Options for Facial Scar and Asymmetry Correction?
After a car accident in which I lost some skin and tissue on my forehead I have a red, wide, slightly depressed perpendicular scar running from right under my hairline all the way down to between my eye brows.
Because of the skin and tissue loss, the plastic surgeon who patched me up was forced to push the left side of my forehead over to meet the right side, causing my left eyebrow to be raised slightly higher than my right. Also, at the top of my scar, I have a medium sized goose egg which has not subsided after 6 months.
Can my right eyebrow be raised to help create symmetry to my face? What can be done to help my goose egg subside? Are there any nonsurgical procedures for correcting this scar or would surgery be the best way to improve its appearance?
