How can I break up scar tissue and adhesions in my face post parotidectomy?
I am surprised that the contour hasn't settled down in three months. I've found both massage and professionally-performed lymphatic drainage massage to be very helpful for this type of problem. I recommend that you discuss this with your surgeon to see if they have any objections to this approach. The good news - in the vast majority of cases, this will improve with time.
