Scar Revision

The appearance of scars from previous trauma, surgery, or injury can sometimes be improved by excision and re-closure under controlled conditions. In some situations, the orientation of a scar or its shortened length can be improved with small "flaps" called z-plasties. In other situations, scars can be blended into the natural features of the face. Torn earlobes can also be repaired.
