Hi Dr Sam,
15 days back My Daughter falls down on a sharp chair side which made deep cut vertically at her forehanded, I went to plastic surgery Dr. immediately on emergency and he couldn’t be able to control much due to the blood and a she was awake.. it was stitched two inside stitches and plasters tabs outside, i went after 6 days to remove the plasters and i was not happy as the cut still open and looks bad .. I consult another plastic surgery dr. and he advised me for scar revision surgery with general anesthetics to control the result, he said he needs to remove the dead skin after 1 month from the incident and he needs to do stitches deep and maybe outside if necessary to make it fine line..
I am worried about three things which I really appreciate your advice:
1- is general anesthetics safe for kids age 3?
2- is the scar revision is necessary or there is other effective creams or procedures to avoid it ?
3- the scar is not big its half of my finger first part so do you conceder it bad scar ??
I am in Dubai .. appreciate if you also advise me if any chance you are visiting here ??
thanks a lot for your efforts and help..
