Unsightly scars from severe acne, infection, past surgeries, or injuries can be problematic for patients, especially when they are in highly visible areas of the face and body. Dr. Lisa Hunsicker of Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics is committed to helping patients feel more confident in their skin even after scarring has occurred. She achieves this with surgical scar revision procedures.
What makes a scar noticeable?
Some scars fade away with time, never to be seen again, while others remain on the skin and can become even embarrassing for patients. Some of the characteristics of scars that are treated at our practice include those with:
- Unusual or abnormal directions
- Texture and elevation concerns
- Pigmentation irregularities
- Poor blending with natural skin color
As a result, some patients visit with Dr. Lisa Hunsicker, our board-certified plastic surgeon, to discuss the benefits of surgical scar revision.
What to expect from the scar revision procedure
Not all scars can be easily addressed with a surgical procedure. This is why it is vital for patients to start with a consultation appointment at Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics for an evaluation by our team to decide if scar revision surgery is appropriate. Some scars may not be easily removed but can be made less noticeable, while others can be removed entirely thanks to the skill and expertise of our professional surgeon. Patients may not only require surgery to remove their scar, but they might also benefit from alternative solutions such as cosmetic injectables. Acne scars, or scars that are depressed in the skin, may be easily addressed with routine dermal fillers, which add volume directly to the areas of the concern and smooth the skin. Patients who undergo scar revision surgery will require longer downtime and recovery than those who choose dermal fillers as another solution.
