Best Candidates

You are an ideal candidate for scar revision surgery if you:

  • Have an unwanted scar from a traumatic accident
  • Have undergone a surgery that left behind a scar
  • Feel self-conscious about your scar
  • Do not have acne or any other skin disease around the scar
  • Do not smoke and are in good health

What To Expect

Prior to the procedure, you will undergo a one-on-one consultation with your doctor to determine the best course of treatment. During this time, your doctor will also create a personalized treatment plan that addresses all your cosmetic goals and concerns. There are several techniques used for scar revision and typically, treatment plans utilize a combination of the following methods:

  • Surface Treatments are used to reduce the physical appearance of scaring, which helps to reduce pigment discoloration and smooth rough skin texture. Treatments vary from chemical peels, light therapy, and skin bleaching.
  • Skin Grafting is a more advanced method that is commonly used for more severe scarring. Typically, skin tissue is taken from the thigh and applied to the scarred region to diminish its appearance.
  • Injectable Treatments are frequently used for scars that have a sunken or intended appearance. This method produces long-lasting results but will need to be repeated to maintain a smooth appearance.
  • Topical Treatments are used to treat minor surface scars and commonly include gels, lotions, and compression tapes.

Other Considerations

Since treatment is dependent on the size, shape, and severity of the scarring, results and recovery will vary. However, it is common for patients to experience swelling or minor discomfort for the first few weeks following surgery. During this time, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun and from physical activities that may potentially cause irritation to the wound site. It’s also important to follow all aftercare instructions provided by your doctor. Optimal results may take 6 – 12 months to become visible, but will produce long-lasting outcomes.
