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: $1,575

Old abdominal scar looked wide, ugly, caused some tension. Was worth revising. The revised scar is thinner and less visible. It was worth doing it. It was done in outpatient setting with local anesthesia. Dr. Kaufman took time to explain the procedure and its outcome. It was a cool experience.... READ MORE

I had a steroid injection into my forhead where I had a lump from a spot that created a sphere of scar tissue I got told by my cosmetic surgeon that the steroid injection would flatten it out so I had the injection. He said the swelling wad just fluid, so I took his word for it but 1 week on my... READ MORE

Dr. Westreich is a professional, attentive and caring plastic surgeon. I met him for the first time on very short notice ( a few hours). He took a great deal of time with me and even did a drawing of two options I had and took the time to explain them in detail - he was patient and kind in doing... READ MORE

I, am hoping for success from one of your recommended treatments. Because of where it is located, it looks like a mustache. I, am a 65 yr. old black female. I, can't stand to look in mirror. I,was in an auto accident, the airbag deployed, sharp particles came out and caused what the... READ MORE

I had this old ugly scar from my appendectomy when I was 14 years old in Japan. The scar had been becoming uglier and uglier and as I aged it became more prominent as some fat accumulated around the scar making the section bulging up. I was feeling embarrassed in bikinis and also when I wore... 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

When I was born, I had exploratory surgery which left a 8" scar down the middle of my stomach. Dr. Brown excised the old scar to create a smaller scar., in the hopes that I'll achieve a thin line. Jury is still out on this, as I'm told scars take time to heal. Overall my experience... READ MORE

Jason emer MD for help to fix my face. He was very nice about it and sugested me to do ' sublative laser' i... READ MORE

Last year, I had scar revision surgery with Dr. Kutty. To give some background on my skin type/texture: African American, keloid prone, surgery in high tension area (upper arm/shoulder). Years before I went to dr. Kutty I had large almost 1/2 inch high keloids protruding from my skin from a car... READ MORE

I want to share this story with you guys because I know there is not a lot of treatment options for people with burn scars and maybe you can find it helpful. My native language is spanish so please excuse my grammar.. I had an accident when I was 16 years old during a BBQ with my friends. I... READ MORE

I had a car accident 4 years ago and in the ER they literally "stitched me up". It looked terrible on my jaw. Dr. Kim took lots of time in the office to explain everything to me and now after the surgery its looks amazing. Barely visible and everyday its gets better. I am so happy . The office... READ MORE

I am a stage 4 terminal cancer SURVIVOR! Thanks to Dr. Spies! I absolutely adore and love this Doctor not only as a wonderful surgeon but also as a friend. He has a wonderful talent with his plastic surgery procedures and he has a very caring and gentle bedside manner. Dr. Spies helped to... READ MORE

This was 2nd finger Dr Greco repaired for me. The cysts look inflamed & unsightly because they protrude from top surface of hand, but no infection or pain. One can drain fluid frequently; but this could invite infection. Instead Dr Greco removed sac (myxoid cyst) to prevent leaking of joint... READ MORE

I knew I made a big mistake immediately after the surgery. Dr. Young excised two scars on my chin and made them worse. The result was two prominent bumps due to excess tissue he failed to remove. I had to pay another surgeon thousands of dollars to fix. This should have been a relatively... 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
