Scar revisions can be performed on any scar on the body. Most common for old tummy tuck scars or c-section scars which have widened or produced excess scar tissue. A revision is typically performed under local anesthesia and new secure sutures are placed. To help reduce wound tension, a special support system known as the Embrace system is added to the post operative process. Additionally, we use YAG lasers to reduce discoloration and steroid injections as needed to modify the wound maturation process. The end result is a smoother smaller scar.
