If you have a scar or two that make you feel self-conscious on any day of the year but October 31st, it may be time to consider getting scar revision surgery done by our office here at The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester.

What Is Scar Revision Surgery?

Depending on the type of scar, the location, and your skin type, our doctors will determine what type of surgery is ideal for you. There are three main types of scar revision surgeries that we offer at The Plastic Surgery Group of Rochester.

  • Steroid Injections: Steroids aren’t just for your weight lifting friends. In fact, they can help to boost your body’s natural healing process which works to minimize the appearance of both keloid and hypertrophic scars.
  • Z-Plasty: Although this surgery may sound like something out of World War Z, it luckily has nothing to do with zombies. Z-plasty is a minor surgery that is used to realign the car so that it is less visible.
  • Skin Grafting and Flap Surgery: For larger, deeper scars, our doctors may recommend skin grafting and flap surgery. During this procedure, healthy skin is removed from one part of your body and is then transferred to the area that has been injured.

If your scars are scaring you and making you feel self-conscious, it’s time to consider getting them removed. Schedule your scar revision consultation with our Rochester office today!
