More About the Scar Revision Procedure
While it might seem somewhat counterintuitive that one can minimize the appearance of a scar by way of a surgical procedure, it’s actually quite possible! Dr. Doshi, a double board-certified plastic surgeon, brings years’ of experience and an impressive amount of training to the table, and he focuses on subtle, conservative results.
Scar revision surgery tends to be relatively quick, with local or topical anesthetic employed in instances where surgical excision is necessary. For excision, Dr. Doshi makes an incision along the outline of the original scar, before closing the wound in a way that actively prevents the formation of tension on the skin, allowing it to heal in a way that avoids the formation of new, noticeable scarring.
What’s the Recovery Process Like?
The initial recovery process after scar revision surgery at Dr. Doshi’s Long Island office is typically about a week or two. After this time, you’ll have your sutures removed if they were used, and will then continue your healing process over the course of the next several weeks. Dr. Doshi and his team will work closely with you, providing you with specific aftercare instructions, and monitoring your progress to ensure that you’re healing properly.
