It’s possible to minimize a scar or make it less conspicuous whether it’s due to trauma, injury, or medical procedure. With scar management, surgeons can improve the appearance of a scar or minimize its size by using advanced aesthetic and reconstructive techniques. They can help revise your scar or remove it whether they are keloids, contractures, hypertrophic scars, stretch marks or discolorations.
The surgery involves removal of the excess scar tissue, reconstruction of the soft tissues and then reduction of scarring. Surgical intervention can help reduce the size of your scar, reposition it to a less visible area or smooth the outline of the skin to correct dimpled or sunken scars.
