Scar Revision NYC
Pia, It appears from your photos that you may be a candidate for scar revision, but physical exam would be helpful. Usually scar revision can be done in the office under local anesthesia, and in your case, should take less than 1 hour. Strict scar care afterwards is recommended, as it helps with scar maturation and result. Check out the link below to an article I wrote about the subject, as it may help you understand the process. Be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon, good luck!
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may be a candidate for a scar revision. The
most important aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I
recommend that you seek consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic
surgeon who can evaluate you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.
