About Scar Revision Treatment
If you have noticeably large scars or tiny scars that will never go away on their own, you may be a great candidate for scar revision surgery at Inspire Aesthetics. We help patients of all ages improve the appearance of their scars from trauma or leftover surgical wounds where the surgeon did not take precaution for scars. We offer our patients a consultation for scar revision surgery in our office in Delray Beach, FL. While our talented and experienced plastic surgeons cannot make your scars go away completely, we can assess the issue and make a plan to minimize the appearance of your scars (anywhere on your body). A scar revision may be a series of cosmetic surgeries and treatments performed all at once or in stages. We also keep in mind that whatever surgery or treatment you choose, we will make sure it will not damage the skin surrounding the scar itself.
Types of Scars
Since there are various scar revision procedures that address different types of scars, it is beneficial to recognize the correct type a patient has in order to treat it effectively.
- Atrophic scars take on a sunken look and are usually caused by surgery, acne, trauma or chickenpox.
- Keloid scars occur due to cell overproduction following skin injury. They are raised, thick and have a red-purple color and extend beyond the original wound. They can be itchy or painful.
- Hypertrophic scars are raised and red in color but don’t expand beyond the wound area. They can restrict movement.
- Scar contractures are usually the result of burns and lead to the skin shrinking, tightening and cause movement restriction.
"BREAST RECONSTRUCTION WITH IMPLANTS - HE HAS A GREAT BEDSIDE MANNOR....SEEMS CARING....AND ATTAINED RESULTS BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Sep 05, 2008
"This facility gets 10 stars from me!! My first experience with Inspire was for a pretty extensive cosmetic procedure that I was beyond nervous about- breast lift, reduction, and augmentation. At the age of only 29, my breasts were in very bad shape after losing a great deal of weight. However, Dr. Drew absolutely NAILED it!! I could not be happier with the outcome and am incredibly grateful for not only his expertise, but for how kind and supportive the entire staff was towards me throughout the process. If you are looking for an honest group of doctors to help improve yourself, this is the facility to check out! You will understand the second you walk in :)"- C.P. / Google / Jul 21, 2020
"Absolutely perfect place to transform into the healthier you. I had the privilege of being at my best friends side during her breast cancer journey. After beating cancer, it was Dr Goodwin’s job to make her feel beautiful again...which is not easy after all chemo and surgery do to a body. But, HE DID IT!!! His work is spectacular and his staff are great support. The facility is clean, the staff are professional yet personable and Dr. Goodwin makes you feel comfortable at such a vulnerable time. Standing by my best friend and seeing her light up when her new body was revealed was priceless."- J.S. / Yelp / Oct 22, 2020
"I absolutely love Inspire Aesthetics. I live in London and come back here for my botox, Katie is so nice and informative. They educated me through my first time getting botox and now guide me as I continue to use it and what areas to focus on. Highly recommend and especially if you are new to botox, they will make you feel so comfortable and guide you on what they think is best for you. Quality service at a quality price."- M. / Google / Oct 21, 2020
"From the minute I walked out of the gorgeous facilities at Inspire, I've been meaning to gush about how great they are but I'm finally doing it now. Chris, who's a nurse practitioner, administered my cosmetic procedures and I absolutely love the results! As others have noted, he's very honest and doesn't oversell - in fact -both him and Erika at the front desk wrote up different options showing a lower-priced vs a higher-priced choice. As for aesthetics, he has an artist's eye and strives to maintain the balance of a face to create a beautiful, natural-looking result, rather than some of the rather, shall we say, plumped-up ladies you see waltzing around SE Florida 😏. He took his time with me and even let the session run over it's time due to my indecision. To sum up, I've been to a handful of Dr. Offices /medspas before and have never come close to experiencing the comfort level, integrity, and wonderful results of Chris at Inspire!"- R. / Google / Oct 20, 2020
What to Expect
Depending on the type of scar that a patient has, along with the size, location and its appearance, a surgeon can employ several different procedures. For surface scars, you may be prescribed topical ointments, tapes or external compression to improve discoloration. With shave excision, a surgical shaver is used to remove the top part of the scar to leave a more even surface. Sunken or depressed scars can be injected with various substances to improve texture and overall appearance. Dermabrasion, light therapy, and chemical peels can also be deployed to improve the appearance of scars. There are other various procedures that can be performed to help minimize the appearance of scars. For scars that require a more invasive approach, surgery may be required.
We can perform out-patient scar revision surgeries in our surgical facility at Inspire Aesthetics. Depending on the type of scar you have and the techniques for revision selected, you may have a local or a general anesthetic. In a treatment planning session, your board-certified plastic surgeon will create a customized surgical plan to meet your needs.
