Plastic surgery after Accutane?


I hopefully will finish my accutane course by the end of this year, so around december 11th 2009. After my course is over, I'm planning to get otoplasty ( pinning back my ears, and most likely reducing the size of it.)

Do I have to wait a certain time even after accutane? Because i heard your skin is fragile and still thin, and is prone to scarring etc. But, I'm only doing my ears nothing else.

thanks heaps for the tips :)

Talk to the plastic surgeon in advance to see what he or she says. I had a cyst removed from my scalp last week and the nurse updating my file wanted to make sure I had not been on the medication for at least six months. She said some doctors prefer a year because of the potential for scarring and slow healing rate.
