CHICAGO SCAR TISSUE EXCISION PATIENT PHOTOS

Scar Revision

32 year old before, 6 weeks after and 3 months after excision of old scar tissue. Note how much more narrow the scar is just by simply cutting it out and re-closing it


Scar Revision

32 year old before and 3 months after excision of old scar tissue. Note how the scar falls into the nasolabial folds (smile lines). This will be much more natural when she smiles and as she gets older.


The Scars:

Anytime a human being gets cut (with surgery or trauma), scars heal the following way: Initially they are red, raised and hard. Within 6-12 months, they are flat, white and soft. Younger people (<18 years old) have scars that might stay active or red for up to 2 years. Older people (>65 years old) have scars that might stay active or red for less than 3 months.
