*Treatment results may vary

I finally took the decision of doing my scar...

I finally took the decision of doing my scar excision. I have to admit that I am a little scared about getting a worse scar but I believe that if I follow the doctors instrucciones I will be fine. I got this Scar from acne 11 years ago, I it has bother me ever since. I have seen that other people is doing this procedure and they got amazing result with exception of 1 person that got a worse scar because she did a laser treat right away after the surgery (WTF). The doctor told me to stay away from the sun light and also no to do to many face expression for the next 2 days. He also told me to clean the excision 3 times a day (or as often is needed) and moisturized with Bacitracin.
I will keep you updated on my progress. If you have any questions please let me know!

Day 1

Today is Day 1, I notice that the scar looks red and inflamed compare to yesterday

Day 1 ( it's this normal?)

I noticed when I was cleaning my surgery that the wound looked opened like if the stitches came out, I am really concern at this point, I called the doctor and he told me to go to CVS Pharmacy to by butterflies bandages but I tried to see if the sky was able to come together but it did not :(

Day 2

Today, I am going to see Doctor Cory Yeh because to me looks that he did not put the stitches in the correct way, the skin should be closed together and not opened like it looks

Day 2

This is how it looks today

Day 3

Today the wound looks better than yesterday, I started to notice that the cut is closing, can't wait to see how tomorrow is going to look

Day 4

I see that my skin around my wound has a yellow color, I hope that is normal

Day 5

Day 6

Day 7

After stitches removal

Day 1 (After Stitches)

I see that the area looks a little depressed but it think is because of the tension that the stitches were creating and the area is swollen but I think this is looking good

Day 2 (after stitches)

Day 3 (After stitches)

Day 4 (After Stitches)

Day 5 (After stitches)

Day 7 (After Stitches)

Sometimes looks depressed and other days don't, it keeps changing everyday

Day 9 (After Stitches)

After applying Silicon Sheet

Day 10 (After Stitches)

38 days After surgery

This time I put my the before and after

6 months after surgery

I do not like the results, I honestly think I wasted my money

Before and 6 months After

This is how my scar was before the surgery and this is how it looks right now. Like I was saying I am not happy with the results I am not saying that is worse but is not any better than the previous one.

6 months after

I don't regret doing the procedure because this is something I always wanted to try but if could go back in time I would rather to save the $1,500 ???????????? Honestly I thought I was going to get better results
