Scars can be painful reminders of a past injury or surgery. Scar revision surgery can minimize the scar so it is more consistent with the surrounding skin texture and tone. Scars can be unsightly or disfiguring. They may be raised, recessed, or a different color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue. Depending on their location, they may be embarrassing for people. Good candidates for scar revision include individuals who are bothered by their scars, are physically healthy, do not smoke, do not have acne or other skin conditions in the areas they wish to have treated, and have positive outlooks and realistic goals. Reducing the appearance of scars can help people feel more beautiful and confident.
