Scarring from face lift hematoma
This is a discouraging complication.
But it is too early to consider revision - it will disrupt your healing and a second operation will be needed.
You should wait at least 6 months. As for laparoscopic release - it can be done but is usually better to use the existing incision and redrape the skin - release of the scar may not be all that is needed.
yes, fat injections can be done at the same time. They will not release the skin but can help to smooth it.
I do recommend using as little steroid as possible - although it helps the swelling now, I have found that it will loosen the face lift result itself - and the face lift may need to be redone on that side. best wishes.
