dermaroller scar tissue

Postby kez140 » Wed Jun 01, 2011 2:44 am

Hi there Dr,
Do you think a dermaroller or skin roller tool would help with scar tissue from a rhinoplasty (nose job).I am 10 months post op and I have a slight pollybeak after surgery, its not terrible but i can feel the bump, i wouldnt go under surgery to fix it as its not terrible but it does bug me. I spreader grafts (EAR) put in to help with breathing so to be honest im not completely sure if it is a pollybeak or the spreader grafts?

It feels like a little bump on the skin and know people can have kenalog injections to soften this up and break it down. If in my case, it is scar tissue, would a dermaroller or skin roller device be effective for this or not? And also are there any dangers to using this post rhinoplasty, for example could it cause problems with my spreader grafts like infection?
Hope you can help

You should definitely NOT due a dermaroller or dermabrasion on your nose after a rhinoplasty for a polly beak.

The answer is kenalog injections if its a soft tissue or scar tissue polly beak but as you said it may be cartilage requiring excision or shaving but only your own primary surgery or some who has thoroughly examined your nose can tell what it is.
