They now have the ability to remove many scars. It takes about 5 treatments to thoroughly remove a scar. If money were not an option would you have any of your scars removed? I have one that is kind of bad, but I will not have it removed it is part of me. I will leave it be. How about you, will you remove them or keep them because they are a part of you?

I consider scar to be part of one's life experiences, but on some people may be affected socially or within their selfsteem. As of right now I wouldn't consider it since most of my scars are not that bad, but it is good to know that it's an option whomever requires or wants it.

I can see if someone had a scar on their face or a scar that reminded them of something really traumatic. It is nice that they have the ability to have them removed now.

I wouldnt have them removed personally. i have them for a reason each one brngs back a memory. my favourite one is one that I have on my knee. My mum was pregnant with my little brother when I was 9 and I was so excited about going to mothercare to get him some gifts that I went flying in a car park and had to get cleaned up in mothercare. We had to go to the hospital for stitches and my m um aited until the next day when I was at school to go back! Such a great memory!

Hello ladym33 , yes I would have a scar removed. I got a scar from falling down face first when I was a toddler when I was jumping on the bed. I have a scar just above my nose. I say to anyone who asks I tell them it left over mark from my previous life as Bajoran.

Investing money in esthetical problems is not that profitable, unless you work in the modeling business. Or if you have a horrible face mutation. But other than that, I don't see why anyone would want to remove a scar. Some are even useful, reminders of some stupid thing we did in the past. And some can be quite sexy, especially when you can brag about a "horrible" accident that you managed to survive (like flying in the air on a bike and having an ugly fall, in my case).

I really don't think that I would have them removed. I've gotten so used to having my scars that I think it would be really weird not to have them. I feel that they've become such a part of who I am that I'm not really sure it would be right to get rid of them. It's almost like asking to get rid of a part of my personality or something to that effect, if you know what I mean.

Well my scar haulted my dream of being a naked model. I guess if you have one that is really bothering you and you just want it completely gone then I think you should do it. With all the advancements in medicine this should have been the first thing they did. I would probably have mine removed because I could.

My scars all have a memory that goes with each one. I will leave them be as well. In fact, I know that I have about ten ways to spend that money before I would ever consider removing my scars.
