In a recent interview with Life & Style, the former star of “The Hills” described a variety of post-surgery scars ranging from a two-inch long blemish under her chin to lumpy legs, uneven breasts and bald spots left from a brow lift.

“People have fewer scars from car accidents than I have on my body,” Montag told the magazine.

All plastic surgery but especially major surgeries like tummy tucks and breast reductions, can involve scarring. Ask your doctor to show you a picture of what the scar looks like beforehand. Another important question is what sort of treatments they offer to minimize scarring, for example silicone gel (e.g. Strataderm), silicone sheeting or laser procedures. It’s not always easy to know in advance whether or not you’re likely to scar. Some people are more prone to scarring than others. People heal differently, and patients with a poor history of wound healing or keloid scars are at high risk of scarring.
