What does the procedure entail?
Dr. Gurley will help you decide what would best help your scar blend. This depends on its placement on your face or body. She is up to date on the latest technology available, and will use a variety of techniques to provide a more uniform appearance for the skin.
Are there any alternatives to this procedure?
Some topical creams can help a scar fade, but for many scars, surgical correction is the best option.
What can I expect?
The surgery can be done under general or local anesthetic, depending on the scar, the scar's location, and if the procedure is combined with another procedure. Patients return home the same day and can usually return to normal activities, including lifting and bending, after about a week of recovery.
Who is a good candidate?
You may consider scar revision if:
You have a large, discolored, puckered or bulging scar from an injury or a medical procedure.
Real Artistic Outcomes
Noticeable scars can distract from your natural beauty and can be frustrating or distressing for patients. Dr. Gurley's surgical skills allow her to use precise techniques to minimize the size, appearance, or color of scars in various locations on the body so that it blends more seamlessly with the tone and texture of the surrounding skin. If your scar is indented, puckered or bulging, Dr. Gurley can often smooth the scar to better blend with surrounding tissue, which helps to camouflage the appearance of a scar.
