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.

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.

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 struggled with gynecomastia in my childhood and had a procedure I was happy with. But, as I got older, scars got very unsightly and I personally didn't feel good about them.
