Botched scar revision, PS wants to do again, scared

Postby hollstru » Wed Aug 02, 2017 4:58 pm

So I had scar revision/excision done for a burn mark on my cheek. Surgeon said it would heal flat. Well it didn't and six months later I'm left with a hideous, indented line. Surgeon wants to re-excise it, saying "let's keep the tape on longer this time", will this help?? It's thinner than the original scar but much more noticeable because it's indented. I don't know what to do at this point, I'm afraid to have surgery again since it healed poorly in the first place but I can't go on with this horrible indent on my face. PS said subcision, filler, laser, etc. would be pointless, re-revision is the only answer. Thoughts? Board won't let me attach photo.
