  • Advice please! Uneven left vs right

    Hi guys and thank you very much for taking the time to advise me on my restoration. I really appreciate it.
    I have been using the TLC-X to restore for a couple months now (after a little while of manual tugging to get enough slack to start using the device). Even though I haven't grown enough skin to use any of the spacer disks, I am convinced that the disks will eventually lead to a more natural looking result. The reason I mention this is because I want to keep using this device and am not really interested at this point in using other devices. However, I have encountered a problem and am not sure where to go from here. The left side (from my perspective) of my new skin growth is twice of that on the right side. I'm not sure whether it started from an uneven cut or uneven manual tugging perhaps but as I continue using the tlc-x, the problem seems to be getting worse. Should I not worry about it and just try to get the most even application of the device as possible and hope that it evens out, or maybe should I try another method (like taping or whatever) to even it out and then return to the tlc-x after it is even?

    Again thanks a lot for your input! I am so happy that I can regain at least some of what was so wrongfully taken from me at birth. Oh, and this is my first post ever.

    I also use TLC-X, and my Lt. and Rt. are uneven too! but I believe that it will be corrected when I have enough skin for covering, Do you use tugging method also??

      My advice is WHO CARES. This will sort itself out over time and will be barely noticeable. Manual tug on the other side if it's bothering you.

      PS: Great progress. I'm jealous!
