Pediatric Scar Revision
Any penetration or damage to the skin can leave behind a scar. Burns, surgical procedures and lacerations can all create deep scars that can be disfiguring, especially when they occur on the face. Some children have extensive scarring on their face, as well as have issues that impact the movement of their facial muscles. This could expose them to bullying and teasing from other children. Pediatric scar revision can reduce the appearance of the deformity and achieve improved tissue movement and growth.
Dr. Joseph Rousso is a highly acclaimed facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon that offers many pediatric surgical procedures that can correct deformities. His extensive experience in plastic surgery reconstruction for ears, noses, eyelids and skin have made him one of the leading experts in NYC for childhood facial deformities. Using the most advanced techniques, his skills can be used in pediatric scar revision to improve the mobility of the face while reducing the appearance of scar tissue.
Reducing the Appearance of Facial Scars
Childhood scars on the face can change a person’s life. A large burn, incision or cut can impede the muscle movement or disfigure features, impacting the child’s appearance and self-confidence as they grow older. Plastic surgery and other scar treatments can limit the disfiguring aspect of a scar and are more effective when completed shortly after the scar tissue is completely healed. Undergoing plastic or reconstructive surgery on severe scars early can have a positive impact, both on the aesthetics of the child’s face and their confidence levels as they grow older.
