Scar revision can improve the appearance of the scar by making it less obvious, but it cannot remove a scar. This may involve moving local tissue to improve the scar appearance, making the scar more narrow, or shifting the scar to a less visible place or direction. Dermabrasion or laser therapy removes the top layers of skin and as new skin forms, the scar is blunted.

Skin Reconstruction

Skin grafting moves skin without blood vessesl from a healthy area to the injured area to cover wounds or release tightened scar contractures, since scars can pull tissue together and impair function. These contractures require release and treatment with local tissue flaps, grafts, tissue expansion or larger flap procedures.

Flap surgery involves moving skin with underlying soft tissues and blood vessels from a healthy area to the site of need.

A Z-plasty repositions a scar along more natural lines and creases to decrease its visibility and increase length, allowing the wound to heal with less tension.

I was very pleased with my experience with the practice

I was very pleased with my experience with the practice. I was treated warmly and with respect. There was not a moment that I felt uncomfortable. The receptionists, nurse and especially Dr. Rebowe were wonderful and put me at ease immediately. I intend to have the surgery recommended, and I plan to have more work done in the future. I would recommend this practice to anyone considering cosmetic or reconstructive surgery.
