How does scar revision surgery work?

It can also help to restore function and correct skin disfigurement caused by an injury, wound, or previous surgery. Scar treatment options at Georgetown Plastic Surgery vary based on the type and degree of scarring and include minimally invasive procedures and surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure.

Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue, or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape, or location.
