What is Scar Revision?

A scar can benefit from scar revision surgery to minimise the appearance and make it less conspicuous. The amount of improvement possible will depend on factors such as: severity, size, location, and the kind of scar you have.

How to plan for a scar revision2021-05-28T13:38:20+02:00

Before you make the decision to have a scar revision I will need to assess the scarred area and discuss your expectations.

We will discuss all the options and techniques available and I will recommend the best procedure and what to expect as a result so that you can make an informed decision.

What is the procedure for scar revision?2021-05-28T13:34:31+02:00

During the procedure for scar revision, I may use a single technique or a combination of techniques to get the best results.

Scar revision techniques may include :

  • Fat and stem grafting.
  • Topical treatments using tapes, gels, or external compression.
  • Injectable dermal fillers and steroidal-based compounds.
  • Surface treatments for cosmetic scar reduction, like dermabrasion, laser or light therapy, chemical peels and skin bleaching.
  • Surgical removal of scars, which will require an incision and, in some cases, a layered closure of the incision.
  • Some scars need advanced techniques, which include complex flap closure to reposition the scar.
  • Severe burn scars may require pharmaceutical tissue substitutes.
  • Tissue expansion is sometimes used instead of skin grafts. The stretched skin is used to replace the scarred area.
What to expect after scar revision?2021-05-28T13:31:57+02:00

After scar revision, expect to experience some swelling, discoloration, or discomfort. But, as the new scar heals, this will gradually fade. It may take several months or up to a year to see the final results.

Optimal scar revision results are not always guaranteed.
