Everyone’s body heals in a slightly different way, which can lead to unique scarring and marking from injuries and surgeries. Scars of all sizes and placements can be unpleasant and distressing to your body image.
If your scar is a serious concern to you, you may consider a scar revision procedure. Scar revision can improve the appearance of a scar on nearly any part of your body.
If you’re considering a scar revision procedure, here’s what you can expect from the process.
Types of Scar Revision Procedures
There are several scar revision procedures that could be used to provide optimal results for your specific scar type. Scars can be made to appear less conspicuous and can be blended in with the surrounding skin tone and texture, making it virtually impossible for others to notice.
There are several procedures that can be performed for scalp scar revision. The following methods are expertly performed by MAXiM physicians and technicians:
- Scalp micropigmentation to blend in a scar to the surrounding skin and hair
- Scar excision to close and seal the skin around the scar
- Dermabrasion to remove the top layers of the scarred skin, allowing new layer of skin to grow over the area
- Laser scar revision to soften the surface of a scar and stimulate new collagen growth, promoting a natural look and healing process
- Skin grafting to remove a thin layer of skin from another part of your body and apply it to the area where the scar is located, thereby covering and concealing the scar
Surgery to Remove a Scar
If you want to look and feel better about your appearance, scar revision surgery can help. Your first step is a consultation with one of our experienced surgeons. They’ll assess the range and position of your scar and will recommend a plan to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Different areas of the body heal at different paces and in different ways. The various procedures also have their own level of recovery times and expectations.
Be sure to follow the recovery instructions provided by your doctor to avoid complications, expedite your healing process, and achieve your desired results.
Risks of Scar Revision
When performed by an experienced professional like the seasoned practitioners at MAXiM, scar revision surgery is relatively safe. As with most surgeries, some potential risks include infection, bleeding, or the recurrence of the scar.
It’s important to follow any instructions provided by the medical staff before and after your procedure. Also, be sure to communicate any concerns you may have at any point.
