Scar Revision Correction

Lacerations, burns, surgical incisions and other trauma to the facial skin can leave deep scars that can detract from the beauty of the face. Scarring is part of the healing process. However, scar tissue has a different consistency than skin, which can impact the form and function of facial tissue and muscles. Dr. Rousso offers scar revision correction to limit the effect of scar tissue on the appearance and function of the face, with excellent results for his patients.

Scars occur any time the skin or tissue is damaged. Even a small pimple can leave a scar, but the deeper the damage, the more pronounced the scar can become. In some cases, keloid scarring can occur, where the body continues to grow scar tissue in excess, creating a protruding growth.

Scar revision is more difficult than it may sound. Simply removing the scar tissue will only create another scar. It takes the skill of a highly trained and experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, like Dr. Rousso, to reconstruct the facial tissue and skin to reduce disfigurement to the face and hide the evidence of trauma to the face.

Intricate Scar Removal Surgery

Severe scarring can take more than one procedure to correct the damage to the skin and tissue. It can involve facial reconstruction, tissue or skin grafts and other procedures. While it is not a quick process, the results can be incredible. While it is impossible to completely remove all evidence of a scar, there can be a significant improvement to the aesthetic appearance of the skin and facial form.

If you have a severe facial scar you want removed, contact the office of Dr. Joseph Rousso in Manhattan for a consultation. Together, you and Dr. Rousso can explore the options to reduce the appearance of your scar and improve your facial beauty and balance.
