New York Scar Revisions & Corrections

Scar Revisions & CorrectionsNote the name is scar revision — not scar removal. Nothing can totally eliminate major scars. But there are plastic surgery procedures Dr.Erlich can do that will do a lot to improve them.

The degree of improvement that may be achieved often depends on the type of scar you have. Scars come in all kinds, shapes, and sizes. Every scar is different, so the treatment is highly individualized.

The most common treatment performed at our New York and Connecticut cosmetic surgery offices is excision - which means delicately and precisely cutting out the scars tissue and reclosing with a delicate surgical technique leaving a much-improved, less noticeable scar.

Elevated scars are sometimes treated with injections of cortisone to smooth them down.

Depressed or indented scars sometimes require injections of collagen to raise them to the level of the surrounding skin.

Resurfacing with the carbon-dioxide laser may be the ideal solution for some irregular scars, as well as scars caused by acne or chicken pox.

If you would like to discuss your options for scar revision in New York, Dr. Erlich at Profiles & Contours invites you to request a consultation or call 212.861.4100 today to schedule an appointment today.
