Scar Revision & Skin Surgery

Unsightly, disfiguring scars, or defects can be disconcerting and often devastating to one's self-image. In addition to scars, other blemishes or defects that may be removed or improved with carefully planned plastic surgical techniques include:

  • Moles
  • Skin Tumors (Cancers)
  • Birthmarks
  • Cysts

The appearance of most scars or blemishes may be improved by well planned and carefully executed surgery.

In reality, the surgeon's goal is to replace an unsightly or disfiguring scar with a better scar, one which is more narrow, more level, blends with the surrounding skin surface, and which causes no contracture or pull on the surrounding structures; in short, one which is as inconspicuous as possible.
