Dr. Dean Kane Q & A
Q. Is this scar tissue after my facelift? It has been 6 days after surgery and I noticed this day 2. My surgeon told me I will not have scar but I doubt he even took a look at it. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
A. Any puncture, trauma or incision will leave a scar. Healing is a dynamic process which takes time to seal the division of the skin and remodel the scar. At 6 days, you a looking at the approximation of the incision and not yet at the scar / healing process.

Discuss your concerns with your surgeon and what may be done to optimize the healing process.
I wish you the best!
