Fall on glass with slash on chin. Advised 3m medical tape. Will it leave a scar? Plastic surgeon? - Online Doctor Chats
I wanted to speak with a Plastic surgon
I am a General Physician, I believe I can help you within my expertise and If required I shall recommend a specialist.
sure then, thank you so much
my daughter Kashish who is 2 yrs old had fall
i am just pasting you the Dr. remarks for your reference
Provisional Diagnosis: h/o fall onto a glass object and injuring her right cheek at around 6:00pm in the evening, EXPLORTION AND NERVE REPAIR+SKIN CLOSURING FIR EXPLORTION AND NERVE REPAIR+SKIN CLOSURING
Dr. i am now worried abt her scar on the chin
Was the surgery done by a plastic surgeon?
yes very much
I don't think that you have to worry much about the scar.
The plastic surgeon would have taken maximum care to prevent the scar formation.
he is asking us to use 3m tape and nothing has been advised
for any cream or anyother advice
That is fine. Scar formation mainly depends on the suturing procedure.
he said he has also put micro suter were every required
There is no cream that prevents scar formation.
but i can see the cut very clearly on her check
and what about consulting dermatolgist
The XXXXXXX disappears only after healing. Until that the cut would be seen.
There is nothing to be done until the wound heals.
are you aware of 3m medical tape?
is it effective
and how wil it help the scar
It is very effective in holding the wound edges together.
It prevents gaping of the wound.
so will that be helpful for her while healing
Surely. It will prevent scarring
any other advice?
on what to do
what abt the Dermotologist
Please wait until the day the surgeon has asked to wait.
Is there any removable sutures?
they have already removed
When was it removed?
there were few micro and few regular suchers
it was removed on 8th Feb
yes its all done from him
So you can continue visiting the dermatologist now.
Let he/she have a look at it.
Once it is examined, you will have a better picture about the treatment.
Hope I had been able to clear your doubts.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
is there a dermatologist i can chat with
No. Specialists does not come on chat. You can post a query to the specialist.
i will do so
thank you so much!
Thanks for consulting me.
Have a nice day.
Bye for now.
same to you to, thank you for your time
