Scar revision requires a skilled, experienced, and sensitive plastic surgeon who can provide the best possible repair over a previously operated site while improving the cosmetic outcome. Dr. Mascaró has performed numerous scar revisions on both adults and children. His extensive background in facial trauma repair makes him an expert in both primary and revision work - whether the damage was due to lacerations or facial fractures.
This surgery is often more than just cosmetic. Besides repairing the skin, the muscles and bone structure of the face must be functioning normally. Dr. Mascaró will spend time with you during your consultation to review all of your options. Outcomes are improved not just with surgical precision, but also with exquisite post operative care. Dr. Mascaró and his office will ensure that you know what to do each step of the way for the best possible outcome.
Why think about scar revision?
- Restore the scarred tissue to a normal appearance after injury or the effects of previous surgery
- Repair facial lacerations of skin and/or muscle tissue
No two patients are the same. Dr. Mascaró will examine your injuries and determine the best surgical plan to provide you with the best results possible. He will tell you exactly what to expect before, during, and after your surgery. Dr. Mascaró understands the emotional stress associated with facial injuries, as such, he will take his time to ensure that you feel comfortable with the plan prior to proceeding.
For most procedures, a local anesthetic will be enough, but for more extensive repairs, the surgery is performed using conscious sedation, similar to that performed during colonoscopies or other procedures such as rhinoplasty and facelift.
