i have had skin grafting surgeries and the scars are horrible, from an injury from work, they are on both legs, so i can no longer wear a dress, shorts, etc, i fight to this day a depression from not being able to feel like a woman, having to wear long pants everyday and seeing beautiful ladies with dresses and shorts, and going to the beach, that is gone for me, no i am not so depressed to hurt myself, i just want to try and get rid of the scars, my upper legs were used for the skin grafts and both lower legs were grafted, at least an 6x6 inch graft on both lower legs, my question is, is there anything that can help the scarring??? thank you

I am so sorry for your experience. Skin grafts can leave scars. There may be ways to improve or remove these - for instance with skin expansion. I would consult one of Connecticut's many excellent Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, possibly one at Yale's Burn Center to discuss what might be done. Hope this helps. Best wishes.
