Scar Removal

After an accident, injury, or surgical procedure, patients may be left with an unsightly scar that diminishes their self-confidence, especially if the scar is in a very noticeable location on the body. At Astra Plastic Surgery we offer scar revision for patients seeking to improve the appearance of a scar. Scar revision in Atlanta can lighten scars, as well as smooth scar texture. While no scar can be removed completely, plastic surgery and scar revision surgery can often improve the appearance of a scar by making it less pronounced. Our Atlanta scar revision plastic surgeons will examine your scar and discuss if scar removal and revision surgery may be right for you. Whether it is revision surgery, steroid injections, or laser treatments, many scars can be improved dramatically with minimal downtime.

What Is Scar Revision?

Many patients struggle with scars left behind from previous injuries, surgical procedures, and more. Our scar revision specialists will create a customized treatment plan to help your scar appear less noticeable. Your scar revision treatment will be based on factors such as if your scar is raised, depressed, or dark in color.

Scar revision can minimize the appearance of scars so that they blend in with the surrounding skin. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer many scar revision methods, including surgery, laser treatments, microneedling, injectables, and topical treatments. Although scar revision won’t completely eliminate the scar, treatment can help match the color and texture of the scar to that of the surrounding skin. Scar revision can help address hypertrophic scars, depressed scars, keloids, and more.

What Are The Benefits Of Scar Revision?

Although scar revision can’t erase scars completely, it can significantly decrease their prominence. Scar revision in Atlanta can minimize the appearance of scars by allowing them to blend in with the texture and color of the surrounding skin. The scar revision procedure is individual to each patient and can be surgical or non-surgical. Scar revision in Atlanta can offer patients a renewed sense of self-confidence.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Scar Revision?

During your consultation for scar revision in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his staff of plastic surgery professionals will review the extent of your scar, your medical history, as well as your aesthetic goals to determine if you are an ideal candidate. The ideal candidate for scar revision is in good general health and a non-smoker.

If you struggle with scars caused by acne, burns, surgery, piercings, injury, or more, scar revision in Atlanta may be right for you. Scar revision can significantly increase patient confidence and allow them to feel like the best versions of themselves. If you are bothered by the appearance of your scar(s), scar revision at Astra Plastic Surgery can help. The scar revision procedure is highly customizable to meet the needs of each patient. It is important that candidates maintain realistic expectations for the results of their scar revision treatment.

What Should I Expect During Scar Revision?

Depending on the chosen method of scar revision, procedure steps may vary. However, before treating the scar, the area will be numbed to ensure the patient remains comfortable. Your scar revision surgeon will recommend the best anesthesia based on the specifics of the scar revision treatment. Some of the most commonly performed scare revision treatments are topical treatments, dermal fillers, laser therapy, dermabrasion, or chemical peels. All of these treatment options are minimally invasive and performed in-office.

For more severe scarring, a surgical procedure may be necessary. During this procedure, your scar revision surgeon will carefully excise the scar using a scalpel and close the wound with great precision to reposition the scar or lessen its visibility. The chosen technique for scar excision will depend on the extent of the scar and the patient’s aesthetic goals.

What Should I Expect After Scar Revision?

Patients who undergo minimally invasive scar revision treatments will require little-to-no recovery or downtime afterwards. However, it is always recommended that patients keep the treatment area clean and dry to avoid any possible irritation that may worsen the appearance of the scar.

After undergoing surgical scar revision, patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort. However, these symptoms are normal and should subside as your body continues to heal. Before sending you home after scar revision surgery, Dr. Killingsworth and his team will provide detailed aftercare instructions for your recovery. It is important that patients follow these instructions with care to minimize the healing process and maximize their results.





What Results Should I Expect From Scar Revision?

Immediately after scar revision treatment in Atlanta, patients may have a hard time visualizing their results. In some cases, the treatment area will be bandaged, and in others, the final results may not be visible until the treatment area fully heals. The results of scar revision are different for every patient. Some patients may require multiple treatments to make their scar appear less noticeable.

During your consultation for scar revision in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his team will provide you further details on the expected results of your scar revision treatment. It is important to note that as no two scars are the same, no two results will be the same. Results will vary depending on the extent of the scar, the body’s natural healing response, age, and more. Patients should maintain realistic expectations for the result of their scar revision treatment.
