I have a large scar on my upper left cheek that I would like removed.

Question:

I have a large scar on my upper left cheek that I would like removed. What is the process of scar revision? Is the scar completely eliminated after the procedure?

Answer:

I would need to evaluate your scar to fully answer this question. However, in general, scars that are wide, elevated, depressed, or aligned in an unpleasing direction on the face can be revised. There are several techniques to revise scars that include removal of the scar tissue and meticulous skin closure. The final result is a much less visible, thin, flat scar. Scar tissue is not completely eliminated after scar revision.
