    Default Facial scars :(

    I was on the balcony last night, sitting down, and the flatmate knocked over a folded up metal screen which fell and cut me on the side of the face. It bled very little and hurt very little but it was deep. We went to emergency and after being there a few hours and various people looking at it they booked me in for a plastic surgeon to fix it up tomorrow. They take more trouble with women and scars, they said. (Bless the National Health Service...)

    It looks like a small sword cut an inch long or a little more, down by my jawline/chin. I was very lucky that it was not worse - in the middle of my face, or bigger and jagged, or broken nose or damaged eye... I'm guessing there won't be an awful scar but there will be a scar nonetheless. It's just vanity but I am a bit upset. I'm not a bad looking girl, you know. At least where it is on my face, I can hope it will just add romantic character...or something... And a few friends told me that either they, or others, had similar damage to the face one way or another and it scarred almost not at all, especially when a plastic surgeon gave it attention. If I were a man, it would just look awesome and manly, but I'm not. :S

    Anyone have any recommendations about lessening such scars - ie. I've heard vitamin E cream is good? Or just saying something to help me feel better!

    Eh, fuck it. Vanity sucks. I'd wear it proudly if it were me.

    I do kind of like the fact that it looks like a sword cut. Romantic. I could still do without it though. But it's not massively disfiguring or anything.

    I don't think any male will notice. We are notoriously lacking in detail-orientedness

    It probably won't have any effect on your attractiveness in either direction. And if somebody has a romantic interest in you they will not only not mind but might actually associate it with you and love it for being a part of you.

    Basically, it adds character and makes you even more unique.

    I'm told that oil of evening primrose and vitamin E are both good for scarring. I never tried on mine though.

    Haha. Good to hear. I think/hope it will either be not very noticeable at all, or just the "good story" kind of scar. I do have a funny collection of scars - especially the one on my thumb where a horse bit me!

    It's weird how pretty much instantly, when I realised my eyes, nose etc were ok, I was like "oh nooooo I don't want a scar on my face." Didn't know I was so vain.

    It is weird, isn't it. I never ever thought I'd be bothered about scarring, have always thought it's pretty cool. But I found I really wasn't happy when it happened. (And mine isn't even on my face.)

    The other scars I have are tiny and need to be pointed out (the horse bite one is occasionally worth pointing out for the story.) I did have one chicken pox scar on my face when younger - it was the only one which was really nasty and got slightly infected - but partly concealed by my eyebrow and I think it has now faded completely. I seem to be a person who heals up nicely anyway.

    I also got a tetanus shot - might have had one in the past but certainly more than ten years ago - and antibiotics for several days just on the chance the thing that cut me could cause infection. (Though no sign of anything like that.) They do things thoroughly and that's nice. I didn't expect the hospital to take so much trouble really.

    Yeah. All hail the NHS.
