Chemical Peel

Thank you for your question. You should wait for a full recovery to undergo a chemical peel. Another option is for you to laser the incision areas a month following surgery to improve the scar. I suggest that you move forward by consulting with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Chemical Peel after Surgery

I would wait until your surgery is 100 percent healed and your plastic surgeon gives the clearance for it before having a chemical peel.  Best, Dr. Green
