Will an incision at both ends of the scar on my cheek get rid of the dog ears?
Yes, this is possible. Typically we recommend waiting at least 12 months for the scar to mature on its own prior to considering a revision. If a revision is necessary, either the entire scar can be removed (along with the standing cones of skin) or two small excision of the cones can be performed. I hope this information is helpful.

How to help dog ears and ends of scar?
It can take 6-12 months for a scar to heal, so I would wait a longer amount of time to see the results of the surgery on your cheek. Normally, any dog ears at the end of a scar do flatten out more over time. If they do not, it is fairly simple to make a small incision over each to improve them.
