i am 12 weeks post revision and scar is visible straight across columella, slightly indented/notched and inside the nostrils is raised. I am using silicon gel as recommended by my dr but worried that i need more drastic measures. must i wait 1 year or does dermabrasion/laser only work in the initial weeks? i do not want to risk having scar revision surgery.
How Long to Wait Before Getting Columella Scar Dermabrased or Lasered?

12 wks post open rhinoplasty
It is extremely rare to have to perform a revision of the scar after a rhinoplasty. You should give it a year to heal.
