Scar revision surgery aims to minimize the look of existing scars so that they blend in better with the surrounding tissue. With scar revision surgery, advanced wound closure techniques can improve the look of old scars that may be raised, discolored, or unsightly.
Scar revision surgery provides long-lasting results and can usually be completed under local anesthesia.
