Hi Dr Lam,
I have a indented scar on my forehead, right above eyes. I had surgery many years ago, over 15yrs ago, one surgeon butchered me, than I had another save me. But after taking on such a horrific scar, and after a few months, the scar opened became indented. I have rough edges which make it hard to cover with makeup, looks more noticeable. anyway now for the present, two years ago I decided to give it one more try, to my many unsuccessful surgeries. I went to see another surgeon, very hesitant I was, I explained my situation that my skin does not react well to dissolvable stitches, he convinced me that 10 years ago it was different, honestly I thought he would laser it something else. Well after the first scar revision, not only did he make longer, cause he said he had to, but wider and so horrible, he decided he wanted to wait 4 months and perform another scar revision, again now worse... he then did a quick laser.. OMG!! anyway I decided a month ago, he was revered to me by a client. He is head surgeon of two very good NYC Hospitals, I went to see him for a consultation, explained all the unsuccessful surgeries. He was the only Dr that said before anything, he would freeze my entire area with botox. But he only wants to do half of the scar, just to see. Dr Lam I just want to know, should I just learn to live with this scar and be happy. Is it that my skin maybe cant take yet another surgery. Is it too soon, since the other surgery was 8-9 months ago.. Dr lam please tell me this sounds right, should I try this procedure, with botox give it a try..Or what would you do different. very very nervous and have lost TRUST in surgeons..sorry.
