Plastic Surgeon Dr. Dean Kane of Baltimore Answers Question Regarding Facelift Scars

Q. I have a quastion about my scar after facelift. Its been one year since I had a facelift. What do you recommend doing to get rid of the scar? A. This is a mild hypertrophic scar following a facelift which is generally easy to treat. Options include:
  1. massage
  2. intralesional steroid injection
  3. IPL and laser
  4. excision of the scar with revision of the earlobe attachment to the facial skin.
Please review these options with your surgeon and if he / she are uncomfortable or unable to provide the care, consider a second opinion consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. I wish you the best!
