Scar Removal & Revision
Any damage to the skin or tissue underneath can result in a noticeable scar. Even a pimple can leave a scar behind if it does damage to the skin. Scars are a part of life, but some can be disfiguring or distracting, impacting your appearance and self-confidence. Some may even cause physical discomfort or functional issues. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer scar removal and revision through minimally invasive treatments and surgery at our medical center in Tysons Corner, VA.
Scar removal can be a complicated process. It is impossible to remove all scar tissue – the process of removal can result in more scar tissue formation. The goal is to reduce the appearance of the scar, whether that means moving or hiding the scar, removing some of the scar tissue or performing skin treatments to fade the scar’s appearance. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer advanced methods for scar removal to improve the appearance of the skin and tissue. Both plastic surgery and non-surgical treatments can be useful in scar removal and revision; we use both options to obtain the best results for our patients.
