Scar Revision

Scar revision can diminish the appearance of unseemly scars. Dr. Cho will consult with you to find out your goals, determine the right treatment plan and assess whether you are a good candidate for the procedure. You may be asked to adjust your medications and refrain from smoking in advance of the surgery.

Anesthesia: Local, General or IV Sedation

The goal of a scar revision is to minimize your scar so it will be less conspicuous and blend in with the surrounding skin. Some scars may also limit function and cause pain. Scars are the visual sign that a wound has healed, and poor healing can contribute to unsightly scars that are depressed, raised or different in color or texture from your surrounding healthy tissue.

 

Scar revision can be used to treat a number of scar types. The procedure can help hypertrophic scars which are thick clusters of scar tissue; keloid scars that can be painful and itchy; and contractures that restrict movement and are often the result of a burn.

Dr. Cho will recommend an approach by examining your scar and its location along with other factors. Sometimes a single scar revision technique will provide the significant improvement you seek, and other times Dr. Cho might recommend a combination of techniques in order to achieve the best results.
 
Surface treatments are commonly used for cosmetic improvement of scars. Techniques like dermabrasion, laser or light therapy, chemical peel solutions or skin bleaching agents might be used. For deeper scars, an incision may be necessary to remove the old scar surgically.

Your scar revision may involve dermal fillers, dermabrasion to polish the skin, laser or light therapy or chemical peel solutions. Fat grafting may also help with facial scars.

PROS

CONS

  • Your scar will be less noticeable after a scar revision procedure.
  • Your scar will still be present.
  • You will not regain your pre-scar appearance.
