Is Tissue Expansion a Good Way to Remove a Depressed Scar on the Face? (photo)
I did a fusiform excision to remove a round depressed scar 4 years ago. And it become a linear scar, with "dog ears". It was not that obvious in the last 4 years. But recently a suture hole near one of the dog ears, is getting bigger and bigger, I think it's because of the strech. Now it's a 4mm dia. round scar at the end of the line scar, and it's a little depressed and shiny comparing with the surronding skin. Can we use a tissue expaner at the dog ear place, to remove the round scar near it?
