Scar Revision

Scar Revision

A scar revision is a procedure that is usually performed when a scar has been present for at least one year, as this is the approximate time it takes for the scar to mature. It involves assessing the scar and determining how to best improve the aesthetic appearance of the scar.

Candidates for a scar revision are patients who are unhappy with the appearance of a scar from trauma, sun exposure, or past surgeries.

Scar revision may be done in the office with local anesthetic.
