I had a BCC removed from the side of my nose 2 months ago. The scar is from the corner of my eye almost to the top of my lip about 7-8 cm. The scar flap is perfect but the peripheral area is a problem. I have been left with a deep crease down my laugh line. From the corner of my nose to my mouth there is 1.5cm ridge where the internal stitches were and a 1cm depression at the end that creates the crease and also wrinkle lines next to it. I assume the wrinkles were caused by pulling the flap closure. I also have little lumps in the corner of my nose, suture lumps I assume. My nose is also slightly crooked now. Has anyone else had this problem and did it go away. The crease makes one side of my face look older than the other. I am 50 something could my age be a contributing factor. I am very depressed with the outcome. I am not keloid.
