Scar Revision In Miami, FL

A Fresh Start

Scar Revision at FusionMD

At FusionMD in Miami Scar Revision Surgery by our skilled surgeons targets resistant scars, surpassing results from cortisone drugs, steroids, or skin gels. Various methods address scarring, such as excision, dermabrasion, and laser treatment. Factors like scar size, depth, blood supply, and skin tone influence the extent of scarring. While complete scar removal is often impossible, most scars can be significantly improved, offering patients enhanced aesthetics and renewed self-confidence.

Precision Approaches

What is Scar Revision?

Scars develop as the body's natural response to healing wounds. Scar revision surgery aims to enhance or reduce the visibility of scars, helping individuals feel more at ease with their appearance. A range of techniques can be employed, including injections, laser therapy, and skin resurfacing. Each scar is distinct, and during a consultation, specific recommendations for the most suitable procedure are tailored to address individual needs.

Lasting Confidence

What are the benefits of Scar Revision?

Undergoing scar revision surgery offers the advantage of reducing the unsightly appearance of scars and boosting self-confidence. The extent of downtime post-surgery is typically minimal, contingent on the scar's size and location. Once the healing process is complete, the improvements in scar appearance are generally permanent.

Ideal Candidates

Am I a good candidate for scar revision surgery?

Scar revision surgery may be a viable option if you are in good overall health, lack active skin conditions, and have previously attempted topical scar treatments without achieving your desired results. It is particularly effective for addressing stubborn and unattractive surgical incisions, burns, or acne scars.


Non-Surgical Scar Treatment

Some patients may be candidates for bioCorneum®+, an advanced silicone treatment formulated with SPF 30 to minimize the appearance of scars and protect against the sun's potentially aggravating effects on maturing scars, such as redness (erythema) and hyperpigmentation. This silicone gel is designed to prevent and manage hypertrophic (raised, red) scars and keloids. It can be applied to scars resulting from cosmetic and surgical procedures, trauma, wounds, and burns, effectively addressing old and new scars.

Upon application, bioCorneum+'s patented gel rapidly dries, forming an invisible silicone sheet over the affected area. This breathable, flexible, and waterproof layer adheres to the stratum corneum (the outer layer of dead skin cells), providing hydration and protection to the underlying tissue and facilitating scar maturation through regular collagen synthesis cycles. The patented silicone formulation in bioCorneum+ has been shown to flatten, soften, smooth scars, reduce discoloration, and alleviate itching, pain, and discomfort associated with scars, regardless of whether they are old or new. With its patented silicone technology and high-protection sunscreens, bioCorneum+ ensures an optimal healing environment for all scars, promoting aesthetically pleasing outcomes.

Diverse Approaches

Your Scar Revision Procedure

At our practice in Miami Scar revision procedures are performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the technique used. Scar excision involves the precise removal of the scar, with subsequent suturing of the edges to achieve a seamless closure. In skin grafts, often employed for burn scars, the scarred region is excised, and a piece of skin from another part of the body is transplanted to replace the removed area and meticulously stitched in place, a process akin to skin flap surgery. On the other hand, dermabrasion is a skin-resurfacing method that employs a rapidly rotating device to strip away the outer skin layer. This procedure stimulates the growth of new, smoother-looking skin in place of the removed layer. Laser scar removal, a non-surgical approach, utilizes a focused beam of light to eliminate scar tissue or create micro-injuries, encouraging collagen production and enabling the body to generate new, smoother skin.

Smooth Healing

Scar Revision Recovery and Aftercare

Following scar revision, proper aftercare is essential for the healing process. Your surgeon will provide detailed instructions on caring for the treated area. This may include keeping the area clean and avoiding sun exposure. Following these guidelines is crucial to ensure optimal healing and the best possible outcome. Depending on the nature of the scar, follow-up appointments may be scheduled to address the scar in stages. FusionMD is dedicated to supporting your recovery to provide significant improvements in the appearance of the scar.

Experience Renewal
