Serving patients in, and welcoming others from around Eastern NC, Dr. Eskra is a board certified plastic surgeon who performs scar revision for those who wish to minimize any scarring.
What Is Scar Revision?
Scarring is a natural part of the body’s healing process following an injury. The extent of a scar often depends on multiple factors, such as the wound’s nature, its depth, location, and individual characteristics like age and skin pigmentation. While there are numerous over-the-counter products claiming to reduce scars, the professional and tailored approach at Eskra Plastic Surgery provides results that are more pronounced and lasting.
The Benefits of Scar Revision?
Dr. Eskra is dedicated to ensuring your skin radiates its natural beauty. Our lesion removal services are a testament to this commitment. The procedure involves meticulous removal by a qualified physician, often collaborating with a pathologist to examine the excised tissue microscopically. This thorough approach underscores Eskra Plastic Surgery’s dedication to comprehensive skin care.
Your journey to healthier skin commences with an in-depth consultation at our state-of-the-art facility. During this session, Dr. Eskra meticulously assesses the lesion and the encompassing skin region. The subsequent removal techniques employed are tailored based on this evaluation, with procedures like skin grafts being considered for extensive lesions.
Considerations and Recovery:
Before considering scar revision, we advise patients to wait for at least two to three months post-injury. This timeframe allows the wound to heal comprehensively. Depending on the scar’s nature and the surrounding skin’s condition, the treatment method is chosen. In cases where there’s significant skin loss, Dr. Eskra might recommend additional procedures like skin grafting. Post-procedure, patients typically undergo a brief recovery phase that lasts several days, during which they might have sutures and dressings. Most find themselves resuming their regular activities, including work or school, shortly after. Dr. Eskra ensures that every patient is well-informed about post-operative care, emphasizing precautions such as limited sun exposure.
Who Is A Candidate For Scar Revision?
Before anything else, a detailed medical history and examination of the scar is essential. This will help in understanding the cause, age, and type of the scar. The scar should be fully matured before any revision is considered. This means waiting several months to a year after the injury or surgery that caused the scar. A mature scar is generally flat, pale, and no longer sensitive. Additionally, The skin around the scar should be free from active infections, breakouts, or other conditions.
