Parotide gland surgery scar.

Hi I am 25 year old boy. I have undergone a parotide gland surgery 4 months ago, but the scar on the surgery part is not getting healed properly as my doctor said it will be thin layer after 3 months but seeing my scar I don't think it will go away, I really worried a lot. its looking odd near my ear.Also my doctor suggested me to use silicon patches please suggest me what i can do now? Is it good to use silicon patches??If not please help me some other solutions. much appreciated.

Lasers, microneedling/PRP can all be used to improve this type of scar.  But i suggest posting photos and seeing an expert.  Best, Dr. Emer.
