Correction of Head, Neck and Facial Scars

Appropriate healing after surgery to the head, neck and face can vary significantly between individuals, and is dependent on both intrinsic (genetic) and extrinsic (diet, sun exposure, diabetes, smoking) hallmarks of the patient, and the quality of the reconstruction during prior surgery.

It is often difficult to predict, can lead to formation of unacceptable scars in a significant number of patients, with functional (stiffness and traction) and esthetic implications as a result.

At ANDSURGEONS, we have significant experience in surgical revision of scars from previous head, neck and facial surgery. Our approach in surgical scar revisions is to carefully analyze the presence or absence of intrinsic and extrinsic factors which may impair wound healing, combine this with careful analysis of reconstructive options, to present patients with the most optimal revision plan.

If possible, we always try to perform the surgery under local anesthesia, and the vast majority of patients is able to leave the hospital on the day of surgery.
