What surgical scar revision techniques do you offer at The Oaks Plastic Surgery in Houston?
The surgical technique that’s best for you will depend on the type and extent of your scarring. Most scar revision surgeries are minor and can even be performed under local anesthesia. Exact techniques vary, but they typically involve carefully removing the scar with as little new trauma to the area as possible.
For major scars that cover larger areas of the body, especially scars from burns or serious injuries, scar revision surgery can sometimes be more extensive. Depending on the severity of your scars, your surgeon may recommend skin grafting. In addition to improving the appearance of your scar, your plastic surgeon will also work to ensure that your surgery improves any pain, discomfort, or decreased mobility caused by your scars.
