As a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Rose brings to each procedure an eye for detail, expertise in a range of techniques, and a supportive bedside manner that prioritizes patient comfort and safety. Learn more about his work and what you can expect in your procedure.
Restoring Aesthetics. Improving Comfort.
Dr. Rose’s general approach to scar revision is to make over an area of unsightly skin into a much less obtrusive scar. Some common techniques he uses include:
- Removing the unwanted scar and replacing it with a clean scar that should fade over time.
- Repositioning the scar in a less noticeable location.
- Creating a more camouflaged appearance by breaking up a broad linear scar.
Come to our Corpus Christi offices for an initial consultation about scar revision. During your visit, you’ll get to know Dr. Rose and share details about your medical history. If you are prone to hypertrophic or keloid scarring, please offer this information, as these conditions can affect the outcome of surgical procedures.
Dr. Rose will also conduct an examination of the area you’d like to address. Assessing the condition of the scar, learning about its source, and understanding your medical background helps him plan your procedure and ensure that you’re a good candidate for surgery.
Your Experience with Scar Revision
Dr. Rose conducts procedures at local Corpus Christi hospitals as well as at our state-of-the-art facility. Many patients prefer to have their procedure with us, both for the cost savings and for the privacy, care, and professional atmosphere our facility offers. You’ll have a chance to make these decisions in advance of your surgery as well as the opportunity to learn about post-surgical care.
Scar revision generally takes place under local anesthetic and lasts anywhere from 1–2 hours depending on the size of the area and the complexity of the surgery. Dr. Rose works efficiently but spends the time necessary to create natural-looking, subtle, and smoother features.
With a scar revision, it’s important that you follow all of our post-operative instructions for the best outcome possible. In particular, we advise that you keep the surgical site out of sunlight or covered with sunblock until it has healed fully.
After your recovery, it’s what you don’t see in a final result that matters. The site of the surgery should fade over time and become less noticeable, giving you a more aesthetically appealing appearance.
