While scars can never be completed erased, scar removal procedures are meant to minimize their appearance. There are many non-surgical methods used for scar removal, including injectable fillers to fill concave scars, light therapy and lasers, and dermabrasion and chemical peels. For deeper scarring, surgery is needed to remove the old scar. The incision may be closed with either skin grafts or tissue substitutes. In some cases, a tissue expander will be placed below the surface of the scar and slowly filled with a sterile solution. Once the skin has sufficiently been stretched, the expander and scar are removed. The remaining skin is then stretched to cover the open area.
Average Price: $1,525

I got the scar on my right eye from an accident when i was 5 yrs old. It has always bothered me but I never thought there was anything I could do to fix it, until I met Dr. Prichard. He listened to what I wanted and was very confident that he could improve my scar. I am so happy Dr. Prichard was... READ MORE

I have two scars on my forehead I am unhappy with. On the left side of my forehead toward my hairline, I have a indent from an injury as a child. In between my eyebrows I had two chicken pox scars sewn shut in 2009 before my wedding. I had a reaction to the stitch and developed an indent from... READ MORE

About 15 years ago I had my spleen removed through a 6 inch incision in my abdomen. The scar healed TERRIBLY! It became reddened and raised. Dr. Diehl did such a wonderful job revising the scar that now it is hardly noticeable. I have since had additional procedures and couldn't be happier... READ MORE

Dr. Adrian Lo did my Chest Lipo Surgery for Gynecomastia back in 2011, Total I paid was $5490.00 insurance would not cover it.. I'm so Happy today that I had this done. I was very scared and embarrassed as I entered his office, he and his staff made me feel so comfortable as soon as I... READ MORE

I was in a car accident as a child and needed emergency surgery, which left me with quite a big scar that only got worse as I grew up. It caused a huge indent across my stomach which I hated- I'd be paranoid that people could see it through my clothes and it caused a lot of relationship problems... READ MORE

Dr. Janjua saved my face. I was terribly scared in an alarplasty gone wrong by another surgeon on NYC. My face was uneven, botched and scared so bad I had a hard time leaving my house. When I had an initial visit with Dr J we came up with a game plan that he also talked over with colleagues, I... READ MORE

Right after my punch excision my sutures were secured with steri-strip and lots of bandages. Except when I got home I vomited really badly. I guess the procedure upset my stomach. They just used numbing creme during my procedure. My question is could the sutures come undone? I bled a lot through... READ MORE

I had an old scar on my lip. Revision was out of the question. (see my picture). I was looking to camouflage it using tattoo makeup. Instead they offered me a non-surgical procedure. The results were pretty good for three hundred bucks(see my picture). READ MORE

My son was 8 when he got a small prick and some fluid was sitting on the prick, i removed it and put some antiseptic. It healed but he had itching sensation and i observed after 6 months he had elevated region there. I showed to the doctor in Nepal, a general surgeon said it is a kind of benign... READ MORE

When I was younger I had a mole by my nose and my mom told me to get rid of it by placing battery acid. It got rid of the brown color but I formed a scar. It makes me really self couscious about my face because I don't feel pretty. I went to a derma doctor when I was 15 years and he... READ MORE

Oneyear ago I went to see a skin/vein specialist to treat it and he performed 3 laser treatments which further left left red (and raised) scars all around the edges of it. 6 months later he injected Celestone Chronodose (Betamethasone Injection) into the scars on the edges, and I have been...

I had hyperparathyroid surgery over three years ago and ever since I have a 3.5 inch visible scar on my neck. The unfortunate part about it beyond the scar itself is that the surgeon never found the abnormal gland after a seven hour surgery. You can imagine that I was devastated. I have... READ MORE

In 2011 I was involved in a severe auto accident. I had a tracheostomy that was removed and left a severely sunken hole in my neck area, and scars to my face. I researched plastic surgeons myself, and found out that not only was Dr. Smith highly rated by the general public but also my many other... READ MORE

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Emer and his staff. From the moment I met him and his nurse Candice, I felt like I was in good hands. I had come in for a scar revision from another surgery - the previous surgeon had done a terrible job and also removed my stitches too early. This... READ MORE

I went to see Dr. Antunes for a facial laceration. I was very concerned about scarring. He assured me that the scar would be minimal, and proceeded to clean the area and stitch up the wound. I went to see him the following week to have the stitches removed. It has now been 6 months and I can... READ MORE

I was considering a revision upper blepharoplasty but was more concerned about the temple lift scars (all done by a previous surgeon.) Dr. Cohen made it sound like it was no big deal to "revise" the brow lift scars and have hair growing through them. I was really emotional about these scars... READ MORE

Being an x-nurse, I did my homework when it comes to doctors, especially surgeons. From day one, Dr. Stile and his competent staff had a wonderful bedside manner. He is precise, answers questions and actually cares about his patients. Amazing in Las Vegas!!! The procedure I had was to... READ MORE
