Facelift keloid scars can be improved

I have successfully treated patients with keloid scars from facelift surgery procedures and neck lift surgeries. Most keloids are improved with low recurrence rates.

Scar after Face Lift

Scar treatment after face lift surgery varies greatly. Generally, plastic surgery to treat scars range from $1000 to $3000. Other potential scar treatments include steroid injection and massage. Only after a comprehensive evaluation can a plastic surgeon help determine appropriate options for you. Best of luck.

A scar revision can usualy be done fairly easiliy under local.  The price will vary from region to region. You can probaly price it out from a few people in yoru area, but shouldn't run more than a few thousand dollars.

Costs of scar revision

Our typical costs for a scar revision that long is about 1500 dollars. The price can vary depending upon the region you are located so I would expect from 1500 to 2500 dollars would be reasonable.

Tough lesson, did you not read here on REAL:SELF that the LSL has a 50% approval rating!!! Cost for scar revision in MIAMI would be $2500. Sorry for the experience.
