Dear Dr. Lam:
I saw your youtube videos which I was very impressed so I end up on your site now.
I also had a scar revision on my cheek about 4 months ago so I just wanted to share my
experience and also hoping to seek your advice or your thoughts on its progress.
A scar on my cheek was a vertical straight line that was 2 inches long and this was
very old scar and was very slightly raised. My doctor did W incision and to avoid
dog ears on the bottom and top, its incision line became a little longer now.
My doctor told me not to use anything except putting on steri strip so I had this 24/7
and changed them after 3-5 days. Also avoid taking vitamin E.
I am Asian guy living in the states and I went overseas (E. Asia) to do this scar revision.
I was told that incision line usually gets red and look worse until about 2-3 months after
the surgery and will decrease slowly after and get better but some cases will still be
red for a year but eventually will look a lot better as time passes and incision lines
will most likely be unnoticeable after 6 months to a year depends on skin type and after care.
By looking at this picture (had flash light on),
do you think I am doing alright? I think upper part is a little bit depressed and
I am not sure if this will be this way forever but hoping that it will raise up a
little bit over the time...Thank you!!!
