Scar Revision

Scar Revision on the Face – While no scar can be removed completely, cosmetic or plastic surgeons can frequently enhance the look, allowing it to be less obvious through the injection or application of particular steroid medications or through surgical procedures called scar revisions. Z-plasty is a precise technique used to reposition a scar so it more closely contours with the natural lines and creases of the skin, where it’s going to be less visible. Additionally, it can minimize the strain caused by contracture. Not every scar lends itself to Z-plasty, however, and it also needs an experienced cosmetic surgeon to make such judgments. Skin grafts and flaps will be more intricate kinds of scar surgery. Your surgeon decides the necessity for these.
