Is scar revision right for me?

A good candidate for scar revision is anyone who has raised or depressed scars, scars caused by trauma, or contour irregularities. Drs. Jerome Liu or Tom Liu will consider each scar on its own when determining whether someone is a suitable candidate for scar revision. The depth, thickness, color, size, and appearance of the scar are crucial factors to establish the best route for improvement. Thousands of people have successfully completed SVIA scar revision to restore mobility that severe burns may have hindered, or to improve appearance, especially in the case of facial scarring. 

What can I do to be ready for scar revision?

The first step with any scar revision procedure is to meet with one of our experienced physicians. At that time, we will take into consideration the location and the extent of the scarring. Together, we will discuss your goals and expectations, and develop a plan. Recovery times may differ depending on the location of the scar.

Will there be any risks with my scar revision?

Scar revision is typically safe, but it is important to follow your pre-and post-procedure instructions to ensure an optimal outcome.

What is the scar revision healing process like?

A scar located on the face might take less time to heal than a scar located on the leg. Our experienced team of professionals at SVIA will take time to discuss your options, address any questions you may have, and review the steps you should take to ensure a quick recovery.

What is recovery like?

Recovery times will vary depending on the depth and extent of the scar, and the technique employed in scar revision. Topical agents, dermal fillers, laser and light therapies, and steroid injections involve little to no downtime. Some scars require more, and a minor surgical procedure. You can expect some discomfort, swelling, and other mild side effects for one to two weeks after your procedure. Gradual improvements in the quality and color of the scarred skin will appear over the course of your recovery.
