Is there anything that can be done to minimize the scar?

Question:
Since my revision rhinoplasty, I’m very happy with the results except for an indented scar on my columella. Surgery was a year ago. Is there anything that can be done to minimize the scar?

Answer:
It is very difficult to answer this question without being able to visualize the scar. One option may be scar revision to excise the “indented” area and realign the skin edges. Another option may be laser resurfacing or dermabrasion depending on the appearance of the scar itself. The best way to know what your options are is to consult with your surgeon. After a thorough physical exam, he/she should be able to discuss your options with you.
