SCAR REVISION AND MOLE REMOVAL

Purpose

Whether you are unhappy with the appearance of a mole, a post-surgical scar, or a defect from an accident, surgical or non-invasive revision can be done to significantly improve the appearance of an unsightly scar.

Procedure

There are various modalities to improve skin texture, contour, and color.  This includes surgical excision or revision, skin resurfacing, steroid injections, medical interventions, fillers, or any combination of the above.  After consultation with Dr. Ladner, he will recommend a plan on how to improve the appearance of the scar, the procedure can usually be performed under local anesthesia in less than 1 hour.

Recovery

There is little to no downtime with this procedure, and in most cases you should be able to resume your normal activities immediately following the surgery.  An occlusive dressing may be placed after the procedure and will be removed in a few days. Wounds heal faster in moist and clean environments, so it will be important to follow the care instructions given to you.  Sutures are removed within 1 week of surgery.
