Smooth Out Scars, Start Out Fresh

Scar revision is a highly individualized plastic surgery procedure that can improve your appearance by significantly minimizing scar tissue, and board-certified surgeon Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS routinely performs scar revision surgery for patients in Newport Beach and the surrounding areas, who are seeking aesthetic improvement and smoother skin, and want to finally say goodbye to the frustrating presence of scars.

Who are Candidates for Scar Revision Surgery?

Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS has a vast amount of experience with scar revision surgery, and he’ll work closely with you during your surgical consultation to design a removal plan best suited to your scar revision needs.

Scar revision surgery is a suitable procedure for all ages and it’s likely a great choice for you if you’re in Newport Beach or the surrounding areas, and:

  • You are self-conscious about a scar anywhere on your body
  • You are physically and mentally stable
  • You possess realistic goals and expectations for your scar revision surgery

How Does Scar Revision Work?

A combination of scar revision techniques may be required to revise, reduce, or correct your scar, and Dr. Wirth offers both surgical and non-surgical revision methods to patients in Newport Beach and the surrounding areas. The most appropriate scar revision procedure will depend on the size, type, and age of your scar, and some patients do not require surgery at all, instead benefitting significantly from skin resurfacing, skincare, and/or injectable treatments.

If surgery is required, Dr. Wirth will likely use one of three techniques: fusiform excision surgery, partial or serial excision, or local flap surgery. Through these techniques, Dr. Wirth will either remove scar tissue utilizing a scalpel, in one or more surgeries, or he will use the skin surrounding the scar to conceal the scarred area. Each of these techniques will require either a local or general anesthesia, depending upon Dr. Wirth’s recommendation.

What Happens After Scar Revision?

Following your scar revision surgery, you’ll experience some swelling, tightness, and discomfort, and Dr. Wirth may prescribe pain medication to alleviate any significant pain. Additionally, you will be required to wear and regularly change a dressing that will cover the treated area. Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS will provide you with more specific and personalized postoperative instructions following your scar revision.

Localized swelling, tightness, and discomfort will subside within a week or two, and the results of scar revision surgery will be permanent, however, it may take several months to a year before the final results of surgery are apparent as the new scar begins to heal and fade. Non-surgical scar revision techniques such as injectable fillers or dermabrasion, as examples, may require more than one treatment to maintain optimal results.
