Scar Revision

Whenever skin is broken by accident, scar tissue will form as the skin heals.  The size, dept and location of the wound, a person’s age, and heredity and skin characteristics, including color or pigmentation may all contribute to the amount of scarring.  Modern surgical techniques have reduced the incidence of unsightly surgical scars and have increased the possibility of treatment.

Scars may have symptoms such as itching and tenderness that can be treated successfully by applying a cream or steroids.  A scar that initially is large and unsightly may with time become less noticeable.  For these reasons, surgery to treat a scar usually should not be undertaken until several months, or even a year or longer, after a wound has healed.
