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.

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.

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 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

I had a keloid scar that I really hated. The dermatologists blew me off. Dr. Bakshandeh gave me the pros and cons of what I could realistically expect and I chose to have him take care of it. It worked out very well and now I barely have any scar at all. Luckily, Insurance covered it for me. READ MORE
