This is my first post! I'm a long time lurker and have learned so much from this board.
I will be getting my first session of punch grafting on my cheeks in a week and was wondering if anyone who has also had this done could share how long their healing process was. I guess the first benchmark i'm curious about is: how long after the procedure can you comfortably go out in public (with makeup on)?
Thanks in advance!
im looking to get a punch graft but on my nose. how did yours turn out?
were you left with any scars from the stitches, and what kind of stitches were used?
My cosmetic dermatologist informed me that it is not possible to have punch grafting on the nose (because I thought I wanted it done on myself). She told me this is because the nose heals differently than the rest of the skin on the face.
ah that really sucks, did they say what other options are there?
ive seen so many skin grafts done on noses that have been succesfull, arent there any other procedures involving grafting that can be done on the nose, if not punch excision?
mine is scar tissue but its severely hyperpigmented, heres a link to the pictures of it: week following it healing http://www.realself....-acne-scar-nose
7 weeks or so later (following heavy vitamin c and licorice usage):
normally my hyperpigmentation fades after 8/9 months regardless of how bad it is but this one is definitely a scar as its a complete different texture to the rest of my skin and is much darker than my usual hyperpigmentation, which is why i just wanted complete excision and grafting of the scar. im asian so i dont know what other treatments would be effective.
(sorry that was long just thought id thoroughly explain) xxx
have a nice day, you arent alone in this xxxx
