Facial Scar Revision with Surgery, Dermabrasion and Laser
This 18-year-old 12th-grade student came to our hospital seeking to improve the scar on the right side of the cheek which she sustained after a road traffic accident 3 years ago. In spite of having used all the skin creams that the doctors have suggested, she was not happy with the results and also had slight asymmetry on that side of the face… she felt that the skin over the cheek was a bit loose and hanging. Dr Richardson examined her and determined that she requires a scar revision procedure to not only lighten the scar but also to pexy the underlining tissues. A couple of months ago, she underwent the said procedures, all under local anaesthesia and went home the same day without staying over at the hospital. She showed marked improvement in her second review and was delighted with the results.
Most unsightly scars resulting from accidents or earlier surgeries on the face can be improved… some even totally removed. Various surgical techniques along with laser skin resurfacing and dermabrasion in the trained hands produce such desirable permanent results.
