Recovery speed depends on a couple of different factors, like the size of the incisions and closing techniques. Dr. Stein uses advanced surgical techniques to not only create small incisions in the first place but also to seal the incisions so that the scars fade faster.
Our skin naturally loses its elasticity as we age. Because of this, we naturally need more time for our skin to recover from the incisions. However, we can use a healthy lifestyle, proper nutrition, and treatment products to offset the influence of age on the scar. As a general rule of thumb, the better you take care of yourself, the faster the scar fades.
What Steps Can I Take for Scar Management?
In your initial consultation, Dr. Stein will identify all the factors that can contribute to the success or failure of your procedure, such as expectations and minimal scarring. In addition to that, he will work closely with you to answer all your questions and doubts. Dr. Stein will also customize a post-surgical scar management plan for you so that you enjoy the most out of your now-rejuvenated face.
