The stitch(es) are gone!

Look, stitches!

Look, stitches!

Went back to the plastic surgeon’s office today to get my stitches out. Very quick and virtually painless. Just keep it clean and dry for a week, then firmly massage vitamin E or Mederma into the scar to break it up. He wants to see me in three months, and then we’ll talk about dermabrasion to get the rest of the smaller scars.

It looks better than I expected! Maybe this plastic surgery thing IS for me, after all!

Just kidding.

    Fabulous, sis. You’re looking good! I’m glad it was virtually painless. Thanks for being brave enough to share a photo.

    Hey girl! I have a scar from acne in the EXACT same place. Who did your procedure? He did a great job! I’ve been praying to find a doc that can do the procedure: I’ve only gone to one plastic surgeon but he said he was too apprehensive because it was close to the tip.

    You can email me the surgeon if you feel more comfortable with that…thanks !
