In Topic: Excision?

Sorry but your doctors are clearly taking advantage of you.  And yes your fixation on that one scar is a little disproportionate to the actual problem.  The kind of money you've been throwing at this problem is a little crazy.  I understand it bothers you immensely though.


If TCA Cross is unpredictable, excisions are even more unpredictable.  Speaking from experience here.

I've seen the French one with the punch grafts.  I don't know if I could walk around for 6-8 weeks like that before getting them dermabraded to blend them.  From reading the not-so-great translation, it seems like the after pictures were posted 2 years post op.  I believe he said that some of the circular borders on the punch grafts were still visible and not fully blended in with the surrounding skin.  I think he also said that he only found out about subcision after doing the punch grafts and he thinks that may have been more appropriate for his scars because they were mainly rolling scars with normal appearing skin on the surface.  Still, it looks like a pretty good result.  If you look carefully you can indeed still see some of the rings around the punch grafts.

Definitely progress.  If it starts to get more inflamed I'd get another kenalog shot to nip it in the bud.

Hey Tricia


Are you accepting private messages? 


So it would seem the inflammation / lumps are quite visible?  I'm a little confused about the part where you mentioned that you are having a hard time healing and where you said you "messed with it."  Did you try to lance it or something and now it created a wound?  I'm assuming that because you mentioned granulating tissue, which indicates to me an open wound.
