Scar Revision

Even a sore as small as a pimple can leave a scar on your face. Scarring is the body’s natural healing process, yet it can leave the surface of the skin deformed. Burns, acne, lacerations and many other injuries and illnesses can produce scar tissue on your face that can impact your self-confidence. Facial reconstruction for scar revision is an option to reduce the appearance of this left behind scar tissue and help you to regain your self-esteem.

Removing or reducing the appearance of scar tissue is more complicated than it may sound. Some facial scars may take several procedures to effectively reduce the visible scar damage. Dr. Khosh is a renowned reconstructive facial plastic surgeon that has extensive experience in scar revision techniques to give you back the smooth skin you had before the injury.

Case Study

This 25 year old man had suffered a traumatic injury to his chin. The skin and muscle layers had healed in an irregular way causing a depressed appearing scar with adjacent soft tissue swelling causing a very obvious deformity. During scar revision, the muscle layers were repaired and the skin was re approximated precisely.

Scar Removal Surgery

Facial scars can range from thick scar tissue of keloid or hypertrophic scars to deep depressions. Each scar removal needs to be approached individually as no two patients are exactly alike. Dr. Khosh will take the time to examine your facial scars and devise a treatment option that will work best for the particular type of scar, your skin and the location. In some cases, there may also need to be facial or feature reconstruction surgery in combination with scar revision treatment.

In most cases, scars must heal for 12 months or more before revision treatments begin. If you are ready to begin seeking scar revision treatment, contact the office of Dr. Khosh in Manhattan to schedule your private consultation.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

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!
Jackie C.

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.
