this type of scarring needs a combination of lasers, fillers, subcision, surgery. I suggest you see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer.
Dear JuneSorry that you have suffered so much with this through your life. Your surgeon is partly correct that a limited mini high facelift, aka cheek lift will help because the acne scars will be released from below and the skin tightened. I have had such patients.However, I do not think that it is your best option. The scars can be released via subcision without undergoing the minilift. Moreover, the contour deficiency in the "holes" of the scar are best filled with refined auto fat stem cells. There has been great success in recent times with the processing of a patients on fat for reinjection into their own body.I have seen many like you and encourage you to consider subcision with autofat. ThanksGreat question
A facelift is not the way to correct acne scars. If you have volume loss, scars will look worse and volume replacement with fillers will help. I would treat with Infini for 2-3 sessions me then fill deeper scars with Bellfill as well as correcting volume loss with it. Please get another opinion.
