Your Scar Revision Treatment
Depending on the scarring, Dr. Arledge may excise it and close it in a more meticulous fashion. Other types of scars require rearrangement of adjacent skin to break up the scar line (such as Z-plasty).
Scar revision is typically done under local anesthesia in the office. In most cases, the scar will look slightly worse for a short period of time before it begins to demonstrate improvements. Sometimes this can take up to several weeks to months.

To enhance your appearance subtly
Therefore, any patient considering scar revision needs to be aware that immediate improvements are not likely and patience needs to be exercised during recovery. Knowing this, scar revision is an excellent option that can ultimately provide you a significant improvement in terms of scar appearance.
