So the basic rule of thumb is leave revision surgery or treatment until there is no chance of nature fixing the problem. You seem to have some scar fixation at the CM angle which gives you that pinched look. There are a number of ways to treat this, some more invasive than others. Number one is nature and massage and time. At three months, you are still in the early phase of recovery. There is every chance that this scar will soften over the next 3-6 months. The question is whether softening will improve the contour and reduce the gather. Without meeting you face to face and assessing the quality and rigidness of the scar this is impossible to comment upon. The next option may be to inject some fat under the scar to allow it to be more mobile and natural. This is a low risk procedure and may help the tethering improve significantly. The third option is to undergo a revision to dissect beyond the scar combined with some fat transfer to re suspend the neck skin less adherently. This is of course another operation under general anesthetic and so carries the most risk, not least of all, the same thing happening again. It might be worth trying these three techniques in turn and giving each a chance before moving on to the next.Hope that helpsAdam Goodwin
