Thanks for choosing HCM.,
Cut mark on the topleft lips ....ATROPHIC SCAR...,
It is due to fibroisis...till child hood means...Total alighnment could be changed..,

Hi Rohit

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

The cut mark on your face could be a scar that developed due to injury.Scars can be removed by surgical procedure though other means are not so effective in old scars.
I advise you to visit a Plastic surgeon and after careful examination the procedure needed to be opted and the extent of scar removable can be discussed.You can search for a Plastic surgeon in our Experts list near your location.

Take care.

Hi!Rohit,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Rohit , treatment depends upon the type of the scar.If it is depressed scar then you have two basic option : one is LASER & the other is FILLER .You may require couple of sessions of laser to improve your scar.It may not give you 100% result ,but definetly a good improvement .In fact I should tell you that no procedure can give you 100% result.In fillers ,we use injections of collagen to fill up the depressed skin.But this would be temporary result ,as it desolves in 6-8 months time ,and you would require a second shot again.
If the scar is raised then you can go for steroid injection over the lesion to soften it .
You can also go for the surgical excession (if there is no keloidal tendency) .But surgical excession would again lead to a linear scar (may be a bit better looking),as one needs to suture the scar again .
A laser (co2 laser or a pulse dye laser ) can also be used to depress a raised scar .
Some times a combination treatment is required.

You should consult a plastic surgeon or a dermatologist who have facilities of different lasers in their clinic.
If you can tell me where you belong to then probably I can suggest you a good clinic.

regards,
Dr.chawda

I was diagnosed with breast cancer last month and decided to have a bilateral mastectomy though the cancer was in my right breast. I was born with a deformed left hand but never really diagnosed for anyjthing. After my mastectomy the plastic surgeon told me that I have Polands Syndrome because I didn't have my left pectoral muscle although I have a breast a bit smaller than my right and that also explained my webbed left handfingers. I also have symptoms of horners syndrome on the left side of my face, drooping eye lid aand absence of sweat. Do you think the syndromes are all connected?
