    aaaw! you're very beautiful :D and thank you for posting your pictures.

    As for your nose excision scar, your not alone...

    I also had a nose excision in the exact same spot 3 yrs. ago. The surgeon left the stitches in for only 3 days. I'm fairly sure the excision would have been an improvement compared to the hole that was there, but one of the stitches left a deep cut creating a new scar.

    This new scar continues to peel and never seems to heal no matter what i do. If i use any topicals on it, it looks worse. Makeup makes it stand out more too. ... Do you experience the same?

    I was told it needs to be redone, but sadly cannot find a PS who is willing to redo.

    Did you find it difficult to find a doc to do your nose excision?

    Sorry it's taken me so long to reply. I haven't checked the boards in awhile. Anyhow, it wasn't that difficult for me to find a surgeon to perform the excision actually. In fact, he had to redo one excision on my nose near the bridge, not the tip. It seems like forever, but it finally healed and I eventually went and got a spot CO2 treatment to smooth out the scars. And it worked great! The scar on the tip of nose is gone, and the other excision site is much improved. I may go back in November for one more final CO2 treatment to really make it obselete. But all in all, I'm pretty happy with my nose. I can go out of the house without any makeup and not feel self conscious about it.

    Topicals helped me, such as Retin-A. But what really helped me was MaMa Lotion. It's fantastic! If you have any residual hyperpigmentation....it will get rid of it. Try it out. It's quite affordable.

    GL!
