Find Relief from Visible Scarring With Scar Revision

The goal of a scar revision is to minimize your scar so it will be less conspicuous and blend in with your surrounding skin, enabling you to enjoy more freedom with the outfits you choose and feel more confident when visiting the beach. Some scars can even limit function and cause pain, making scar revision surgery a great way to enhance your appearance and your quality of life at the same time.

Scars are the visual sign that a wound has healed, and poor healing can contribute to unsightly scars that are depressed, raised, or different in color or texture from your surrounding healthy tissue. Acne scars can pose a particular challenge as they are usually present on regions of the face or body and often require a comprehensive approach to treat, including controlling any active acne symptoms.

Scar revision can be used to treat a number of scar types and can address the presence of hypertrophic scars, which are thick clusters of scar tissue; keloid scars that can be painful and itchy; and contractures that restrict movement and are often the result of a burn.

Our Surgical Approach to Scar Revision

Dr. Cho will recommend an approach by examining your scar and its location along with other factors. Sometimes a single scar revision technique will provide the significant improvement you seek, and other times Dr. Cho might recommend a combination of techniques in order to achieve the best results. Here at Integrated Aesthetics, we’ll build a treatment plan that draws from more than 60 procedural options, and we often adopt a multi-modal approach to create results that truly thrill our patients.

Surface treatments are commonly used for the cosmetic improvement of scars. Techniques like dermabrasion, laser or light therapy, chemical peel solutions, or skin-bleaching agents might be used. For deeper scars, an incision may be necessary to remove the old scar surgically. When you visit us for your consultation, Dr. Young Cho will work with you to help you learn about the solution that is best for you and your particular scar. He’ll explain the procedure in detail, going over everything you need to know and giving you precise aftercare instructions.

Recovery After Scar Revision

Your care after a scar revision varies depending on the approach Dr. Cho uses, and he’ll be sure to give you clear instructions before the day of your procedure. After more extensive surgeries like skin grafts and flaps, you may have an overnight stay. Minor surgeries require pain medication, rest, and wound and bandage care. The initial recovery after surgery is one to two weeks, and your scar will continue to heal and diminish for up to a year.
