Endolift Scars

I was treated with chin Liposuction and Endolift in my neck, face and eyes. It has scared me on my neck, cheek, and eyebrow area. What can I do to fix the scars. This happened on Dec. 15. The Dr. I saw in Tijuana will see me - to correct - but what kind of correction is needed, and do I trust the guy who scared me to fix it?

Procedure: Wound Care
Location: Denver, CO

You have several areas that have not healed as yet based on the photos. The first thing you should do is locate a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area for guidance in treating the open wounds. Allow several months for the scars to mature and then formulate a plan for improvement based on the results at that point. Unfortunately you have experienced the problem w Medical Tourism and why it is not recommended.

Dr. John Obi gave you an excellent answer and my answer would be exactly the same.

The size and location of your incisions indicates that your surgeon made poor choices. You should follow Dr. Obi's advice and see a ABPS certified surgeon in the United States. There are good surgeons in your area. Wound care takes weeks and multiple follow-up visits. It would be wise to seek your care locally.

Agree completely with Dr. Obi and others. Please visit an ABPS board certified plastic surgeon in the United States for an opinion.

You need good wound care management.

Best wishes
