Although all wounds heal, some leave visible scarring that can affect a person’s self-confidence. Rather than attempt to hide or cover your scars, scar revision surgery at Coastal Dermatology and Plastic Surgery can help you regain confidence in your skin. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out if you are a candidate!
A Safe and Effective Way to Remove Visible Scarring
As a result of prior surgery or injury, many types of scarring can develop on the skin. Scars may be recessed or raised and can be different in texture or color from the healthy tissue surrounding them. There are many creams and over-the-counter solutions that promise to reduce the appearance of scars, but these remedies are often not prescribed by physicians and may only contain small amounts of beneficial ingredients. Surgical scar revision with the trained and skilled physicians at Coastal Dermatology and Plastic Surgery is a more dependable and long-term solution, and our experienced team will make your experience as comfortable as possible.
What Can I Expect During Surgical Scar Revision?
The extent and details of the procedure often depend on the size, shape, location and age of the scar. During your consultation with our team, we will discuss your skin condition, medical history, expectations of the surgery, and more to ensure that you fully understand your procedure and that you receive the best possible outcome. Although some scars cannot be fully erased from the skin, we will work closely with you to give you maximum results with minimal downtime and discomfort. With multiple locations in the Los Alamitos area, scheduling a consultation with our team and starting your journey to healthier skin has never been easier.
What to Expect after Surgical Scar Revision?
Some healing time may be required after your surgical scar revision depending on the extent of the procedure, but prior to your procedure we will outline how much time off of work and normal activities you may need to take. After this procedure, proper healing and skin care is essential for optimal results, so it is important to follow any aftercare instructions or advice given to you by our medical team.
