Scars Happen to Everyone
Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are the unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. If you have a scar that you are tired of looking at, call The Center for Plastic Surgery at MetroDerm, P.C.. Farzad R. Nahai, M.D. is an expert surgeon who specializes in scar revision surgery.
Scars Detract from the Appearance
Scars are the byproducts of wounds that have not healed properly. They can range in size and shape. Sometimes the color can really make them stand out. Some scars are raised, and some look like a depressed area of skin. The location of a scar is usually what prompts an individual to make an appointment with a surgeon. Scars can detract from otherwise lovely skin and appearance.
Keloid Scars Require Special Treatment
Some individuals are prone to keloid scarring which can be a challenge to treat. A keloid (key-loid) is a raised scar that can take months to form and can eventually become much larger than the original would. Dr. Nahai does a careful patient evaluation and examines the scar tissue to determine a treatment plan for patients troubled by keloid scars. He also educates his patients about how to avoid the problem in the future.
Scar Revision Surgery
The goal of scar revision surgery is to minimize the scar and make it less conspicuous so it blends with the surrounding skin tone and texture. Dr. Nahai’s surgical training and his artistic skill make him the perfect choice to evaluate your unsightly scar and diminish it. Don’t cover it up. Schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Nahai to see how you can improve the appearance of your scar and feel more confident.
