I have keloid scars from my facelift three years ago. Can they be fixed?
Keloid scars from a facelift are a difficult yet, treatable problem. My suspicion is that the tension on the facelift flap was too great at the incision sites resulting in keloid formation. After three years your surgeon can excise the keloids and elevate the facial skin to create a flap of skin that can be closed without tension to at the incision sites. Close observation post operatively will allow your surgeon to know when and if steroid injections to the facelift incisions will be necessary to prevent reformation of the keloids.
