I was in a car accident at the age of 4. I had 7 fractures to my skull along with many other injuries. I was very lucky to survive and I was the only survivor. My scars on my forehead are shaped lhe letter y and the bottom goes down across my eyebrow into the top of my eyebrow. Where the scar meets my eyebrow is extremely itchy, I itch it all the time. My eyebrow bone is also different and more protruding. The scar is raised, much wider and very red at the eyebrow ad halfway into my forehead. I have another scar going acrossed my cheek that is more indented. When I was 19 I saw a doctor in NYC that did a lazer on my forehead that burned the scar, It is actually more noticeable and much redder and definitly itchier than ever. He also did a lazer on my cheek that took the red pigment out and left tiny white circles along the scar. I am now 29 and have worn long bangs my whole life. I know I would have been pretty if only I didn’t have these scars on my face and they are a everyday reminder of the tragic accident. I think after I had the procedures at age 19 I just thought there was no hope. Have there been advances in this type of scar revisions? If I did have options what would they be? Also, how much do these type of procedures cost?
I appeciate the help, Nicole
You have obviously been through a lot and going through more procedures should be only done if the procedures are going to actually improve things.
I would be happy to look at your pictures if you want to email a few to me and give you some ideas. Descriptions never as good as a picture.
