Restoring Your Confidence

Scars can develop from various causes, including injuries, trauma, acne, and surgical incisions. In some cases, they can heal in a noticeable or undesirable way, causing pain, limiting mobility, or creating significant disfigurement. Scar revision surgery is a procedure that aims to improve the appearance of scars and the outer layers of skin after surgical procedures. Surface scars occur when skin cells die off and are replaced with scar tissue, which can become too noticeable, particularly with acne scars. This surgery reduces the visibility of scars and restores normal skin appearance.

Dr. Anil Shah Facial Plastic Surgery offers an extensive panel of options for concealing scars with proper surgical techniques, reorientation, laser treatments, and skin resurfacing. We aim to provide personalized treatment plans that address each patient's unique needs and goals. We are committed to providing the highest level of care and support throughout the process, ensuring our patients feel comfortable and confident at every step.

Would I Be a Good Candidate for Scar Revision?

We know that scar revision is a highly personal procedure, with each patient having their own distinct motivations and goals. However, typical patients who opt for the procedure include:

  • Individuals who are bothered by any scars on their body
  • Those who are in good physical health
  • Non-smokers
  • Patients who are optimistic and realistic about their surgery
  • Individuals without active acne or other skin conditions in the affected region

Recovery and Results

Following the scar revision procedure, patients are required to wear compression garments until the incisions heal. It is recommended that patients avoid strenuous activities for at least six weeks after the procedure to prevent complications.

Afterward, regular exercise is encouraged to avoid muscle atrophy. Patients may experience pain and redness at the procedure site during the first few days after surgery. Skin texture and color changes may also be noticeable, typically lasting from one week to two months.

After this time, the skin's healing process begins and becomes smoother and softer. As the new skin grows, the scar gradually fades away. It is important to note that the final results of scar revision may take several months to become visible, and it may even take up to a year for scars to completely disappear.
