It is typical to have remaining scar tissue after a wound has healed, but depending on the healing process, these scars can be highly visible and sometimes disfiguring. At Carolina Plastic Surgery, Dr. Saira Saini can correct visible scarring and restore the appearance of your skin with scar revision surgery.
What is Scar Revision Surgery?
Almost all men and women experience a wound or injury in their lives that results in visible scarring. While some scars are light in color and are easy to conceal, others are dark and highly visible, leading to self-consciousness. Whether a wound has healed poorly or well, it can result in a scar that affects your overall appearance. At Carolina Plastic Surgery, Dr. Saira Saini can perform scar revision to reduce the visibility of raised and prominent scarring.
No two types of scars are like, and during your consultation with Dr. Saini, your individual condition and aesthetic goals will be discussed. The goal of your scar revision procedure will be to minimize the scar so it is more consistent with your existing skin tone and texture, and Dr. Saini performs this procedure with an attention to detail that ensures optimal results you can trust.
Although a scar cannot be completely erased, our scar revision procedures at Carolina Plastic Surgery can help improve the overall appearance of the area and create the best results possible.
The amount of healing necessary from this procedure may vary depending on the extent and the location on the body. Some slight bruising, redness, or swelling from the procedure can be expected, and Dr. Saini will provide any aftercare instructions that may be relevant to your procedure.
The full results of your scar revision surgery may not be evident until the scar fully heals and fades, but most scar revisions are permanent and can be combined with skin rejuvenation treatments for continued results.
