Scar Revision Cosmetic Surgery at Beverly Hills Body

At Beverly Hills Body , a  scar revision is a cosmetic procedure performed on a scar to alter the appearance of the scar. Although it is impossible to completely remove a scar, scar revision surgery can help make the scar less obvious and possibly unnoticeable. Scar revision is a procedure that is utilized to reduce the size and overall appearance of scar tissue. The visibility of the scar following the surgery depends upon the size of the scar, the depth of the original wound, the thickness of the patient's skin, the direction of the scar and the color of the patient's skin.

Z-Plasty and W-Plasty Scar Revision Surgery

A Z-plasty scar revision  is a type of procedure that is used to revise a scar by using a Z-shaped incision to help decrease the amount of contractures of the surrounding skin. It also may attempt to relocate the scar so that the edges of the scar look more like the normal lines and creases of the skin. Small stitches may be used to help hold the skin in place. W-plasty scar revision corrects depressed or elevated scars.

Scar Revision Surgery Recovery

As with all surgeries, it is important to follow all instructions to help maximize scar revision surgery recovery and healing. Our Los Angeles area  cosmetic surgeon will advise you on all activity restrictions, depending on the type of surgery that was performed. Scars cannot be removed completely. Many factors will be involved in the degree of healing of your particular scar, with some scars taking more than a year to show improvement in appearance following surgery.

The only way to know if scar revision surgery can achieve the outcome you want is to consult with our cosmetic surgeon  Dr. Ellenbogen. We can review your goals and present your scar revision options.
