Any wound to the skin can cause scar tissue to form. While scar tissue does help heal a wound, it does not have the same appearance as the skin it replaces. Scars can be disfiguring, especially from traumatic injuries like animal attacks and auto accidents that damage the face or neck. At LM Medical NYC, our phenomenal facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Lesley Rabach, offers scar revision plastic surgery at our clinic in Manhattan.

Jagged, deep, large or raised scars on the face can be disfiguring. Scar tissue is more rigid than normal skin, reducing its flexibility with facial muscle movement. While most facial trauma injuries are treated by an emergency physician, they are solely concerned with the treatment of the injury, not the aesthetics of the face. The resulting scar can restrict facial movement and change the appearance of the face. To restore the movement and aesthetics of the face, scar revision plastic surgery or treatment may be needed.

Facial Scar Correction

There is no way to completely remove a scar; any wound to the skin will leave some scar tissue and evidence behind. However, facial scar revision surgery or treatment can be used to minimize the appearance and improve facial movement. For mild to moderate scars that do not restrict muscle movement, treatments like laser therapy may reduce their appearance. For deeper scars, plastic surgery may be needed to release restricted muscles or tendons and remove excessive scar tissue. Depending on the severity of the scar, skin grafts and other advanced techniques could help restore the form and function of the face.

You do not need to live with a disfiguring facial scar. Dr. Lesley at LM Medical NYC is a talented and experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who offers scar revision plastic surgery at our medical clinic in Greenwich Village. Contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment to discuss scar correction treatments.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
