My surgery was a year ago.The doctor used catgut stitches on my lower lids and now I have huge white scarring. I also have a thick dark discolored strip that runs the length of the bottom of my eye and above the scar. I cannot close my eyes completely and am presently receiving Fraxel laser scar treatment and wearing a silicon strip at night. I have had three treatments spaced four weeks apart. Minor improvement. My wounds are very obvious. I am becoming more reclusive and self-conscious. What treatments do you recommend?

Fraxel therapy doesn't help scars.
If you are a year out from lower eyelid surgery and the scar is a real issue, something is wrong. I do not believe Fraxel treatment will do you any good and you certainly should be able to close your eyes by now. Time for another opinion.
