What is Surgical Scar Revision?
Here in our San Jose office, we see many patients who have scars due to previous accidents or injuries. And if you want to improve the appearance of your unsightly scars, we can help you with our surgical scar revision treatments.
Using several techniques, you can see just how much of an improvement we can make in our surgical scar revision before and after pictures. Our helpful staff is also on hand to discuss surgical scar revision prices, or to answer any other questions you may have about the procedure.
How is Surgical Scar Revision Performed?
Depending on the severity of the scar, there are several surgical scar revision procedures that can be employed. One options is to remove the scar completely, closing the new wound very carefully to minimize any new scarring. Another technique is employing dermabrasion techniques to remove the upper layers of the skin. This also stimulates the production of new, healthier skin cells. Another surgical scar revision procedure in San Jose is called skin grafting, where your surgeon will take a layer of skin from another part of the body and place it over the treatment area. Lastly, tissue expansion is another effective procedure, which is performed by inserting a silicone balloon under the skin. This type of procedure is often used for breast reconstruction patients.
What are the Typical Results of Surgical Scar Revision?
Surgical scar revision will yield different results, as it’s a very individualized procedure. Success can depend on a number of factors, including the patient’s age, skin type and heredity factors, as well as the size and shape of the scar. It’s important to remember that no scar can be eliminated completely. But what we aim to do with surgical scare revision is to improve the appearance, reducing any self-consciousness or embarrassment associated with the wound.

For maximum results, avoid sun exposure for several months following treatment.
What are Surgical Scar Revision Costs?
As we mentioned, surgical scar revision is a very individualized procedure, so surgical scar revision costs will depend on the patient and the type of technique that is used. The best way to determine which procedure is best for you is to set up a consultation with one of our highly skilled surgeons.
