Thank you for your help Doctor….
Yes I already saw Dr Silver and he told me that is good idea to put steroid in the scar tissue in the mentolabial sulcus to help shrink the tissue….I hope this helps me, because if this part goes down and I have the “S” form , the chin will look good, and can be easier for me to wait more time until see if all scar tissue improve.
These are the last questions :
-I don’t Know if the steroid work enough to have a normal “S” Form because the skin in the mentolabial sulcus is normaly very thin.
Can the steroid relax the scar tissue until it is thin again?
-In case the steroid is not working,is the operation to remove the scar tissue is easy and successful?
Thank you for you help ..you don”t Know how much you are helping me.
Thank you for this place in your website and your opinion is very important to me.
Steroid injection is usually done multiple times. Some patients need 2-3 injections and some need 10-15 injections. There are also different strengths of steroids from K10 to K40 (40 is stronger).
The ONLY way to tell if the steroid injections will work is to do them. There is no guarantee that it works but usually it helps.
Removal of the scar tissue should not be that difficult around the chin.
Your best bet is to stay under the care of a good plastic surgeon and take it a day at a time. If there is no nerve damage or infection then the scar tissue can be reduced relatively easily and your chin should improve. Again, getting your “old chin” back is impossible but you should expect a nice reasonable improvement.
