Surgeon Questions Facial Injuries And Disorders

Will my facial surgery scars always remain?

I have a lot of marks all over my face due to a facial surgery I went through after a car accident. Will these marks remain forever?

Any scar in any location will always remain to some degree. There are ways to decrease the visibility of a scar. If the surgeon places the incision appropriately it will not be easily seen. In addition to some make up can be helpful.
There are things that you can get that will help to make the scars not be so bad. You need to ask your local Rx.
Scars can heal over a period of 6-9 months. Facial scars tend to heal a little better due to better blood supply on the face. There is no way to make scars go away completely. If you are unhappy with your appearance, you may choose to see a plastic surgeon about other reconstructive options once all the wounds have healed completely.
