Scar help

Postby crazyjelly » Wed, 05 May 2010 10:06 pm

I did double eyelid surgery during december and now i have thick pink scars..

i went back to him twice but his advice was "come back to me in few months time"thats all.

i asked him need to apply anything or not but he said no need.

i feel I NEED to do something about it.

it's quite unsightly and the scar is curved out of my both eyes (if u get what i mean it's like when u draw eyeliner you point out the ends) the scar is not within the eyelid but also out of the crease... now it leaves me with a thick and pink ridge. I have seen people's picture with eyelid surgery and they don't end with a line like that.

these months family and friends noticed my eyes and they know i confirmed did something to my eyes. my confidence has been affected.
what should i do..................

Will it be permanently on me? Will it fade? Should I fix it again? -confused ger... :(

hello crazyjelly,
oh dear! that is so upsetting, at the moment i am visiting a doctor but not so sure if she can help you with that.let me ask her and get back to you for more info okay. at the moment what i can advise you, is to cover it up first with a good foundation and apply an eye shadows on it ( if your doctor told you its safe to put anything on the concern area) so that it won't be that visible. hope it helps you temporarily.

There is a skin medica TNS product that promotes scar healing. I believe you can get it online.

Hope this help.

because i only trust the doctor in there..i did went to few doctors in singapore but it seems that they just charge me for some procedures that doesn't really work.can anyone tell me which place in singapore won't charge you for consultation everytime you visit and ask simple things? if im not confident with this clinic why would i refer to people which i know won't help.anyway it is still the person's choice if they will try or not. so upto you all :)

Hi crazyjelly

Sorry to hear about your scars. Did your doctor advise that you may scar? Or did he ask you whether you had any other scars?

I had a melanoma removed from inside my thigh about a year and a half ago (in Sydney). I don't scar very well so my scar, which is about 6cm long, turned into a keloid. This meant it became raised and red and started to spread at the sides. You probably don't have a keloid but there are less severe forms of a keloid. I had cortison injections to flatten it and then had a special laser to take the redness out. It's now flat and pale but maybe about 1cm wide. This was all done by my dermatololgist and a nurse trained in this laser.

As asians are very prone to keloids, Singapore is probably a good place to be to get someone to look at it. Could you try a dermatologist at the National Skin Centre? They may even just prescribe a cortisone cream which might help the scars to settle down a bit.

Hope this helps. :)

hi there

Doctor didnt seemed to comment much and just kept pushing the follow up date... I already have not much hope in going back to him already....
Okay, noted about ur experience... Will consult another aesthetic doctor.
Thanks.

Hi I suggest considering laser treatment to minimise the appearance of the scar, eg. Fraxel. You can consult a plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
In the meantime, daily use of a silicone based cream such as dermatix or kelocorte will help.

Hello Crazyjelly,

This is really frustrating when someone has a scar which is much visible and I think it can be removed if you go for trans-conjunctival blepharoplasty its more effective then going for any other method of eyelid surgery. This surgery helps in removing fats from the lower eyelid. You may try to have a surgery may be accomplished with the laser or any other cutting tool. It supports the orbicularis muscle and canthal tendon tightens it up with the same skin incision.

The doctor which was treating you might not been having much experienced as it seems though..
Although I will recommend you to visit Dr Andrew Tay clinic which is in Orchard Road you may try to have an appointment by calling to his clinic Pacific Healthcare Specialist Centre at 65 6883 6979

Hi CrazyJelly,

Do you mind telling me which doctor that did your eye? I recommend you can consult doctor on Cosmolan? hope i spelled correctly. It actually helps to flatten and smoothen the scar...As I did my double eyelid as well and left bad scarring too... i am looking to do a revision soon. hopefully this time round will be the right doctor to do it for me..
