Scar Revision Surgery In Albuquerque, New Mexico
Scar revision surgery is a procedure to improve the appearance of a scar. Scars can occur from injuries, surgery, or other conditions. Scar revision surgery can be performed on any type of scar and is often done to improve the function as well as the appearance of the scar.
How Does The Procedure Work?
Scar revision surgery removes the existing scar and repairs the wound with sutures. Reasons for scar revision include widened scars, hypertrophic (overgrown) scars, keloids, dark scars, or tethered scars. The scar is closed in a meticulous fashion ensuring exact approximation of skin edges. Following postoperative protocol to prevent recurrence is paramount.
The type of scar revision surgery that is best for you will depend on the type of scar you have, where it is located, and your overall health. Your surgeon will consider all of these factors when recommending the best kind of scar revision surgery for you.
