Facial Scar Revision

New York NY Facial Plastic Surgeon

Scars are a natural skin reaction when the body has been injured or damaged. Falling down and scraping the knees or elbows, surgery needed after breaking a bone, or an injury caused by an object or tool are all common scars. Many people view scars from these incidents as “battle signs” and they are proud of the stories behind them. However, there are some scars that are quite personal and devastating. Scars that occur on the face are often not easy to conceal, and they can cause those inflicted to feel self-conscious and embarrassed. Many facial scars are a result of severe acne from teenage or young adult years; however, many people have facial scarring as a result of tragedy or deformity. Dr. Maurice Khosh, MD, in Manhattan is dedicated to provide individualized treatment for those who wish to have facial scar revision. Dr. Khosh offers the most precise surgical scar revision to erase the scars that bring about emotional pain.

Poor healing of the skin, picking at acne blemishes, car accidents, and even being attacked are the most common causes of facial scarring. Some scars heal almost unperceivably, yet there are some that remain visible and even become more disfiguring over time. Scars can be raised, recessed, differ in texture or color from the surrounding skin, and can be any shape or size. Those with darker skin pigmentation are more susceptible to developing larger and disfiguring scars than those with fair skin. All scars occur on an individualized basis, and there is no sure way to determine how someone’s skin will react to healing and developing scars.

Dr. Maurice Khosh, MD, is an expert in facial scar revision. His expertise has allowed many patients to achieve outstanding success in repairing the appearance of their face through scar revision. The skin at the ears, jaw line, shoulders, neck, and central chest is predisposed to developing keloid scars that can be troublesome due to their aesthetic effects and the functional disturbance that they can cause. If you have any type of scar on your face or upper body that you are bothered by, please contact Dr. Khosh in Manhattan to schedule a consultation to address your concerns.

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
