I am a senior gal and I was having problems with some itchy tiny bumps that were bothering my eye lids. I would rub my eye lids until they would get swollen. So I went to see a specialist doctor to get the growths removed. They are not cancerous. I then decided that I wanted for the doctor to remove all the brown bumps that were marking my face as I have gotten older. Now I have red marks all over my face. The doc says it will take two weeks for the skin to heal. The tiny skin marks have to scab and then fall off. I have never had this type of procedure done on my face. I get the feeling I will heal a lot faster before the two weeks are up. I am supposed to see the doctor again for a check up on the day before Thanksgiving. I already made plans to be in Vegas on Nov. 25-28th. I am thinking of not canceling VEGAS. I think my skin will be healed by then and the doctor will just say that I am okay. So I have decided to not cancel VEGAS. Has anyone had this type of skin surgery where simple bumps are removed just to look better? LucyR.
