sunken surgery site
« on: June 19, 2018, 02:06:14 pm »
Hello everyone,  did anyone observe that the surgery site sunk a bit.  It is a bit lower than the surrounding area.  Although I feel no pain.
I am almost 8 months post translab.  Initially it was not that way. I just notice it these couple of months. 
Could that fat that was used shrunk a bit ? Has been wondering  these for sometime.

I have a bit of a dent on that side. I have long hair, do I don’t know exactly what it looks like. I have noticed that my ear on my surgery side is lower now. I had to buy some little silicone tabs for my glasses so that they land straight on my face. Lol.

I'm 18 months post op with continued facial issues and yes a big dent at surgery site. I had CK initially 8 years ago but the tumor contained to grow and ultimately removed. I had straight wavy hair but in the last month or so I now have very very tight curly hair. Anyone else have that problem. Thanks. Joan
