Can my skin graft be removed? What are my options? (Photo)
3 years ago
Scar revision. Skin graft from a burn injury over 20yrs ago. Measures 30 by 40 cm on lower back and buttocks. I want to get as much removed as possible. I also have extra skin on my stomach from having children. I don't want to get a tummy tuck so is it possible to use this extra skin or pull it around so that the scar tissue can be cut away?

- Scar Excision may be difficult. A more feasible option would be improve the texture and color of the scars.
- One option may be to employ Plato's Scar Serum to help reduce the thickness and improve the texture of the scar.
