Scar Removal & Revision
When the skin is damaged, scar tissue is formed as part of the healing process. Everything from a pimple to a surgical incision will leave a scar on the skin. While small surface scars can fade over time, deeper scars can be very noticeable, even disfiguring. Our skin and plastic surgery specialists at LM Medical NYC offer scar removal and revision surgery to reduce the appearance of prominent or noticeable scars.
Once scar tissue has formed from skin damage, the skin will always have some evidence of a scar. It is impossible to completely eliminate a prominent scar, but it can be faded, reduced in size or hidden. Dr. Lesley Rabach is a highly experienced, double board certified facial plastic surgeon with knowledge in the most advanced techniques for scar removal and revision surgery. We also have a board certified dermatologist, Dr. Morgan Rabach, who specializes in skin aesthetics, including acne scar removal treatments.
Types of Scar Conditions
Scars come in many forms and types. The type of wound and location of the skin damage can influence the scar formation. There are also genetic and health condition factors that can impact the type of scar. Different scars may require different treatments for removal or revision. Our team at LM Medical NYC offers removal and treatment for the following types of scars:
Each scar and patient are unique and may be suited for different types of treatments. Our medical experts can recommend the best treatment plan to fade or reduce the appearance of scars, which can include non-surgical and surgical procedures.
Scar Revision Surgery
Some deep scars or pronounced scars may require plastic surgery. Dr. Lesley, our skilled facial surgeon, is highly qualified to perform scar revision surgery to improve the appearance of the skin and tissue. Using advanced plastic and reconstructive surgical techniques, many disfiguring scars can be moved, hidden or greatly reduced for better aesthetics.
