Beverly Hills cosmetic plastic surgeon can often improve the appearance of a scar, through surgical procedures known as scar revisions. Scars are the unfortunate result of injury to the skin. Whether scars are caused by minor injury, chronic skin conditions, surgical incisions, burns, or major trauma, Dr. Calvert can help.
What is scar revision?
Many types of injuries and surgeries can leave long lasting scars on the body. These scars can be the cause of emotional distress. If you are looking to reduce the visibility of scars on your skin, you may want to consider a scar revision procedure.
You may want scar revision if you:
- Are bothered by a scar anywhere on your body
- Have raised or widened scars
- Have scars that cause itching or pain
- Do not have active acne or other skin diseases in the area to be treated
The Beverly Hills Scar Revision Procedure:
There are several ways to approach scar revision. Typically, scar revision involves excision of the existing scars and careful post-procedure care of the new incision lines.
Recovery from scar revision depends on the type of scar revision treatment as well as the length and size of the scar being treated.
