A scar revision is a procedure done on a scar to improve its appearance or restore an issue that a scar had caused. A scar can fade over time and become less noticeable on its own, but for the scars that don’t fade there are a couple of options to make them less visible. Scars can affect your appearance due to their size, shape, location or color. A scar revision will attempt to minimize a scars size, blend in with the surrounding skin tone, and fix any raised or depressed areas.
After a scar revision it is important that the wound properly heals. The amount of improvement during the healing stages will depend on your scars initial location and size as well as your skin type. There is little down time for a scar revision, easing into normal activities at first is recommended.
