Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My best friend recently had a brow lift. And a few days after started having complications. The doctor reopened the scalp and has her now covering this huge wound in her head with bandages, which are not closing up. He keeps saying longer, and now he keeps doing these other treatments to try and save her hair. It is the most horrific sight. I want another opinion to know if this is common today; he told her two to three more weeks.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

I am still determining by looking at the photograph and your history (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity). It looks like she had some infection or skin necrosis following the surgery. The doctor has done right by opening up the area allowing the infection to subside, but it will take time to settle. Since the doctor treating her is the only one who knows entirely about the patient, he should treat her. I know it is a horrific sight, but once it heals, it will look much better. I hope this helps.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
