    Maybe I will transplant skin to reduce scars on my upper arm. Has anyone here had such a surgery? Will the skin always look meshed even after it healed?
    I googled "skin graft" and the pictures filled me with disgust. Does it really look that bad? Do my skin need to be meshed to cover the open wound (about 10x8 cm) or is meshing only made for LARGE wounds?

    Alot of the time, the scars fade. It just takes 10-20 years. It's alot better than what you're thinking about though.

    The scars are about 1 cm wide each so they probably won't fade.

    Bio-oil is really good for scars, have you given that a try? Regardless, they will fade over time. Microdermabrasion is also an excellent option.
