A year ago I was diagnosed with a basal cell on my face, had Mohs surgery and then the Rhombic flap to close. Being a very vain women, I wasn't sure if I would ever be satisfied with the outcome. My plastic surgeon recommended CO2 laser surgery to improve the texture of the flap and help the scar blend in.
I have had three treatments and am very pleased! With make-up the scar is barely noticeable and the texture of the flap is much better. The benefits of CO2 laser surgery do not come to fruition until 6 months; I had my first procedure end of November and my last mid March. I already see a big difference.
Dr. M is professional, knowledgeable, and respectful. I am a very strong individual, but this year I have also experienced great vulnerability. Dr. M has been appropriately responsive to both. I must have had a million questions, to which, he answered all of them. I couldn't ask for anything more in a surgeon!
