How do I Remove Scars at Home Caused by Surgery?

By Kassie Kleifgen

Scars are caused by a deep scratch or cut; they are the body's way of healing itself. A scar is a mark that appears after the wound has completely healed and sometimes stays forever. Scars appearing after surgery are common because the surgeons have to completely cut through the skin, leaving a deeper cut than the ones you get from accidents. By making scars disappear at home, you can repair your skin to make it smooth again.

Scars from surgeries are often larger and more raised.

Step 1

Apply Aloe Vera gel to the wounds if they are still open and not completely healed. This will help prevent the surgical incisions from scarring.

Step 2

Rub fresh lemon juice on your scars everyday. The lemon juice will help lighten the color of the scars before completely getting rid of them. The lighter the scars are before removal, the better the results you will get.

Step 3

Mix together an equal amount of sandalwood paste and rose water. Apply the paste on the scars and leave it on overnight. Wash off the mixture in the morning with warm water. Do this every night until the scars disappear. This is one of the best home remedies to get rid of scars.

Step 4

Rub lavender oil over the scars every morning after the sandalwood and rose water is washed off. Allow the oil to sink into the scars for the duration of the day.

Step 5

Take any source of vitamin E every day. Vitamin E comes in the form of pills or oil. Vitamin E helps repair the skin from the inside out.
