Hi--and we can continue after this if you'd like but I would suggest laser therapy or revision/reconstructive therapy with a plastic surgeon.

Ok thanks , how does the laser therapy work?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
It's called laser resurfacing and it goes deeper than microdermabrasion to soften and smooth the subcutaneous tissue. It really is very effective but it may take several treatments

Thank you is it painful and expensive? Which would be more cost effective the laser or surgery?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
Not painful at all and about a couple of hundred dollars depending on how many treatments and definitely much cheaper than surgery
