Recovery after forehead scar revision
Surgical scar revision on the forehead is common. I have my patients apply steri strips for extended periods of time after the surgery to prevent dehiscence of the scar.
Treatment after surgery
I ask my patients to apply bacitracin ointment to the sutures while they are in. They need to avoid sunlight for months
