Our facial surgeons offer a wide variety of scar revision procedures to help minimize scarring. Scars can be a result of facial trauma, removal of facial skin lesions leaving a large or widened scar or after facial cosmetic or reconstructive surgery. Scars form as the cut edge of two skin edges heals. Our techniques of scar revision surgery, suturing techniques, dermabrasion and laser resurfacing allows us to minimize the appearance of scars. Scars that have widened as they have healed or heal in a non-ideal orientation can be excised, closed with advanced techniques and resurfaced to minimize the appearance of the scar. You cannot make a scar go away entirely but we have ways to improve the appearance and minimize these problems.
