Hi, I am looking at Austin doctor's to do my TT. I will be moving there this summer. I'm assuming you would recommend the doc you used. Is there anyone else I should consult with to keep my options open? Thanks.

Yes I do recommend my Doctor she was the only one i consult, I did not think about too much because I was really scrared to do it, i went to see her and two weeks later did it but if i have to do it again i will go back with her i had great results.

It was 2-3 weeks before I could stand up comfortably.  Then after that when I over did it and got tired I would get so tight and swollen that I was actually hunching over a bit again.  By about 5 weeks that is all gone.

Hi Temple,

I didn't start using anything until between week 2-3.  I started with the Palmer's Vitamin E Oil for 8 weeks (2-3 times a day), and then changed over to the Mederma cream at 8-10 weeks.  I used this (3) times a day for 3 months and then after that switched over to the bio oil (2-3 times a day for several weeks.  I have been a little bit crazy with all of this scar care but am totally happy with how mine is looking. 

Even to this day I still use the Palmer's oil every day on my entire body after every shower.  That scar will continue to heal and improve for a year or two so I figured it can't hurt to keep up with the oils.
