#3346019 My Subcision

Posted by Coppedsynergy999 on 05 May 2013 - 04:25 PM

 

Yeah you're right it is vague. Mine are below the corners of my mouth, but about halfway down between the corners of my mouth and the very bottom of my chin and extend in from the corner - in a diagonal. If that makes sense. I thought this entire area was less fatty than the cheeks, like you said, which is why it would be more difficult.


 

I have an appointment for June 21 - which is the earliest I can get time off from work. I have only found several experiences where people had subcision done to this area. 1 or 2 of them said it made it worse, a couple said it worked the least well in this area and a few said they had improvements. Is this a problem area for you as well?

 

 

 

Thank you so much for updating! I am curious because I have scars on either side of my chin too and I don't see many people that have this area treated. It is usually the cheeks. So please keep us posted! I don't think the fruit juice will harm you at all. I'm sure it has some good vitamins and the sugar isn't going to delay healing.

Are you planning on having subcision on your chin soon, michi31? smile.png I don't see why it wouldn't work in that area, although I don't know that much about subcision.

Well I think "on either side of the chin" is pretty vague. I have two very large and deep compound rolling scars under both of the corners of my mouth. I dont see why it would be any different from the cheek because it has just the same amount of fleshy tissue. Subcising these areas was not a problem at all for my doctor. Now, If I were discussing scars that are further down your face in areas where theyre is not as much fatty tissue, that may be a problem.

 Based on my experience, this area responds just like any other area would on the face. Theyre is still enough fatty deposits theyre to provide room to work with. You should be absolutely fine. The areas that I think are hard to work with are closer to the jawbone and forehead/temples because theyre is less fat and tissue theyre to work with. I encourage you to seek out treatment from a good doctor. I used to worry about the subcision process alot, but now I see that its really a minor procedure and if youve suffered from acne for as long as i have, this trauma from the procedure is laughable in comparison to cystic acne.

 

 

 

How are you feeling/healing? Sorry I haven't been on for awhile, I have been pretty busy. Hope you can get back to me soon.

Hey, well the sweeling seems to have completely subsided. I have a couple of small lumps that are invisible to the naked eye that I think are a good thing because hopefully they will develop collagen. I have some very minor bruising left on one side of my chin. If everything were to finalize today, ide say my improvement on the right side which was my deepest and worse scar would be at about, 65%. Which asthetically meanas the improvement is around 80%. The scar on my right side which had less lumpiness and swelling ide say evened out at a good 50% but its hard to tell because the area is still dark and can be mistaken for shadows. I know its not over till its over, but thats just speaking as if it were. Im still doing my best to stay as healthy as possible to maximise healing, which can be hard in mdoern times. A couple of things ive learned about subciscion...1. Lumps of any kind are generally a good thing, they provide support to the underlying structures of skin. 2. Stop consuming sugar because its bad for collagen development due to glycation (look it up). 3. Dont fret. Subcision is about as simple as it gets, and i even had a doctor use an 18 nokor needle. Its nothing to sweat about...................Ide love to know where you are located, maybe you can see the same doctor as me?

let us know how it goes!!! Thinking of you! 

 

 

Okay gotcha, well I definitely have my fingers crossed for you. I know you are excited & probably nervous. Good luck with everything

 

 Well I had the subcision last friday. I had Dr. Despain subcise the two worst scars on either side of my chin. I was pleasently suprised on how wonderful of a doctor and person Dr. Despain was. He even went out to the lobby and sat down with me to apologize for needing me to reschedule. You dont find that as much nowadays. As for the subcision, it is now three days later. My left side has a bit of swelling and the scar is not visible at the moment. It is firm and feels kinda like a small knot. The outer appearance it relatively flat. So im happy with that side. The other side seems to not be swollon or bruised at all anymore. Theyre might be some microswelling but that scar too is pretty much gone (at the moment). I heard alot of scar tissue popping and releasing which was a good sign. The bad news is i have been suuuper anal about my diet lately.I didnt realize I wouldnt be able to move my mouth because of the thick bandages and had to drink liquid the first 24 hours. I drank a naked fruit smoothie and realized that it wasnt really that healthy at all. Too much sugar and it had me feeling sick the first couple days cause i didnt know what was making me sick. Do you think drinking the fruit juice affected the healing because of the sugar content? Its amazing how going through this process can be so tense and play on your nerves and emotions. I didnt know what to expect, but now i know that 1. subcision is a good thing and nothing to be scared of if you have a good doctor. and 2. the scariest part of subcision is thinking about it before you even have it. or over-dramatizing it..It was actually kind of pleasent for me but I am a little wierd.

Your welcome. Get enough quality food in and sleep. I think you will do great. Please keep me updated as I am doing  subcision soon also. Im particulary interested in the incision wounds and theyre severity. Im also interested in your overall perception of how traumatizing subcision actually is mentally and physically. Furthermore, if you could list the number of scars and incision points that would help me and others quite a bit. Thanks for posting on here, I really appreciate it.




#3327616 Subcision Happened Today

hey matt i've taken a couple of nights off from retin a and my skin is super dry should i take a few more nights off ...i'm seeing great results though

 Rob. If your skin is still dry take another night or two off. Ive learned it is better to work WITH your skin rather than AGAINST it. I believe rest breaks are good as they may allow some more collagen to grow in between the inflammatory inducing state of retin-a.

Ah man, your a cool dude. Look, take my advice. Sometimes God puts us through things to make us stronger. In this circumstance God put you through some hard times to show you who your real friends are. Just think if the acne hadnt come, youd still be haning around trashy women and maybe even getting one of them pregnant. Just keep your head up brother. I am having the same problem too. But you know what, you will be a TRUE G if you buck up pull yourself up by your bootstraps and swag out better than you ever have before. You can do it man. Grap life by the reigns and ride that shit homey. I lost it all my friend. My dad moved away, my mom had a stroke, I lsot my home, lost alot of freinds, my job, my money,.....................But guess what. Fuck all that dude. Im riding out with the best of em. Im glad as hell my life hasnt been a cakewalk. Ide rather wrestle down a dragon than a damn bunny rabbit. Be a G my man. Start workin out, swimming, listening to good music on the ole ipod. N walk around like you are the shit. Because you ARE


#3205644 My Regimen. Suggestions Greatly Accepted!

Posted by Coppedsynergy999 on 17 January 2012 - 12:18 AM

If i could go back in time I would Never use a cleanser. I would wash my face with water apply bp with absolutely NO moisturizer. Just lt my natural oils do its thing with some drying action of the bp. In my experience moisturizers are BAD for acne.

And just cover your most prone areas

The best advice i could give a newcomer is this. You need to get to know your OWN skin. Dont just use 1 pump or 2 pumps or whatever just cause someone told you that number. You must customize my friend. Maybe you only need a little bp. Dont fall into the trap of numbers and stuff. Your skin is an organ and must be treated differently on a daily basis depending on its condition.
