There are many factors that affect how a scar develops, including the type and cause of the original injury, the skills of the surgeon who initially treated the wound, and how your own body heals.

No scar can be removed completely, of course, but our skilled Philadelphia scar revision specialist can perform reconstructive facial surgery to improve the appearance of a scar so it is less visible. A scar on your face can be a constant reminder of trauma and a real source of self-consciousness. You deserve to feel confident in your first impression and not feel like you need to explain your scar all the time or wonder what others think.

Treating Scars with Revision Surgery

At Morgenstern Center for Orbital and Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ken Morgenstern, MD, FACS has the training and experience to handle delicate reconstructive facial surgery procedures. By entrusting him with your scar revision surgery, you gain peace of mind in knowing that licensed professionals are looking after you.

Over time, scars that start out looking large an unattractive will become less noticeable as redness and inflammation subside. Because scars continue to change and heal for many months, scar revision surgery should be considered only after at least a year. If a scar does warrant revision surgery, it can often be performed under local anesthesia in our office or as an outpatient procedure.

There are many factors that affect the formation of scars, including:

  • The size and depth of the wound
  • The blood supply to the area
  • The thickness and color of your skin
  • The direction of the scar
