How to Treat Tight Scar in Mouth After Chin Implant Surgery?
4 years ago, I had a chin implant put in through my mouth that was too big and misplaced. They took it out and re-inserted a smaller implant two months later. After the second proceedure, the implant was still too big. 6 weeks later, the second implant was removed and my mouth re-stiched.
All proceedures were done through my mouth. 4 years later, I still have a scar in my mouth that is very tight and uncomfortable. Is there any way to help the scar? Would steriod injections help? I worry that they would change the shape of my chin.
A steroid injection may help your tight scar after Chin Implant Surgery.
