Scar revision can reduce the visibility of scars for a smoother, more natural appearance to the skin.
Dr. Matthew White uses a variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures to improve or reduce the appearance of scars. Scars are a normal result of the skin’s natural healing process and can form due to burns, acne, surgery, or accidental trauma. Multiple layers of skin are involved in the formation of a scar and once a scar has formed, it is typically considered permanent. Patients with facial scarring may even experience heightened degrees of disfigurement or diminished facial functionality.
Scars can take a very heavy physical and emotional toll, and have a significant effect on one’s confidence and self-esteem. Our facial plastic surgeon offers advanced treatments that can enhance both form and function of areas of the face and neck affected by scarring.

Scar revision procedures can improve functionality while also addressing aesthetic concerns. The benefits of scar revision include:
Although Dr. White can reduce the appearance of scars and improve functionality in certain areas, scar revision patients should understand that scars are permanent and cannot be entirely eliminated. Sometimes a combination of treatments is necessary for optimal results. Keeping these expectations in mind, Dr. White can achieve wonderful outcomes for his patients.
Depending on the extent of the scarring, the downtime associated with the procedure will vary from patient to patient. Dr. White’s patients are typically able to return to their normal day-to-day lives within 1-2 days, though certain activities may remain restricted for a longer period of time.
