Scar Revision

There are various small benign lesions or scars particularly on the face which give unsightly appearance and may warrant removal or revision. The aim of scar revision is to make the old scar look better or less noticeable. This operation leaves behind another scar at the site of excision or revised scar. The amount of the scar could vary due to various factors like the person's age, heredity, race, skin characteristics and the type, direction, depth, size and location of the wound. The scar revision may also need non surgical treatment as by laser or creams to improve the appearance.
