If you feel self-conscious about a scar, revision surgery before and after photos on LocateADoc.com can help you get a sense of what can be achieved with the surgery. While complete scar removal can rarely be achieved, our site hosts profiles of scar revision doctors that can help diminish the look of scars.
Depending on the severity of the scarring, there are a few ways that they can be effectively treated. Some topical treatments work to smooth out the skin and even out tone. Laser treatments and microdermabrasion can remove the scarred skin tissue and encourage new skin growth. There are also surgical revision options to reduce the size of a large scar.
There are a few risks associated with these options. In rare cases, topical treatments can cause allergic reactions. Minimally invasive procedures are inappropriate for patients with chronic skin problems or active skin diseases. With surgery, there is risk for excessive bleeding, swelling, and scarring.
What should I do before scar revision surgery?
- Speak with your dermatologist about your overall skin health
- Ideal candidates lead healthy, active lifestyles and are non-smokers
- If you opt for surgery, discuss any medications or current health conditions with your doctor
We hope that our scar revision surgery before and after photos can help you understand your options. When you are ready to consult with a certified professional, browse LocateADoc.com profiles to find a preferred provider in your area.
