Scars may appear after poor healing. Scars can be unattractive and may impact your confidence and self-image. A scar revision helps to improve the appearance of a scar, making it blend more smoothly  with the surrounding skin.

What is Scar Revision?

Scar revision can be used for scars that are poorly healed or for scars that have become too noticeable, such as keloids, hypertrophic scars, contractures or irregularities. The location, shape, color, texture, and size of your scar will be evaluated. Depending  on the scar’s severity and your personal goals, a specific treatment option will be recommended.

Some treatment modalities include:

  • Topical treatments
  • Laser treatments
  • Surgical revision


Recovery Time


Anesthesia Type

Varies - Typically Local Anesthesia

Scar Revision Candidates

Candidates for scar revision are individuals who are unhappy with the appearance of a scar. Candidates can typically be of any age and must be physically healthy, without acne or skin diseases in the treatment area. All candidates must be non-smokers.

The Scar Revision Procedure

When the procedure begins, medications are infiltrated into the area to minimize any discomfort.  An incision will be created and the appropriate revision will take place. Most commonly, absorbable sutures will be used.

Scar Revision Recovery

After a scar revision you may experience some swelling, bruising and discomfort that will improve throughout the following days. The new scar will progressively improve overtime until the final results become apparent after several  months.

I knew two things were most important to me when looking for the right surgeon: the results and bedside manner. I feel so grateful to have hit the jackpot with Dr D who gave me the BEST of both of those. From the first moment I met her in the consult, I knew she was different from most doctors. She is incredibly kind, sweet, patient, and attentive. She made me feel cared for in a way that’s hard to put into words, but when you’re preparing for a big surgery, it’s the exact type of energy that puts you at total ease. Dr D not only answered all my questions, on multiple different occasions, leading up to surgery but she was extremely patient with them all. 

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino.

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino. She is always on time, personable and kind! She walked me through every step of my procedure, removed all of my cancer and did an amazing job. My scar is barely noticeable at just a couple weeks after my procedure. I will definitely be back for any other cosmetic needs.
