Scar Revision & Removal Surgery In Clarksville, TN

Top-Rated Surgeon Offers Expert Care
& Procedures to Minimize Your Scars

Scars are the visible result after a wound has healed. Scars can often be unpredictable after an injury or surgery and it can be difficult to determine how a scar will look once it is fully formed. Some scars may fade and closely match the color of a person’s skin, becoming nearly invisible. However, other scars may become pink, red, recessed, or raised above the surface of the skin. Poor healing of a wound may result in highly visible or disfiguring scars. If you are bothered by your noticeable and perhaps unsightly scars, our scar revision and removal surgeon in Clarksville, TN, may have a solution for you.

The procedures that our practice offers are designed to minimize the appearance of your scar by making it more consistent with its neighboring skin tone and texture. Among plastic surgeons, Dr. Burgdorf is highly skilled in scar revision treatment. Although it is not possible to completely erase a scar once it has formed, our procedures can help minimize the scar’s appearance for a more even look.

Scar revision treatment options range from topical solutions to surgical scar revision, depending on your unique case. At Music City Plastic Surgery, Dr. Burgdorf will evaluate your scar and skin health and recommend a scar removal treatment plan that is best suited to your personal needs.

Types of Scar Revision Treatments

The severity of the scarring – including the location, type, and size of the scar – determines what degree of improvement can be achieved with scar revision treatment. Dr. Burgdorf may also recommend a treatment plan that involves multiple scar revision techniques to help you achieve the best possible results.

Injection Treatments

If you are unhappy with the appearance of a concave scar, injection treatments can help by filling in the scar. Injectable treatment results typically last from three months to a few years, so periodic touch-up treatment is usually required to maintain your results. One type of injectable scar revision treatment is a steroid-based compound that inhibits the body from producing collagen. Steroid-based injections can improve the texture, size, and overall appearance of a raised scar or keloid. Another treatment is hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers such as Restylane or Juvéderm, a naturally occurring substance that can thicken the skin directly under the scar to improve its appearance.

What Are Topical Treatments?

Topical treatments typically include gels, creams, certain tapes, or external compression. These methods can help your wound heal or decrease your skin’s ability to generate abnormal pigment. Topical treatment is typically used to improve the look of developing or existing surface scars and irregular pigmentation. One topical agent that we highly recommend is bioCorneum+, the only FDA-approved scar treatment that is preferred by leading plastic surgeons.

Scar Surface Treatments

Dr. Burgdorf often uses surface treatments at Music City Plastic Surgery to improve the aesthetic appearance of scars. Surface treatments, such as chemical peels, can soften surface abnormalities and reduce blotchy pigmentation. These treatments are intended either to slough off the superficial skin layers or alter the nature of the tissue itself. The following techniques are common surface treatments used for scar revision:

  • Topical skin bleaching agents to lighten the color of the scar.
  • Scar revision surgery can improve the look of or possibly remove severe scars
  • Chemical peels remove the top layers of skin, revealing the fresh, smooth skin underneath

Microneedling Procedure

The minimally invasive microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) procedure can reduce the size and improve the appearance of scars. Microneedling uses tiny needles to create a controlled skin injury to encourage the production of new collagen and elastin. Depending on the severity and size of your scar, its appearance may be improved with just one simple microneedling procedure or with a series of microneedling appointments.

Dr. Burgdorf will review all scar revision and removal options with you and help you decide which method will help improve the appearance of your particular scar.
