Detaching Facial Adhesion Without It Reattaching?
I have a scar on the side of my cheek as a result of a prior infection. This caused an inch scar to 'melt' down to the tissue below and create a dent. It's basically 'stuck' there and doesn't move with my expressions. I've had surgery to detach the scar and fill the dent with fat, but when it healed it reattached again, and the dent is still there. What can be done to prevent the scar from reattaching? And what kind of doctor should I look for? Most facial surgeons I find have never seen a condition like mine.
