The scar revision procedure What to expect

Scar revision is a highly customizable procedure designed to address scars of varying types and severities. During your consultation at Muse Plastic Surgery, we will assess your scar, considering its size, shape, depth, and location and choose the best treatment option based on your scars unique characteristics.

  • Surgical revision involves incision, removing old scar tissue, and carefully rejoining the skin to minimize scarring. 
  • Laser treatments effectively resurface scars by removing the damaged top layer of skin, stimulating collagen production, and improving texture and color.
  • Microneedling, a minimally invasive technique, creates tiny punctures in the scar to stimulate collagen growth and result in smoother skin.

Whichever treatment method is chosen depends on the complexity of the scar and your comfort level. All treatments can be carried out under local anesthesia, twilight sedation, or general anesthesia. Procedure duration varies based on the size and complexity of the scar and the selected method. Some may take as little as 30 minutes, while others require several hours. At Muse Plastic Surgery, we will assess your unique scar and discuss the most appropriate scar revision technique to help you achieve your desired results.

Scar revision recovery

Initial results from your scar revision may be visible soon after the procedure, but the scar will continue to improve over several months as the skin heals and regenerates. Protecting the treated area from the sun is essential during the healing process to minimize the risk of hyperpigmentation or other unwanted changes to the scar. You will have follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your scar care regimen. If we administer your scar revision treatment via surgery, you may require several days of rest to allow the incision to heal. 

We may recommend specialized ointments or creams for scar care as well. Proper wound care and scar management are essential for optimal healing. Non-surgical methods typically involve shorter downtime, often allowing a return to regular activities within a day or two. You may experience mild redness, swelling, or discomfort in the treated area. Still, it is manageable with prescribed or over-the-counter pain relievers, as advised by the medical team. All details will be discussed during your consultation at Muse Plastic Surgery.
