Default Wait for SMP

How long post-op should you wait for SMP into the scar?

I know common answers would indicate a year, but I wonder if anyone has heard from a doctor.

I have sent a query into Dr. Rassman but he has yet to respond.

I'd give it at least one year... maybe longer like 18 months. It sort of depends on how you heal. If you do end up getting SMP done we would LOVE to see some pics and get some details about it. Keep us posted.

I agree with Aaron on this. Let it completely heal.

Got a reply from Dr. Rassman, informed me that the minimum wait is six months.

I am guessing because it is basically a procedure that requires 2-3 touchups anyways, so no real danger in getting first procedure done 6 months post-op. Just my 2 cents.
