scar excision+ how long for resulting scar to fade

Recommended Posts

im getting excision on scars size 4-5 mm diameter

anyone know after surgery how long will it take for the resulting scar to merge with the surrrounding skin/.

after 3-4 months can will the scar be less noticeable

my surgeon told it may take upto 1 year for the resulting scar to fade

that scared me.

i was hoping 4-5 months

im still searching

did u find one

my scars are on cheek

depressed ones

but they are not too small.

like 3-4 mm in diameter

excision is the only solution im looking for,bcos i already tried hell lots of procedure but none works

to be honest with u.ihve never met a doctor as of date who can really look at the scar as i do myself and realy study the shape of it and see wat can be done

these people are just so odd smile.gif)

wats ur opinion of drberman in CA

ihve tried retinA

mederma

tca 25% peels

ND:YAG laser

none works

ican say u none works -may be co2 laser would but tht is terrible bcos of downtime and pigment loss

and even that may not go deep

excision if done by a sensible plastic surgeon is the best

bcos that can only take off the scar tissue.

but most surgeons wont recomend tht bcos laser is wat they can charge quite good money

i hve app with berman for june 3rd for consultation

so ping me after tht

if he say ican get excision ill get couple done in june end

do u know anyone in phoenix who do excision

Berman looks like expert in laser ,not sure about surgery skills though
