What is eyelid scar revision?

What is eyelid scar revision?

It is a known fact that any type of injury that cuts the skin or surgical treatment can leave behind scarring. When Dr. Daniel S. Tresley performs his facial surgeries, he plans the procedure in a way to ensure that remaining scarring that occurs will be disguised in the natural folds or areas of the face where they will not be seen. If a patient has had a previous surgery and is unhappy with the scarring, it may be time to discuss the advantages of eyelid scar revision. This is another treatment that will help the previous scar fade or remove it entirely, depending on the unique situation.

Why might I choose eyelid scar revision?

Patients who have plastic surgeries performed are often interested in reducing the appearance of scars with strategic planning on incision placement. When a plastic surgeon who is inexperienced provides surgery to a patient and does not successfully hide scarring, it can make patients regret having their work done. Patients embarrassed by their scarring will want to work with a provider who can revise the surgery in a way to reduce the appearance of any scars. Dr. Daniel S. Tresley encourages patients to book a consultation appointment at his practice for a full evaluation to determine if eyelid scar revision procedures would be beneficial in restoring a natural appearance.
