How soon can a revision surgery take place if you're not using the same incision site? (Photo)

Based on your photos, it looks like you just need the ends of the incision revised so the skin lays smooth with your arm down. I generally have patients wait at least 6 months after their initial surgery before performing any scar revision. I would definitely recommend following the same incison you currently have rather than adding a vertical incision. Good luck, Dr. Luong
