San Diego Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Tom Pousti Talks About Scar Revision
Each person is unique and the way one person scars may be much different from the way another person may scar. Scar revision is performed after the body has had time to heal itself (usually 1 year or so after the initial trauma). Dr. Pousti will meet you at the initial consultation and let you know if a scar revision would be of benefit to you. Frequently, a scar revision can be performed in our office under local anesthetic, allowing you to go home soon after the procedure.
