Any damage to the skin can result in scar tissue. Larger lacerations or incisions may leave noticeable scars that can be unattractive or disfiguring. Scars can be flat, indented or raised – some scars create excess tissue and result in a keloid growth. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center, we offer scar revision plastic surgery to improve the appearance of large or unattractive scars at our facility in Toledo, OH.
Scar tissue is different than the original skin it repairs. The texture and color of scars can change the appearance of the skin and restrict the movement. Whether it is a c-section scar that indents the abdomen or a facial scar that is distracting, scar revision procedures can move or minimize scar tissue for an improved appearance.
Dr. Peter Koltz is a double fellowship-trained and board certified plastic surgeon. He has years of expertise and experience improving the appearance of his patients. When scar tissue is causing discomfort or aesthetic concerns, Dr. Koltz can determine the best procedure to remove or hide scars. Laser treatment, surgery and other procedures can be used to hide, move, revise or fade unattractive scars.
Scar Correction Surgery
While it is impossible to completely remove a scar, it can be reduced or moved to hide its appearance. Some scars can be minimized with non-surgical treatments – laser skin therapy can fade dark scars to make them less visible. For hypertrophic or atrophic scars that disfigure the skin, scar revision surgery may be needed to improve the skin appearance. Specialized treatments can be used to reduce scarring from the revision surgery, including using silicone sheets and medications.
Scars from surgery, burns, lacerations or other types of traumas can change your appearance. If you have a scar that is impacting natural movement or disfiguring your skin, scar revision surgery or scar removal treatments may be the solution.
