Virtually no scars

I was scheduled for a lumpectomy. They went back in through that small incision and removed the remainder of the lump. The lymph node dissection involved an incision under my arm. That was a little bit more uncomfortable, but there again, I came home and I had steri-strips and some gauze bandages and that was the extent of it. I'm surprised even now when I look at my breasts and under my arms, under my arm there's no trace of an incision. On my breast it's a very small incision. There was virtually no scar.
