Scar Revision


Scar Revision Surgery

Scars can often serve as a constant reminder of past traumas or surgeries, potentially impacting the quality of life significantly. Fortunately, through the development of advanced surgical techniques and approaches, we now have effective ways to minimize the appearance of scars and even render them nearly invisible. Scar revision is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to improve or reduce the appearance of scars, as well as restore function and correct skin changes (disfigurement) caused by an injury, wound, or previous surgery.
What is a Scar Revision?
Scar revision is a broad term that encompasses several techniques designed to make a scar less visible. These techniques may involve topical treatments, minimally invasive procedures, surgical revision with advanced wound closure techniques, or a combination thereof. The goal of the procedure is not to completely remove the scar – this is impossible – but to make it less noticeable and more compatible with the surrounding skin tone and texture.
Choosing the Correct Procedure

Given the wide variety of potential scar characteristics, the choice of procedure is highly customized to the patient's needs. 

  • Surgical revision is typically reserved for prominent, deep, or particularly noticeable scars, involving the removal of the scar tissue followed by careful wound closure. 
  • Other treatment options may include laser therapy, chemical peels, and prescription creams, gels, and tapes. 

Regardless of the scar revision procedure that is best for you, Dr. Hayes’ approach is always tailored with a focus on achieving the best possible aesthetic outcome for individual patients.
