Timing of scar revision begins with an examination. I perform scar revision on children, if appropriate. Laser can improve some scars without surgery.
If there is an obvious deformity or tissue loss, it would probably make sense to revise it sooner rather than later. If the deformity is minimal and the concern is more about color of the scar then patience will probably be the best medicine.
