Although scar revision can provide a more pleasing cosmetic result or improve a scar that has healed poorly, a scar cannot be completely erased.
Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar 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. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Even a wound that heals well can result in a scar that affects your appearance. 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.
Scar revision at RRFP is performed in our surgical suite under local anesthesia. Depending on location of the scar Botox® Cosmetic is injected two weeks prior to the surgery to limit movement while the new incision is healing.
SkinMedica Scar Recovery Gel is often included in all of our surgical procedures to give the patient the best possible outcome for an aesthetic pleasing scar.
