Scar Revision Surgery – Reduce the Appearance of Scars
Scar revision is surgery to improve or reduce the appearance of scars so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture. Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. The amount of scarring may be determined by the wound size, depth, and location; the person’s age; heredity; and skin characteristics, including color (pigmentation).
Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location. Treatment options vary from simple topical treatments, minimally invasive procedures, to surgical revision based on the degree and type of scarring.
A scar cannot be completely erased but scar revision can improve a poorly healed scar and result in more pleasing cosmetic appearance.
