Pre and Post Operative Instructions

If your scar is painful or itchy, is a cosmetic bother, is in a location that impedes movement or function, or causes uncomfortable friction, you may want to seek out scar revision surgery or treatment.

Certain surgical procedures may also leave behind uncomfortable scars, and you may find yourself seeking treatment for things like a tummy tuck scar revision or c-section scar revision.


Before surgery

A patient care concierge will guide you through the entire consultation process, which can be attended in person or virtually. During the consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals, answer any questions, and perform an examination to create a personalized surgical plan. You will then be matched with a surgical coordinator who will walk you through each step of the preoperative process.

Topical treatments: Gels, tapes, or methods of compression. These approaches tend to aid in wound healing and pigment reduction. 

Dermal Filler Injections: This is an option for indented or depressed scars and be treated regularly to maintain results. 

Steroid Injections: These injections can improve the look and size of scars 

Other moderately invasive treatments: Laser treatments, chemical peels, and dermabrasion. These treatments work by reducing uneven pigmentation or removing the top layers of skin to reduce the appearance of scars.

Surgical Excision: An incision is made along the current scar, the scar tissue is excised, and a precise method of wound closure is utilized in a layered approach to prevent excess skin tension.
