scar revision

overview

Scar revision surgery can help make scars from past surgeries or injuries less visible. If scar tissue restricts your movements, surgery can also help you move more freely.

services & treatment

If you need scar revision surgery, your Aurora care team will work with you to decide on the best approach. This might involve smoothing the scar tissue or evening out pigment discoloration. If a scar is distorting one of your features, scar revision surgery may be able to correct the problem. 

Treatment options may include:

  • Laser scar removal
  • Skin grafts: Doctors remove healthy tissue from another part of the body and transplant it to the damaged area.
  • Tissue expansion: A small silicone balloon filled with salt water is temporarily placed under the skin, which gradually stretches to provide more skin that can be used in reconstruction surgery.
