A Scar on face after surgery,URGENT!!!
I'm dying to research about a treatment for after skin removal surgery. My husband had two small moles on his right cheek and just simply removed them by his dermatologist. Lucky or unlucky, biopsy found that they were "suspiciou moles which be able to be Melanoma in the future". The doctor told him to take surgery to remove more skin. As he concerned about a scar after surgery, my husband chosen a Cosmetic Surgeon instead of Dermatologist for surgery. The doctor said him there were two (2) methods, which were an excision or curettage(shave removal). Both of them will leave a scar on my husband face, doctor said. My husband wasn't sure which way was better so asked the doctor and was recommended "curettage(shave)" method. After surgery, it has left a 6mmx9mm oval shape scar which is very visible. It's been about 4 weeks after surgery, but my husband has depressed and disappointed by the result. Now, he regrets that he should have taken excision way, not shave removal. Please someone tell me if there is any way to fix this scar? According to the doctor, it might be much better after 6 months. But I just worry about that! Why did he recommend "shave removal"?? Was it a right dicision?? My husband chosen a Cosmetic sergeon because didn't want to get a major scar on his FACE.
Please, please send me any comments about this... Thanx!!
