Dear Dr. Lam
Dear Dr. Lam sorry to bother you again but I had a couple of questions regarding my complex scar and wanted to show you the results after the surgery. Unfortunately my scar has opened again
1- Is it normal to have a skin peeling procedure just 12 days after the scar revision procedure and only 2 days after taking the stitches off. The peeling was done by a natural lotion with a sort of menthol ingredient.
2- Since the doctor did the surgery on four different layers of the skin, some of the inside stitches are going to be permanent, is that normal wont it make the outer surface of the skin looking swollen or will the swellness go with time. I cant understand why my scar does not heel
3- unlike before it seems to be taking the same color of my original skin. How long do you think it will take for me to see the final results. Do you think that faxel laser would help.
4- I did not stop smoking after the surgery, could that be a reason why my scar has opened again? My scar is tired from 6 surgeries. If I wished to do my 7th one at your clinic in Dallas would that be possible or to risky. If yes how long should I wait and how would you proceed different from the other doctors
Forgive me for bothering you Dr. but the scar is really bothering me, Appreciate your help and time Doctor, may god bless you
