Scar Revision Surgery is performed by Dr. Almonte to minimize the scars that occur after surgery or injury. The goal is to render a new scar that blends with the surrounding skin tone and texture. Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Even a wound that heals well can result in a scar that affects your appearance. Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location.
Your Treatment Options may vary Based on the type and Degree of Scarring and Can Include:
- Simple topical treatments, such as Mederma or bioCorneum+
- Injections such as corticosteroids (Kenalog)
- Surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure
Although scar revision can provide a more pleasing cosmetic result or improve a scar that has healed poorly, a scar cannot be completely erased. A thorough evaluation by Dr. Almonte will provide you the option that’s best for you.
