Scar Revision in Sugar Land
Fixing Imperfections for Over Two Decades
Most people live with scars on their bodies for years. Generally, they’re small or in an inconspicuous area that doesn’t cause concern. Unfortunately, some scars are permanent and are in very obvious places. The injury that caused the scar may have been treated very inadequately and sutured poorly. There may also have been extensive tissue damage or infection that impeded healing and made the resulting scar unsightly.
Most people don’t realize that unsightly scars can almost always be improved in appearance. That’s why we welcome you to speak with our board-certified surgeon regarding your concerns about an unattractive scar. Dr. Kutty will spend the time to educate you about why your scar turned out the way that it did, and will help you understand your current problem, what characteristics make it obvious, and what can be done to improve it.
Don’t let scars ruin your confidence, call our office at (281) 815-2277 to book a scar revision consultation.
Surgical Scar Treatment
Scar revision surgery is a simple procedure that can be done same-day in our office. After local anesthesia is applied to numb the area, Dr. Kutty will remove the scar using meticulous technique to carefully close the area and restore a flat contour. He will make the line as narrow as possible in order to be better concealed. Scar revision is a short process that requires no downtime. Other aspects of care will include creams, silicone sheeting or injections to maintain and further improve your results.
Non-Surgical Scar Treatment
Not all scar treatments involve surgery. If Dr. Kutty feels you’ll obtain an excellent result with other means, he will tell you so. The team at Luxe Plastic Surgery will not try to talk you into surgery you don’t need. If your best option is through another type of service, we will tell you.
Some of the non-surgical options we offer for scar revision are:
- Injecting steroids or other medications
- Topical creams containing silicone or medications to decrease pain and itching
- Ultrasound treatments
- Silicone sheeting
Types of Scars
A common reason for patients to see Dr. Kutty about fixing an unattractive scar is actually because of a prior cosmetic surgery operation. When done by inexperienced surgeons, scars may be in highly visible areas, sutured so that they stretch out, healed poorly, or are crooked. In many cases, improvement is best achieved without surgery. In fact, Dr. Kutty will actually recommend against surgery if he feels that another treatment would yield a better result.
Some of the most common types of scars that benefit from revision surgery are:
- C-section scars
- Abdominal surgery scars
- Joint replacement surgery scars
- Heart surgery scars
- Ear piercing scars
