Scar Removal: Q&AAsk a Question
Scar Revision Techniques?
I have two scars near my mouth and chin area which are the result of a traumatic injury (dog bite) at age 8. As you can see, the smaller scar is somewhat raised, while the other is indented. For reference, the longer of the two is about half an inch in length. I am concerned that an excision may cause the scars to become worse; particularly the raised one. What are some of the conservative and/or aggressive approaches to decreasing the visibility of each scar? What is the downtime necessary?
