punch/excision

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I have a few scars that are all relatively small and was hoping to have them surgically removed. I had a few questions:

-- are people who've had this done happy with how it worked out?

-- if it's done well, can one get by without having the area subsequently dermabraded?

-- is this relatively simple? Can any plastic or dermatologic surgeon do this or is it important to go a real expert at it? (Know of any such experts in Chicago?)

-- can an ice-pick scar on one's nose be removed this way?

-- what's the usual cost? $60 a pop?

Thanks,

Chrissy

The patients that I have performed this on have been quite happy.

absolutely

-- is this relatively simple? Can any plastic or dermatologic surgeon do this or is it important to go a real expert at it? (Know of any such experts in Chicago?)

It is very simple.  Any plastics or derms *should* be able to do this, but this doesn't mean that all of them can.

-- can an ice-pick scar on one's nose be removed this way?

Yes, but the nose is famous for retaining scars of all types.

-- what's the usual cost? $60 a pop?

The cost depends on too many variables to answer that question accurately.
