It may be the result of a cesarean section or other abdominal surgery or even from a cosmetic surgery that was supposed to improve your appearance. Whatever the cause, Cranberry Township plastic surgeons want you to know that Advanced Liposuction Center offers several scar revision procedures which can lessen the appearance of ugly scars.

If you’re sick of your unfortunate scars and are ready to get them removed, the first step is to schedule your free consultation with one of our expert cosmetic surgeons.

Depending on the severity of the scar, the plastic surgeon may recommend one of the following procedures:

Minor Scars—if your scar is minimal, there are a couple of procedures the doctor will choose from:

  • Specialty Dressings—in some cases, no surgery is necessary to correct scarring. In the least severe cases, sheet silicone or other specialty dressings can be applied to reduce the scar’s appearance and encourage more complete healing.
  • Dermabrasion—removes the topmost layers of skin and in many cases, this removes most of the visible scar tissue.
  • Laser Scar Reduction—although this will require multiple treatments, laser therapy can be very effective in scar revision.

Medium Scars—the cosmetic surgeon will carefully and skillfully re-orient your scar by pulling it and anchoring the skin to place them in existing folds where they will be less visible.

Severe Scars—in cases where scarring is more dramatic, our plastic surgeons may need to surgically remove scar tissue and carefully rejoin the edges of the incisions to minimize future scarring.

With the right procedure, you can look forward to dramatically reducing the appearance of your scar, sometimes by more than 90%! After 6-8 weeks, scars may be barely visible. If you want to find out if one of our scar revision procedures can help you, contact us today by calling: 724-683-7581.
