About scar revision
There are multiple types of scar revision procedures depending on the type of scar you have. Dr. Koger will assess your situation and prescribe the best way forward to alleviate the appearance of your scar. This may involve simple steroid injections or filling the space with a flap or skin graft. Dermabrasion may also be a method used to decrease the visibility of your scar, which scrapes off the top layers of skin. Dr. Koger will discuss the details of the best procedure with you and what you can expect for recovery.
Benefits of scar revision
Scar revision helps your scar blend better with the surrounding skin so that it is less obvious.
Candidates for scar revision
Due to the variables in types of scars and scar revision procedures, your first step in discerning whether or not you are a good candidate for scar revision will be to schedule a consultation with Dr. Koger. It is important that you wait for at least one year or more after the injury or surgery that caused the scar before you seek out a scar revision procedure.
Dr. Koger will examine your scar and discuss with you the possible options for lessening the appearance of the scar. Dr. Koger will go over potential procedures and benefits. At this time, any questions, concerns or expectations can also be discussed. It is important that you feel comfortable with the process and its possible results.
