I had several moles removed when I was 11 and resulted in several deep and ugly scars on my face. They look very much like chickenpox scars, and I decided to repair the them last year and have been researching for doctors for a while on this forum. I have my worst scar excised on Nov 25th and I'll update once the stitches are removed, right now it is still covered under the surgical tape.
Surgical Tape Removed Today
I saw my new post op scar for the first time today, and happy with the progress. Dr. Kim said I need to apply sunscreen and it will still take a year to fully heal.
2 Weeks Post Op
My scar is still red, but flattened a lot.
One Month Post Op
Here's an updated photo, my scar is still hard and red, but it's getting better. Since I have a long scar, I know I need to give it more time to heal, but it looked much better from a month ago, right?
After More Than 6 Months

After more than 6 months, I went back to check with the doctor again and found sometime to take a picture. The lighting wasn't good for the picture, but you have my other scars as comparison. My scar is almost flat, sometimes it is still a little red, other times you can barely see it. Overall I'm happy with the operation.
