Scar revision is an ambiguous term that can’t be described accurately without assessing the patient’s scar in the office. There are lots of modalities that can be used to improve a scar but that decision tree depends on what the doctor sees during the consult. It depends on what caused the scar, the location, the type of scar and lots of other factors. If you have an unsightly scar and would like to discuss options available to improve its appearance, make an appointment with one of our doctors so that your scar revision can be tailored to your specific needs. Please note that insurance coverage for scar revision procedures will vary depending on the clinical situation and insurance plan.
