    It all depends on how much you want the scar from the incision to show. The tissue that is healing is much more susceptible to sunlight. If you expose it to the light, especially by "tanning" the scar will be highly visible and stay that way. If you keep it covered for around 6 months, you will keep the scarring to a minimum. Your decision.

    I wish you well.
