What is Scar Revision?

Scar Revision, overseen by Dr. Kaweski, is a multifaceted treatment aiming to diminish the visibility of scars resulting from wound healing. From topical creams to surgical interventions, Scar Revision endeavors to align scar appearance with surrounding skin texture and color, though complete elimination is only sometimes achievable. While primarily cosmetic, Scar Revision becomes imperative for painful or functionally hindering scars, demanding medical attention to alleviate discomfort or functional limitations.

How does Scar Revision work?

Scar Revision by Dr. Kaweski commences with a comprehensive consultation to assess individual needs. Preoperative preparation involves discussing procedural details and addressing patient concerns. On surgery day, the chosen Scar Revision technique is executed, ensuring patient comfort under local or general anesthesia. Postoperatively, meticulous care is provided, with instructions on pain management and skin care. Recovery involves gradual scar maturation, with follow-up appointments to monitor progress and discuss further interventions if necessary.

Scar Revision Treatment Options

Injectable Fillers
Utilizing substances like Restylane or Bellafill, Dr. Kaweski addresses various facial scars, stimulating natural collagen production for enduring results.
Through laser resurfacing or microneedling, scar appearance transforms as collagen production is stimulated, diminishing scar visibility.
Layered closure techniques ensure a more natural integration into the skin for deep or jagged scars, promoting fading over time.
Effective for large scars, mainly burn scars, tissue expansion involves expanding healthy skin to replace scar tissue, enhancing both function and appearance.
By grafting harvested fat into scars, microfat grafting plumps and fills scars, which is particularly effective for acne scars, offering comprehensive aesthetic improvement.

Benefits of Scar Revision

Improved Color

Scar Revision techniques can help fade the color of scars, making them blend more seamlessly with surrounding skin for a natural appearance.

Reduced Size

Scar Revision procedures aim to minimize the size of scars, ensuring they are less conspicuous and more proportionate to the surrounding tissue.

Decreased Stiffness

Scar Revision can soften the texture of scars, reducing their stiffness and enhancing flexibility, improving comfort and range of motion.

Refined Texture

Patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment.

Thinner Appearance

Scar Revision procedures can reduce the thickness of scars, making them flatter and less raised, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing outcome.

Scar Revision Timeline and Process


During the initial consultation with Dr. Kaweski, patients discuss their concerns and goals regarding Scar Revision. Dr. Kaweski thoroughly examines the scar, evaluates medical history, and discusses available treatment options.
