3 months too early?


I had my 3 month follow up with my PS today and he recommended starting micro needling on my scar ASAP. There’s some spots that are raised at the bottom of my anchor lift. I feel like 3 months is too soon to start, it doesn’t seem like we’ve given it enough time to heal. What do you think? My surgery was 06/17/19.

  • TBH I don't have much experience with microneedling a fresh scar. I do see that it is raised and red. It will likely settle down somewhat with time alone. Ask to see if they have any before and after photos and what their anecdotal experience has been. In the meantime, definitely do scar massage and consider silicone gel strips/sheeting. You can buy that at the drug store. Good luck.


    I would be honored to see you at my office in Raleigh, NC!
