Some scars are cool to show off— especially when you’re five– but as you get older, those scars that you used to brag about to your friends on the playground, can now make you feel self-conscious. If you have a scar on or around your eyelid, it can be hard to disguise even with makeup. Luckily, with eyelid scar revision surgery from Dr. Daniel Tresley, you can get rid of your scar and gain back your self-esteem in no time. Read on to learn more.
What Is Eyelid Scar Revision Surgery?
The skin around your eyes is extremely sensitive and can be easily damaged— that’s why Dr. Daniel Tresley uses specialized scar revision surgical methods. Depending on the location and type of injury that you have, Dr. Tresley may recommend one of the following scar removal procedures:
- Surgical Excision
- Skin Grafts
- Flap Surgery
What Is Recovery Like?
The type of procedure that is used will indicate what your recovery will look like. However, because none of these methods are too invasive, your recovery should be relatively speedy. On average, you can expect to wear a bandage over your eye for a day or two as it heals which means that you won’t be able to drive or operate any heavy machinery. Once your bandage is removed, you will need to clean the area and apply the necessary medication as prescribed by Dr. Tresley.
What Are Results Like?
The results from scar revision surgery can vary based on what type of procedure Dr. Daniel Tresley used. However, as his top priority, Dr. Tresley will work to make sure that you get the best results possible and that your scar isn’t detectable. Remember that depending on the type of injury that caused the scar, the size and location of the scar, and your skin coloring, you may need more time to heal afterward.
