What Is Scar Revision?
Scar revision refers to a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance and function of a scar on the skin. This type of surgery is typically performed by a plastic surgeon or dermatologist to minimize scars that develop after an injury or from surgery, remove raised scars, or reduce contractures that limit mobility. There are many different types of scar revision surgery depending on the severity and location of the scar.
What Can Impact the Results of Scar Revision?
There are several factors that can affect the results of a scar revision procedure. These include things like genetics, previous injuries or surgeries, age, weight gain or loss, and general health conditions. Scar revision may not always be successful in improving the appearance of your scar, and it may not eliminate pain or other symptoms associated with your scar. When you talk to your provider at The Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery, it is vital that you ask questions about this procedure to ensure you are a proper candidate.
