Scar Revision – The Surgery

There are a variety of techniques which may be used for scar revision including excision, punch grafting, soft tissue augmentation, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermabrasion. With excision techniques, the scar tissue is removed and the incision is closed. Punch grafting, which is often used for deep acne scarring, involves the removal of the scar tissue and then either replacing or suturing closed the remaining tissue. Soft tissue augmentation involves injections of collagen, fat or other fillers to plump up depressed scars. Skin resurfacing techniques like laser resurfacing, chemical peels, microdermabrasion and dermabrasion remove the upper layers of scarred tissue to soften the appearance of the scar and make it less visible.
