cortisone shots to kill lumps from scar excision surgery

Recommended Posts

i had scar excision to get rid of a depressed scar. what i have now is smooth skin but theres a border of lumpiness around the new scar on the top and bottom. I asked the plastic suregon if he could laser or use dermabrqasion on it..to smooth and flatten it down. he said, no, the skin will just come back. he ended up giving me a cortisone shot in the lumps. he said that could maybe shrink the collagen so itll look flatter. my follow up is in 2 months. are the shots the only solution? i dont liek them, they create an illusion of a new indent. my skin looks like the overhead view of a roofless stadium. i need to knock the walls down, you know? ....he doesnt want to do excision again because it would bring my eyebrows too close together . what else can i do if cortisone fails.. i thought dermabrasion was for this stuff??
