    Subcision after care to prevent hematoma/lumps

    @beautifulambition thank you so much for your input. I'm pretty sure that was the last subcision for me. Not sure I could expect more evenness if I do more anyway. I will continue treating scars but will limit it to external methods, except for the fillers which at this point I think I don't have an option but to do. I believe my acne scars are shallow enough where I can now "resurface the road" I'm sure this has been addressed before but any significance in the order of filler/micro

    Lump on on the right side of my cheek is mostly visible when I smile. Looks like a mini cheek on my cheek. Not flattering This was also taken on day 12.

    @beautifulambition that makes more sense.. if they have the ultrasound machine at the place, they can see in real time what's going on. I do know that the lump has changed since the last subcision procedure on my left cheek. It is definitely much more tender & more firm to where if I accidentally touch it it's super painful. With this said and the numbness I'm experiencing right over the area I am sure the scar tissue or whatever the lump is made of has enwrapped a nerve.

    I will ask if this is something the doctor would order for me. I just wonder how the info would change or help guide tx. Any idea? I'll ask during the follow up and update. Thanks!

    My first follow up will be on the 16th, I'm thinking to just go with the dilute steroid (though even this results in atrophy in surrounding areas) but I would rather do weekly saline flushes to reverse the atrophy from the steroid then endure the painful lump. Dr. Lim had mentioned in response to another physician's question regarding a persistent lump that he would recommend doing an ultrasound. Dr. Rahimi from LA also mentioned this. Anyone know what the point of the ultrasound would be?

    @FredM thank you for sharing those links, that is very helpful information! Luckily I don't have the other systemic factors that could lead to impaired wound healing but I'm sure topical vitamin k would still be helpful in any case. I have been taking vit K2 internally though not regularly. Since the skin is pretty much healed, I'm not sure if I can get any added benefit from the topical K at this point but I would give it a try. Just an update, I haven't had any new lumps aside from the 2

    Day 3 s/p subcision: general swelling is virtually gone now. @beautifulambition Do you think switching to a warm compresses and massage would be OK at this point? I took a few pictures but the lighting isn't too great but you can see one of the lumps more clearly than the other if it helps. I can't tell that I got new lumps at this time, although there is maybe some swelling around the initial lumps.

    Thank you both for your replies, my post did go through after all! As for the swelling the MA did give me a kenalog 10 injection in my bum, I was very reluctant but after I saw my face I said no way can I allow that much swelling to be present longer than it needs to be.. I was afraid of the adverse affects of that much swelling. Swelling is much better now. I have been using cold compresses and applying light to moderate pressure as I press it on to my face in hopes of prevention. B
  9. Hello Beautiful community. I am very amazed by the wealth of knowledge some of you have shared on this board. I am hoping some of you subcision experts can help me on my case... If you just bear with me till the end of my question I am less than 24 hours into my fourth subcision procedure. I also had microneedling + cross & PRF. First three was done using nokor needle + microneedling & cross only. The one prior to this subcision one was done November 2017. Although ov
