Scar Reduction Surgery in Minneapolis, MN

Feel Confident in Your Own Skin

What Is Scar Reduction Surgery?

From the hardly noticeable to the more extreme, all wounds heal by the formation of scars. For those larger and more noticeable scars, scar reduction surgery, also known as scar revision surgery, can provide increased confidence in your appearance. This restorative surgery is performed by our highly skilled Minnesota surgeons and is a simple and safe process.

Scar revision entails scarred tissue being removed and the resulting opening then being sutured closed. Your doctor may prescribe the use of a silicone scar cream following your surgery to encourage full healing. Once healed, the skin will appear smooth and restored to its former appearance.

Whether your scar is visible to everyone or just you, you have the choice to live without the reminder of your wound — and feel fully healed.
