Scar Revision in Boca Raton at Farber Plastic Surgery
Scars are a part of life, and for some people, scars are the first chapter in an adventure-packed story of daring and adventure. Your scar, however, isn’t as sexy and exciting, and in fact, it is something that you try to hide.
What Is Scar Revision?
Scars are the result of your body quickly repairing your skin after an injury to protect you from infection. The result is a chaotic pattern of skin cells that no longer blends with the surrounding skin. Scar revision by Dr. Farber minimizes the appearance of your scar so that it is less noticeable.
Is Scar Revision Right for Me?
Dr. Farber recommends scar revision for improving the appearance of scars that result from injury, surgery, acne, and many other types of trauma to the skin. During your consultation, Dr. Farber examines your scar and explains how scar revision can improve the size, shape, and texture of your scar.
