Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture.
Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Even a wound that heals well can result in a scar that affects your appearance. Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location.
Your treatment options may vary based on the type and degree of scarring and can include: topical treatments, minimally invasive procedure and/or surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure.
Breast reconstruction is achieved through several plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a breast to near normal shape, appearance and size following mastectomy.
If only one breast is affected, it alone may be reconstructed. In addition, a breast lift, breast reduction or breast augmentation may be recommended for the opposite breast to improve symmetry of the size and position of both breasts.
Breast reconstruction typically involves several procedures performed in multiple stages. It can begin at the same time as a mastectomy or be delayed until fully recovered from the mastectomy and any additional cancer treatments.
If an earlobe has been stretched due to the popular trend of gauging, or by that of injury, it may need restoration or reconstruction to restore the appearance. In cases where skin elasticity is poor, a combination of liposuction and body lift techniques may be recommended.
