Don'tFutzWithTheFace: I've seen so many disasters or near-disasters with this topic that I urge you to see a really knowledgeable specialist in the field of dermatology or plastic surgery. Do a lot of research and get a few opinions. If you can't afford to do that, then it won't be worth doing something else. There are commercial products out there that might help but I'd get a professional opinion about them.
