What is a Scar Revision?

Scar Revision is a surgical procedure in Boston that aims to minimize the appearance of scars and improve their overall texture and appearance. It is typically performed on scars that result from previous surgeries, injuries, or skin conditions. The goal of Scar Revision is to make the scar blend more naturally with the surrounding skin and create a smoother, less noticeable outcome.

During the procedure, Dr. Tandon may remove the existing scar tissue, reposition the scar, or use advanced techniques to promote better healing and tissue regeneration. The specific approach will depend on the type of scar, its location, and the individual’s unique skin characteristics. Some treatments that Dr. Tandon uses are:

Surgically revising the scar

This involves cutting and repositioning the scar to improve its appearance and blend it better with the surrounding skin.

Microneedling for scar

Microneedling is a non-surgical procedure that uses tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the scar, promoting collagen production and skin rejuvenation.

A light CO2 laser for scar

CO2 laser treatment uses targeted beams of light to remove the damaged skin and stimulate collagen production, leading to smoother and less visible scars.

The benefits that Scar Revision in Boston can provide go far beyond what most of our patients expect. Most individuals experience benefits such as:

  • Improved appearance

What to expect on the day of Scar Revision procedure?

On the day of Scar Revision surgery, we will be waiting with open arms and excitement for your new cosmetic aesthetic. The surgery will typically be performed under either local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the scar and the patient’s preference. Dr. Tandon will carefully mark the area to be treated, and the surgical scar site will be sterilized to ensure a clean environment.

During the procedure, Dr. Tandon will use the chosen technique, whether it’s surgically revising the scar, Microneedling, or a light CO2 Laser Treatment, to improve the appearance. The procedure will be conducted with precision and attention to detail to achieve the best possible outcome—this is the Tandov way.

Scar Revision recovery

After undergoing scar revision with Dr. Tandon, patients can expect a recovery period that involves some level of downtime and careful wound care. The specifics of the recovery will depend on the extent of the Scar Revision procedure performed and the technique used.

Patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. This will start to subside in the days following the procedure. You should avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for a few weeks to allow the surgical site to heal properly. Keeping the incision site clean and dry is essential to prevent infection. Dr. Tandon may recommend using ointments or dressings to protect the wound as it heals.
