Scar Revision Surgery

Your skin is unique. The way it reacts to trauma and develops scars is very different from the way another person's skin reacts. Varying in shape depending on the severity of the wound, scars that heal properly tend to become faint and silvery, so much so that they may be barely noticeable. However, sometimes excess or inadequate tissue develops during the healing process, creating scars that are prominent in both texture and colour. They can be aesthetically displeasing and a source of concern, particularly when they are visibly located, like on the face. While non-surgical technologies can help reduce their appearance, only surgical scar revision can achieve such dramatic results for you in a single procedure.

Enjoy a beautiful complexion without scars. Call 905-849-4282 to book your medical appointment with Dr. Stephen Brown for scar revision surgery. Dr. Brown has over 25 years of experience treating unsightly scars, making them less prominent for an enhanced complexion. You won't have to hide your scars with makeup anymore.

Scar revision is performed after you have had time to heal (usually a year or so after the initial trauma). By this time, the tissues that create your scar should be strong enough so that your wound is totally repaired. While all scars are permanent, the aim of your treatment is to make your scar less noticeable — so much so that you and others can barely see it. Like most of our patients, you may experience a 90% chance of visible improvement even if you have hypertrophic scars or keloids (the most problematic type of scarring).

Frequently, a scar revision can be performed in our office under local anesthetic, allowing you to go home soon after the procedure.
Dr. Brown will meet you at the initial consultation and let you know if a scar revision would be of benefit to you.
