- "There's no such thing as scarless surgery." This is something we rattle off in clinic to help people understand that even simple procedures have consequences and permanent reminders. Patients often have the misconception that because they've come to see a #plasticsurgeon they won't have a #scar
I often discuss the scar maturation process with patients prior to #surgery, 1 week post op, and then finally at 6 weeks post op when scars tend to look the worst (most red, swollen, and pronounced). This can be a frustrating time, but reassurance can be a strong #medicine.
This #patient suffered severe through and through facial lacerations after a #motorcycleaccident. There were multiple dental injuries and intraoral lacerations as well. Yes, that is a tooth in the initial photos. I took her to surgery to check for facial nerve injury, which luckily, no nerves were injured.
She was initially very frustrated about the appearance of her scars at 1 week, but by 6 weeks post op things were improving. She returned this week 4 months out and continued to improve.
Scars from #trauma can be visual reminders of the accident itself and examples like this can help to illustrate how well things can improve with patience and time. Rushing into scar revision would've been a huge mistake and resulted in further deformity.
