By definition a scar can never be completely erased, but dermatologists and surgeons can often improve their appearance or minimize scarring post-procedure.

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

When I was very young, I was bitten by a dog in the face, close to the corner of my mouth. I was young and very afraid. Two adults had to hold me down while the doctor sewed me up. It was a poor job. Now I'm 64, and I decided to have the scar redone. Now that it is on its way to healing, I... READ MORE

I had emergency small bowel resection in March of 2013, which left a pretty nasty scar, Although I was blessed to be alive I always wanted the scar fixed. I consulted with Dr Moliver and he decided to do a scar revision with lipo. The surgery went very well and the scar looks so amazing. Dr... READ MORE

After years of living with a scar on my hand as a result of a traumatic event I decided to schedule a consultation with Dr. Miller and I'm so glad I did. I had been hiding the scar for so many years that the simple act of rolling up my sleeves and showing the scar to someone terrified me. I was... READ MORE

I was supposed to have a scar removed with my facelift. The scar is still present and my face looks exactly the same. The staff is very rude and would just transfer me from place to place rather than addressing my concerns. I wasted my money and still have a scar and look no different from the... READ MORE

I came to Dr. Rodriguez because I had a scar on my top right shoulder from a cancer surgery 8 years ago where they placed the port-a-catheter. Because the surgery was done by radiologists who aren't exactly concerned with making a "pretty scar", I was really unhappy for many years with this... READ MORE

A few years ago, I got a terrible result from Dr. Stephen J. Heaney in his Erie, PA office. I feel that he totally destroyed my self-esteem by performing an operation that he should NOT have chosen to do! Here are the facts: I originally consulted with him about very thin, flat, pale, (almost... READ MORE

Dr. Ransom is highly knowledgeable, diligent and a very caring Plastic Surgeon. I went to him for a keloid removal on my left ear lobe. This keloid has been excised by several plastic surgeons (famous ones) and it kept recurring. All these excisions were very expensive and above all this... READ MORE

I had a depressed scar on my forehead that I hated. I decided to meet with Dr. Aboolian because I'd heard only good things about him. I couldn't be more happy I went to him as scar removal procedures can get a little tricky, and you can have high expectations and end up with less than satisfying... READ MORE

Old scar is removed and a more precise cut is made by the surgeon and then closed with dissolveable sutures. This is the mainstay of scar revision. The scar is excised and the wound is closed carefully to achieve a nicer and finer scar. Many different techniques are used to achieve this and the... READ MORE

It took over 4 months after I tied a string around my keloid for it to finally come off . It was a painful and sometimes emotionally draining process that took waaay longer than expected. But the string method did work! It finally came off yesterday and I am so happy! If you're trying this... READ MORE

Aloha, I am a forty two year old patient of Dr. Schlesinger’s. I had surgery two months ago. The initial consultation was for scar reduction (I had several surgeries as a teenager. The scar adhered to my abdominal wall, which would tear when I coughed or sneezed – excruciating!) Dr. S came... READ MORE

Bad experience at this clinic! They promise everything and don't do it! I spend there $800 for my scar removal and after 3 sessions it's still exactly the same!! Wast of money and time!!! READ MORE

I knew within about a minute of talking with Jaime, the Patient Care Coordinator, that I had found the place to receive laser treatment for scar revision on my lip. I was doing initial research and had called several providers. Either they did not provide the service or I simply did not feel... READ MORE

Hi, I'm a 20 year old girl from London and I have been battling with keloids since the age of 16, and it has been absolute hell! It has completely stripped me of my confidence and I've spent years without ever tying my hair up. It's been such a misery being unable to keep up with many of the... READ MORE

I have suffered from keloids on my chest and back for over a decade and had every treatment possible for this condition. Lots of years of painful poking and prodding, with little or no positive outcome. I had the procedure in April of 2012 with Dr. Z Paul Lorenc in New York. He was very... 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

I can't say enough as to how blessed I am to have found Dr. Ransom and his amazing patient coordinator, Dee Roby! I am two days along after my ear keloid surgery and I can't believe the amazing outcome so far. Not only did Dr. Ransom do an amazing job, but he has made me feel like a brand new,... READ MORE

I have had a knot on the base of my neck just at my hairline, since I was about 15 years old. Dr. Palmer looked at it when I was young and advised me never to have anyone lance it, but that it would evnetually have to be surgically excised. Years later, as I entered my professional life and... READ MORE
