Who's Better Qualified to Do a Scar Excision - Dermatologist or a Plastic Surgeon?

I can think of merits to choosing either. But maybe a professional in the field can help me figure out - who's better trained/qualified/approrpiate to do a skin excision on a scar?

Both are good options. Depends on whether the doctors have surgical experience and the needed lasers in their office. Raffy Karamanoukian Los Angeles
