Scar Revision means to alter a cut in the skin either at the time of injury or after a period of healing. When performed at the time of injury, the purpose is to provide a healthy skin edge for closure of a wound. When a scar is surgically treated weeks or months later the purpose is to make a bad scar better. Scar Revision provides improvement in the Texture, Tone, and Color of a scar.
Some scars will benefit from being removed surgically and changed with plastic surgery techniques called Z plasty or W plasty. Some will not benefit from surgery and are best treated with camouflage tattoo techniques. You will find an explanation of camouflage tattoo techniques here on the website. A plastic surgeon like Dr Sadove can best tell you which technique is best for you.
