Atlanta Scar Revision Surgery
Facial scarring often occurs when skin has been damaged, due to a trauma, burn, acne, infection, or previous surgery and may result in wide or depressed scars, hypertrophic scars or keloids. When a facial scar develops it is permanent and can have profound psychological and emotional impacts. However, when it is revised with reconstructive surgery, it can be made to be less noticeable.

Most people who suffer from facial scarring are often very insecure about their facial abnormality. In some cases, facial scars can distort or limit the functioning of normal structures including: the lips, brows, nose, and eyes.
Is Scar Revision Right For You?
There are many factors involved in scar revision surgery. One must take a person’s age, skin type, the placement, and the nature of the scar into consideration. Most people find bad facial scarring unsightly and very unattractive mainly because they are so visible. In many cases, facial scarring may affect facial expressions including: smiling, blinking, and eyelid or brow function.
It is important to note that every facial scar is different. Some patients may require more than one scar revision procedure to correct facial scarring. In addition, facial scarring requires meticulous plastic surgery techniques. Also, the timing of surgery is imperative with most scars revised after 9 to 12 months.
Most patients that experience facial injuries are often told to wait at least 12 months after the injury to allow sufficient healing time and scar maturation.
