Scar revision involves cutting out the old scar and creating a finer surgical scar that should be less noticeable than the original scar. Sometimes techniques are used to create an irregular scar to replace a prominent straight line scar. In many cases, techniques such as dermabrasion or laser resurfacing are used to further blend in the revised scar. I hope this information is helpful.
