Are You Considering Scar or Burn Revision Surgery? Here's What You Should Know

Scar and burn revision surgeries are transformative options for anyone seeking to enhance both their physical appearance and emotional well-being. Scars form to heal and replace lost or damaged skin. They may result from surgery, injury, infection, or another type of tissue inflammation — such as a burn.

Regardless of how your scar developed, it can change your appearance, cause discomfort and itchiness, and restrict movement. Scar revision and burn revision restore comfort, improve your cosmetic appearance, and help you regain function in any area restricted by the scar. 

At The Aesthetic Surgery Center, our renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Elliott H. Rose, is known worldwide for his scar and burn revision techniques. If you’re considering scar revision, your number one priority is to find a qualified and experienced surgeon like Dr. Rose.

If you’re bothered by a scar or burn, revision surgery may be for you. Here’s what to consider when determining whether to pursue a procedure.

Scar revision surgery is not just about your appearance

Scar and burn revision surgeries are not solely cosmetic procedures; they are often performed to improve functionality and alleviate discomfort. People who choose scar or burn revision procedures usually find their injury hinders normal activities or significantly impacts their quality of life.

You may have an emotional response

Scars and burns can occur anywhere and alter the appearance of your skin or features. This has the potential to profoundly affect your self-esteem and confidence. At The Aesthetic Surgery Center, we recognize the importance of addressing not only the physical aspects but also the emotional well-being of our patients.

We work with you to help you understand your possible results through surgery and to set reasonable expectations. We will do everything to improve the appearance of your burn or scar, but remember, no scar can be completely removed or erased. 

You undergo a comprehensive consultation

Before scar or burn revision surgery, you undergo a comprehensive consultation. Dr. Rose assesses the extent of scarring, makes sure he understands your goals, and discusses realistic expectations. When determining your candidacy for any revision surgery, he considers the type of scar, how old the scar is, and its location.

Be sure to communicate openly during this consultation to fully understand the techniques Dr. Rose recommends and your expected outcome. 

Not all procedures are the same

Scar and burn revision surgeries encompass various techniques, including tissue expansion, grafting, and laser therapy. Dr. Rose uses some of the most advanced methods and tailors them to your unique situation. 

He uses computerized facial analysis to detect distortions in facial features as well as functional challenges, like trouble smiling or chewing. This technology helps you visualize how you will look after the procedure, too.

Everyone’s recovery is different

After surgery, you need to be diligent about taking care of yourself for successful healing. We provide detailed instructions on wound care, lifestyle adjustments, and follow-up appointments to monitor your progress. We prioritize your comfort and well-being throughout the recovery process.

You may require more than one procedure before you see your final results. Surgical and burn revisions can be a long process that involve more than one technique, so be prepared. But your transformation is worth it!

At The Aesthetic Surgery Center, we recognize that scar or burn revision surgeries are not just about the physical transformation. We want to help you reclaim your confidence and well-being. Call today or use our website to book your consultation.
