In Topic: Excision Or Co2 Laser

30 May 2015 - 04:06 AM

Excision first, and possibly followed by laser resurfacing to blend the scar edges to the surrounding skin.  You might get lucky and heal really well and end up not needing a resurfacing procedure.

In Topic: People Get Disgusted When I'm Around.

To be totally honest, as much as you say its not BDD (but later relented that it could be some level of BDD), I think this is CLASSIC BDD.  I see some VERY minor scarring, but your view of it is totally disproportional.  I'm not being judgemental, but this is clearly something psychiatric, not physical. 

That said, I understand your feelings.  Sometimes I feel like I've made progress in my scar revision journey, but then out in the real world, I constantly, and I mean constantly get double takes and stares that linger just a little too long.  Then there are people who are just rude enough to mutter something under their breath, but within earshot of me.  It sucks, and I'm just so tired of the disrespect.  It's either people not wanting to meet my eyes, or they outright just give me dirty looks.

I just got some stuff from owndoc, and actually it came in under 2 weeks, and I'm in California.  Shouldn't be a problem.

In Topic: Subcision~ My Journey So Far~

27 May 2015 - 03:23 AM

Seriously, I wished I would have gone down this route in the beginning of my scar revision journey, speaking as someone who's dropped massive amounts of money and more importantly lost time in the process.   Funny thing is, I actually did start out doing a couple of subcisions, but it was with a not so talented physician and I was not aware of the suctioning protocol at the time.   I think the suctioning is really the key element to prevent the scars from reattaching during the first few critical weeks post-subcision.

NomNom, your results are really amazing!  Keep it up.
