Scar Revision

A scar revision is surgery to improve the appearance of scars.

Prominent scars can cause embarrassment and can lower self esteem. Though no scar can be completely removed, a scar revision will make it discreet, so that the chance of someone noticing it is greatly reduced.

There are various forms of scarring that can be of concern:

Hypertrophic scars – are highly visible scars that appear raised and thickened and are red in colour. They are contained by the confines of the original scar.

Keloid scars – have a similar appearance but grow out with the original scar. They tend to occur in darker skinned individuals and in areas such as ears or chest.
