Lip lift - terrible scar from surgery abroad
- I am so sorry you have had such a poor experience.
- If your surgery was more than 6 months ago, a scar revision is probably the best treatment.
- Steroid injections may soften it, but are likely to widen it as well.
- Surgery should be done by a plastic surgeon under magnificiation to avoid further reducing your lip.
- Please find a plastic surgeon as near to you as possible to help you - Australia has many well qualified palstic surgeons.
- Start with the website of the Royal Australian College of Plastic Surgeons.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
