This usually happens in the early few hours to few days. This may require a visit back to theater.

This usually happens in the first few days. This may need a course of antibiotics.

This may need frequent dressings and would leave a stretched scar. The scar could be revised at a later stage. The common area is the area behind the ear. If this would happen in-front of ear, this may need skin graft.

This usually happens in the area in front of the ear. This may improve on its own or needs skin graft

This should improve on its own in few months time. However, it could be permanent.

This causes asymmetry of the face movements (Muscles). This may improve on it’s own or could need further surgery. Thecommon nerve injury is the Eye brow branch which could lead to droopy eye brow.

Scars which are permanent; red, lumpy or red. No guarantee about the quality of the scar. No control what so ever on the individual body healing.

Sutures; may spontaneously surface to skin and needs removal.

Because we start by asymmetry, so please don’t expect mirror image face . A degree of asymmetry would be expected.
