Accutane AFTER Surgery

Recommended Posts

I hear all the time about waiting 6 months to have any procedures after accutane, but never the opposite. Thus, I am curious to know how long you should wait?

In my case, I had a torn pectoral repaired on 12/16/2009. Unfortunately my skin has turned to crap in the last few months, and I am anxious to do another round of accutane. However, I have no idea how long I will have to wait? I'm afraid if I start too soon my surgical scars will be more apparent in years to come.

I saw this yesterday and was hoping someone could give you an answer. :(

Did your surgeon give you any indication on how long your incision would take to heal? Not just on the outside, but on the inside, too. You might be able to talk to someone at the hospital you had the surgery at in order to find out a rough estimate.

Good luck!
