Facelift surgical scars
At this point, I would suggest a combination of Plato's Scar Serum and Melarase creams to help your scars. Lasers may also help in the future.

Surgical scar improvement
Yes there are a few options to improve the appearance of your scars. What I find to be the safest and best method is with laser resurfacing, invented by dermatologists. A series of treatments can make the scars less noticeable. I would recommend seeing a dermatologist with expertise and advanced training in lasers. Surgical scar revision is another option but often times comes with the same risks and may heal the same or worse than in the original surgery.
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may benefit from a scar revision. The most important aspect is
to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation
with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in
Best wishes and good luck.
