Accutane and Surgery! Please help!

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I'm 4 Months into accutane and all of a sudden things seem great!

I was 100% clear last week and just got a small zit near my chin dismorning.. but its so minor...Im very happy hopw its going ..

Anyway my Q realtes to cosmetic surgery.

I was born with a mild constriced ear deformity where one top rim over hangs a bit more than the other etc. Probably no one really notices really but I can't help being self conscious about it. I saw a surgeon last year and he can fix it he says.. I really want to get this done asap.. I will all done with tane in august but it sucks that I read you have to wait atleast 6 months post tane before any surgery! I assume this is because wounds take longer to heal while on tane...

Anyway... Just wondering anyone know how strict this 6 month barrier is? anyone else had surgery soon after accutane? Any problems arise? How long did you wait?

Please let me know!

The reason why is because your skin is still very sensitive. If the surgeon knows he will not likely let you have the surgery done before six months, unless of course he does not care about the outcome and wants your money. You should wait the six months.

good luck
