I am having this procedure done in July by Dr Nettle from Silkwood Medical in Sydney, Australia. I am a 25 year old female who will be travelling interstate for it. I would love to get in contact with anyone else who is also having the procedure done by him this year, preferably females of a similar age. Also, if anyone has had this done and would like to get in contact with even some before/after photos or advice that would be great!
4 months post op.

4 months post
Just wanted to post a quick update with how everything is going after 4 months since the op. There's still lots of healing to be done but I am very happy with my results so far. I have zero pain now, there's been no pain since maybe 1 month post or even before! I'm not wearing my fringe off my face very often yet, the scar is still too noticeable for me to feel 100% comfortable yet, I'm not big on makeup so until it's unnoticeable with no makeup or just a tinted moisturiser I will continue to keep the scar covered. In saying that, that is just my choice as I prefer to keep the scar clean, once or twice I have worn my hair off my face with some concealer and no one (including myself) could notice. The scar is still slightly red but I know part of that is related to the massaging I do at least once a day: Hair is growing through the scar and even on the other side of the scar so I have no doubt it will be completely camoflaged in another few months. My only complaint at this stage is the scars from my temples back on either side of my head which are still noticeable when I tie my hair back if I'm not careful, but I have noticed a huge improvement in this area just in the last week or so. I am completely 100% happy that I had this done and could not recommend Dr Nettle enough. For anyone in Australia considering this there is no reason to travel to America to have it done (which I definitely looked into myself as well!)
