WHY SCAR REVISION
Injuries, birth defects, or previous surgeries can all leave unsightly, embarrassing scars that rarely go away on their own. A scar revision performed by a board-certified physician at Miami Valley Plastic Surgeons can help men and women in Dayton, Centerville, Kettering, Huber Heights, and the surrounding areas in Ohio eliminate or reduce the appearance of scars.
Scar revision refers to any procedure that reduces or eliminates scars. Although scars are not harmful, many people wish to get rid of them because they are unsightly, painful, or rub against clothing.
A scar revision may be performed using one or more of the following:
--Surgical removal of the old scar (excision)
--A skin graft to cover the scar
People most often desire a scar revision to improve their self-esteem, but this procedure can also eliminate the need for at-home treatments and could make it more comfortable for people to wear certain types of clothing.
Nearly anyone can benefit from a scar revision. During your consultation, we will discuss the various scar revision methods with you to determine which one might work best in your circumstances.
It will take some time for your skin to heal following a laser treatment, excision, or skin graft. Your skin may feel dry, itchy, and more sensitive than normal during this time. Keeping your skin well moisturized with an allergy-free lotion will alleviate discomfort and help speed healing.
It normally takes several weeks for your scar to be completely eliminated, and you will notice gradual results over time rather than seeing them all at once.
