Scars are the visible outcome of a healed wound. How they develop can be unpredictable, and they are unavoidable after surgery or a serious injury. Some scars are more noticeable because of their location, shape, or size, particularly when on the face. Dr. Sulyman-Scott at That Face performs advanced scar revision surgery to dramatically reduce the visibility of a facial scar.
How Are Visible Scars Treated?
The overall goal of scar revision is to make the scar as invisible and smooth as possible. Like everything Dr. Sulyman-Scott does, your procedure will be tailored to ensure the best outcome. Some scars can be improved by topical treatments, dermal fillers, and injectables or with laser resurfacing and dermabrasion. Some scars like hypertrophic scars and keloids may be helped with injections and medications, potentially followed by surgery to create smaller, less visible scars.
