Scar revision is a plastic surgery performed to improve the condition or appearance of a scar anywhere on the face or body. Discoloration, surface irregularities, and other more subtle scar characteristics can be cosmetically improved by surgical scar revision or other treatments recommended by Dr. Firouz. These types of scars do not impair function or cause physical discomfort and include acne scars as well as scars resulting from minor injury and prior surgical incisions.
The degree of improvement scar revision can achieve depends greatly on the severity of scarring, and the scar type, size and location. In some cases, a single technique may provide significant improvement. However, Dr. Firouz may recommend a combination of scar revision techniques to achieve optimal results such as topical treatments, injectable treatments, surface treatments, and excisions.
Scar Revision Recovery
Initial wound healing may take 1 to 2 weeks at which time you will follow up with Dr. Firouz and have any sutures removed, if necessary. Healing will continue for the several weeks. As the new scar heals, it will ideally, slowly refine and fade.
