Request for sydney surgeon recommendation

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have had acne scars for many years. I tried Fraxel Laser Resurfacing years ago and it made no noticeable difference despite costing a small fortune. Have also tried a variety of peels. I would like to look into the possibility of:
- subscisions
- punch excisions
- TCA for ice pick scars and
- dermafillers

Can anyone suggest a surgeon in Sydney (or Newcastle or Central Coast areas) who has a lot of experience with this sort of work. I read on some other posts that dermatologists may not do as good a job and that makes sense to me.

Also if anyone can advise on who not to visit, I would be very grateful.

Thank you!

I agree...you should look into Dr. Lim.  Also, I just read that in Australia some of the procedures can be partially covered through insurance, which is unheard of here in the US.

hi, Yellomello
I'm a student in China and maybe I will continue my study in Sydney this year. I have the same trouble in acne scars. I learned that only laser is not effective from this forum, but it's not easy to find an experienced specialist who can do subcision, tca cross in China.
So if you get any latest information, please share it with me.
Thank you!
Regards.

Hi, thanks for your posts. Dr Lim is in Brisbane QLD - very far from Sydney NSW so isn't an option but I appreciate your comments. SlowDiscovery, I will post my experiences here. I believe Dr Shawn Richards, at Westmead and Dr Michelle Hunt at Rhodes are doctors to look into but I will let you know. There can be long wait-lists to see good doctors too. Anyone else, please let me know your thoughts.

Glad to get your post. I heard a hospital in Beijing offers subcision and plasma(a kind of laser), i wanna to have a try. If the treatment is useless, Sydney or Brisbane would be my final options. I will follow you and hope that you have a huge improvement.
Plus, happy Chinese new year!
