Worth It

As a result of a wrist surgery I had a five-inch scar on my left arm. About one inch of the scar did not heal well and it turned into what is called a hypertrophic scar. This is a raised ugly scar, which also gave me some pain and was creating tension in the skin (pulling the... READ MORE

I had previous surgeries which left me with hideous embarrassing scars and a disproportional physique. Dr. P was able to address both these issues by revising my scars and performing a brazilian butt lift. I am very grateful to get an opportunity to rebuild my self esteem. This was definitely...

Just completed Punch Excision on Ice Pick acne scars and wanted to share my experience. The procedure was painless, except for the novocaine needle which actually hurt more than I expected. It's very important that you trust your Dr. because there is cutting and sutures involved in this... READ MORE

I wanted to sit down and review my experience with working with my plastic surgeon. I had amazing neck lift done by him (see photos here) and decided to have a scar revision done by my plastic surgeon. I should mention what my plastic surgeon originally said to me when I spoke to him about Scar... READ MORE

I went to Dr. V for a keloid scar removal. I've been praying and praying for help to help remove my ugly scar on my right knee for a really long time. Finally, I get an opportunity to meet with Dr. V who forever changed my life. The scar improved much much much more because of him. Anytime I... READ MORE

Even though my scar was relatively small, I hated how it looked. Having the scar revised was a simple procedure. I feel better about myself and I'm no longer embarrassed to wear a bikini!   Just updating the cost of the procedure...I had a typo in the first price...probably a... READ MORE

Remove minimal scar. In July of 2010, my nose was fractured in two places due to an accident. After receiving sutures my primary physician suggested I see a specialist to insure that no permanent damage had been done. His personal opinion was that the minor fractures would heal, and that...

At the end of March, a cosmetic surgeon performed an excision on an old indented scar I had on the bridge of my nose. It has now been 5 months & the new scar is still red & has stretched with visible suture lines in it. It is way worse then the original scar I intended on fixing as well... READ MORE

My baby had a 2nd-3rd degree burn on the crown of his head - it was about 3" long and 1-2" wide. It healed up really good and smooth, and didn't require any skin grafts or surgery. The doctor said that after having a scar reduction, a simple surgery, we could expect the scar to look... READ MORE

My procedure was done monday, June 22 around 2 in the afternoon. Ten little sutures were left in place. Doc said... READ MORE

I had been consulting with many local plastic surgeons to revise a wide, dented scar that I had on my leg. One doctor suggested tissue expanders but the price was ten thousand dollars which was too much for me, so then I consulted with another doctor which convinced me to have Restylane injected...

Had Deep FX on my acne scars & a scar 23yrs old (glass cut) did not work! I have tried Fraxel Restore (done 2 years prior to deep FX)& it worked a lot better than the Deep FX. Fraxel only disappeared some of the acne scarring, but Deep FX did nothing! Believe me. Dont waste your money. I... READ MORE

Let me first say that I have very fair skin. The doctor told me that lighter skin colors usually yield greater results. I also had very bad acne scaring around my chin area (dark purple, indented scars). I started my Fraxel treatments in May 2008 (roughly a year ago) and got 6 treatments. My... READ MORE

Had a horizontal bikini scar from a hysterectomy some 20 years ago. This was a crooked scar. Caused one side of my stomach to be pulled down lower than the other side. Old scar was cut out and a much nicer straight scar was made. Also, had lipo due to 30 lbs of weight loss over the last 10 yrs... READ MORE
