Scar Revision Columbus
Many factors determine the severity of scarring. Some of the most significant include the size of the wound, its depth, blood supply to the area, the skin tone, and the way the body heals. Scars may take 18 months to 2 years to fully mature and fade. If after this time you are still dissatisfied with the appearance of a scar, you may consider surgical revision. No surgeon can completely remove a scar, but often the appearance of a scar can be improved. Scar revision is a surgical procedure specifically used to improve the appearance of scars that have not responded to medical treatments such as cortisone drugs, steroids, or skin gels. Dr. Lichten uses several surgical techniques based on what he feels is best for you. Call to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lichten to discuss which surgical option may be right for you.
I felt totally at ease. Everyone was so nice and friendly that it was as if I had known them for a while…Probably the nicest staff I’ve ever dealt with.
