I’m a newbie in this forum and would like to get inputs from you guys. I am from the US but I am currently in the Philippines scouting for a good scar surgeon. I opted to have my scar surgery here because the cost is almost 1/5 compared to having it done in the US. My questions are as follows:
1. Does anybody here know any good acne scar surgeon or clinic in the Philippines? There are a lot of clinics here that offers scar revision, microdermabrasion, punch graft, excision, and almost all other acne scar surgical procedures but I would like to know if anybody here could recommend one based on experience?
2. I have icepick acne scars all over my face and I have been doing a lot of research on the Internet on the best way to “improve” my scars. I know that there is no way that my scars would vanish totally but I am expecting some, if not noticable improvements. Based on what I have researched, I am considering on having “punch excision”. After which I am considering laser or microderambrasion to improve scarsd left by the aforementioned procedure. Of course, this is something that I need to discuss with my doctor. I know that some doctors would make recommendations based on how much they will be earning. And so for this reason, I would like to get anybody’s opinion from here on what would be the best procedure based on your experience or research.
Would highly appreciate any response.
Thank you in advance!
