Scar Tissue after a Facelift
1) Scar Tissue
2) Recurrent neck banding
3) Uneven or over aggressive removal of fat in the neck
4) Uneven swelling
Each of these causes will have a different treatment. For scar tissue, I would recommend massage, injection with 5-Fluorouracil, and time (safer than cortisone in my opinion). If the area is recurrent neck banding, you would need an additional touch up procedure. Uneven swelling will improve with massage and time.
The hardest problem to fix is over aggressive or uneven removal of fat. I find that cause difficult to treat.
I would continue to try conservative and non-surgical treatments for at least 1 year after your surgery. Most of these issues will resolve with time.
I hope this helps.
