This 45-year-old man came in asking for improvement in the appearance of his lower face scar. The scar had been bothering him for more than 10 years, and he finally decided to do something about it. See the improvement he achieved through a scar revision procedure in New York City.
Motivation for Scar Revision:
Cosmetic appearance of the scar was unsatisfactory
Scar Revision Technique:
W-plasty was used to break up the straight line appearance and closed in several layers. Dermabrasion was used after the W-plasty wound healed to help camouflage the remaining scar.
No significant pain - 2 weeks for the dermabrasion wound to heal
