I understand that my case is unusual and I know there are no guarantees that there will be any improvement. Has anyone experienced successful revision ?

Ok. I'm not sure how to approach this as I'm usually very positive and diplomatic. However, I feel I owe you an honest answer.
I must say that although I am pleased with the overall result of the subtle lift, I didn't enjoy the small neat stitches or nearly invisible scars I'd seen in pictures of other patients. I found my stitches and resulting scarring to be much less than neat.
I was so self conscious that i agreed to scar revision some 15 months later.
The revision of my prominent scars took place in a treatment room in the nurses station as a short outpatient appointment. It was a very painful experience due to the necessary numbing injections into existing scar tissue. Not for the faint hearted. I felt pretty wobbly afterwards and wasn't looking forward to trying to hide the blue stitches again until the time of their removal in two weeks.
Now several months on, the general appearance of the scars has improved although I am still very aware of them. Going through the whole process again was tiresome but worth it for the level of improvement achieved although my scars still feel tender and I'm still not convinced they are quite as neat at they could be. I must add that I took meticulous care of the wounds each time. I don't smoke or have any history of scarring or slow healing. I'm still searching for possible ways to reduce them further.
I do hope you find this informative and I apologise that's it's not the usual glowing reference. I guess the whole idea of this forum is to show all points of view. Would I do again if I knew then what I know now? Probably!
Definite improvement but still not great.
I'm not sure at this stage if I'd recommend the procedure as it's been 2 and a half years and I'm still aware of the scars which still itch and remain raised and visible.
Thanking you in advance for your reply.
