I have a scar on my knee due to surgery, would it be a turn off?

ei.realself.com/.../263100.jpg

In high school, i used to play a lot of soccer and run track. But i damaged my knee pretty badly, tore a ligament from over working myself. So i had to get knee surgery. My scar looks like the one in the link.

  • a turn off? hahaha! not at all chica! REmember it has merit, it shows character, it's a noble deed showing your willingness to work hard! it's just like this...

    "If his unpleasant wounding has in some way enlightened the rest of you as to the grim finish beneath the glossy veneer of criminal life and inspired you to change your ways, then his injuries carry with it an inherent nobility, and a supreme glory. We should all be so fortunate. You say poor Toby? I say poor us."

  • No. It means you lived a little, and aren't afraid to get a little dirty or physical sometimes. For most guys, that's more important than the scar itself.

  • Nope, not at all. :-)

    I can't imagine scars being a huge turn-off for anyone, although I guess gnarly facial scars could damage a person's look a bit, but luckily that's not what you've got.

  • Well, I'm the kind of guy who gets turned on by tan lines. A scar can be sexy as long as it isn't on the face, but then again, I probably still wouldn't care. I like imperfections. They make us unique. The fact that you got it from playing sports is sexy. You aren't afraid to get dirty. You are very pretty, but you won't come across as high maintanence.

  • Only if my scar from being stabbed in the heart is a turn off. The real answer is no, lol. It'd take a really superficial dude to turn you away because of it.

    • oh no your heart :( *hug*. I think so too... i just don't like it, like when i wear short dresses or a short pants i wish it wasn't there

    • It's fine, lol. It happened years ago. And don't be so self conscious about it. You notice it so much more than other people.

  • not at all, no turn off

    • really? how so. and thanks :)

    • With most guys, a nice scar is a badge of honor. You're not afraid to live life. You're not just some helpless girl. You can handle a little trauma.

  • That's not a turn off. I girl that likes to feel like a woman is bed is always a turn on.

  • Nope, it's not a turn off for me at all. And if you turn that scarred knee into a rug burned knee, no guy will notice or care.

  • no i dont think so..after all if a guy really likes u these things are really small compared to the whole deal..and if ur still worried then u should let thte guy know, in the start when u've just started to date him..and then u can judge if he's worth u or not? i mean does he accept u for who u are rather than trying to change u

  • i've heard of laser treatment to darken white scars to sort of camouflage it on the surrounding skin. i'm not so sure about that though. i don't think creams can do much on that cause that's an old scar and the more lightening creams won't work cause that's not hyperpigmentation. there are creams effective though if it's keloid scars. anyway i also have scars on my legs and it bothered me a lot before but my friends, bf and my sisters just laugh at me cause it's not even noticeable. i don't think it's a turn off but honestly it can be a bit unsightly.

  • I don't think it would be. Wouldn't be for me. I have one on my breast from surgery which I'm honestly pretty selfconcious about but I think about it as I can't control what happened for it to be there.

  • Get yourself some apple cider vinegar and put it on. My mum has had two knee surgeries and her scars are now almost cleared up.
