Any time the skin is damaged, it can leave a scar. The cells that repair cuts and burns to the skin are different in appearance and form. This can create a discolored flaw that may have a different texture than the skin around it. When large scars are on the face or neck, they can be disfiguring. While there is no way to completely remove a scar, there are cosmetic options to disguise or diminish their appearance through scar revision plastic surgery.
Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, is a highly respected facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in NYC with a dual board certification. Using his extensive training and experience in the field of plastic surgery and facial reconstruction, he can help those with disfiguring scars on their face or neck improve their appearance. Depending on the size, location and depth of the scar, he can use various techniques to restore a normal appearance to the skin and tissue. The results can be astounding, giving back his patients with scar deformities self-confidence in their appearance.
How Is Scar Correction Performed?
The techniques used for scar correction can be as simple as laser therapy or as complex as reconstruction surgery. It depends on how deep the scar is and the tissues affected. For surface scars from incisions or damage to the skin, minimally-invasive techniques like laser therapy are effective. If the scar tissue is deeper, affecting the skin and facial muscles, scar revision may require surgery to restore facial movement and skin. In severe cases, tissue transfer and skin grafts may be needed to reconstruct the area where the scar was removed.
