  1. Patient’s name, and country of residence along with an available email address
  2. Scarring situation including location and how it happened
  3. What was done to treat the scaring?
  4. What were the results and how did the patient’s life change because of the treatment?
  5. Physician’s name. location, email address and his/her comments

If available, before and after photos may also be submitted. Photos must be in JPEG format. The preferred language for content submission is English.

Submitted stories will be reviewed by a panel of the LSFG and will be considered for publication on this website.

Email your story and any photos to Atula Gupta, MD at atula.gupta81@gmail.com.
