Scar Revision

What is Scar Revision Surgery?

Scar revision is surgery that aims to minimize the look of existing scars so they blend better with the surrounding skin tissue. With a scar revision surgery, advanced wound closure techniques can ameliorate the look of old scars that may be raised, discolored and unsightly.
Scar Revision Surgery

Quick Facts

  • Long-lasting results
  • Local anesthesia

Am I a Candidate?

Scar revision may be a good option for you if you:

  • have an unsightly scar anywhere on your body
  • are physically healthy
  • do not smoke
  • do not have active acne or other skin diseases in the area that needs treatment


  • The surgeon shall make an incision to surgically remove the old scar
  • Some scars will require layered closure, meaning that the scar extends down many tissue layers and needs gradual suturing on different layers of skin, particularly in areas of the body where there is frequent movement of the skin.
  • Complex flap closure or tissue substitutes/tissue expansion may be necessary


Localized swelling, discoloration or discomfort should subside within two weeks

The new incision wound will take a few weeks to fade and refine.  Full healing and fading may take up to six months.
