Are there alternative treatments to revision surgery and kenalog injections to treat post mini lift bumps?
3 years ago
I had my first mini lift 15 years ago. It turned out great. Last year at age 65, I had my second mini lift from the same doctor. On the whole, it looks good, but I was left with three raised areas on my left jaw (buccal fat areas). This past year, I have had 6 kenalog injections at varying strengths up to 40 mg. None have made an impact. The surgeon has suggested a revision surgery at no cost to me. What do you think? Is there any other treatment option?

Hi. I find that the vast majority of bumps after surgery resolve with time and gentle massage. I reccomend gentle massage in an upward direction. I would discuss this with your surgeon to get his OK. Good luck. Dr. Pontell
