The face and neck are commonly injured areas of the body from either trauma, acne or previous surgeries. Unfortunately, unsightly scars may result due to technique, poor wound healing, infections, hypertrophic scarring or keloids.
What Is Scar Revision Surgery?
Scar revision targets the specific abnormality and aims at improving what can otherwise be a daily reminder of a tragic event or what a person perceives as a disfiguring scar.
Techniques For Scar Revision Surgery
Techniques for improvement vary dramatically from needle subcisions, dermal fillers, dermabrasion, tissue rearrangement, Z-plasty, W-plasty or geometric broken line closure. Each scar is treated individually and management can vary. Procedures can be performed in the office or for more advanced techniques, an operating suite may be utilized.
