Scar Revision

View Before & AfterPhoto Gallery

Whether they’re formed by accident or surgery, scars are mysterious and unpredictable. The way a scar develops depends as much on how your body heals as it does on the original injury or the surgeon’s skills. Many variables affect a scars severity – including the size and depth of a wound, the nature of blood supply, the direction of the scar, and the thickness and color of your skin.

It is a personal matter, of course, as to how much the appearance of a scar bothers you. While no scar can be removed completely, the plastic surgeons of Sunset Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Steven Svehlak or Dr. Daniel Yamini can often improve a scars appearance. If you’re considering a scar revision procedure, a consultation with the double-board certified surgeons will answer your questions and give you a basic understanding of the most common types of scars, their procedures used to treat them and the results you might expect.
