Plastic surgery can diminish the appearance of unsightly scars. It is important to remember that most wounds, repaired lacerations or closure of surgical incisions will result in scarring. In most cases, the laceration heals so that the scar is hidden or fades over time. However, in some cases, the healing process or location of the laceration can lead to noticeable, unsightly scarring. Scar revision can improve skin’s condition or appearance.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Larson and his team will evaluate your scar to determine the appropriate techniques for refining your scar. In some cases, a single treatment may provide significant improvement. The degree of improvement that can be achieved depends on the type, size, location and severity of the scarring. Your surgery goals and expectations will be addressed during your initial consultation.
