Scar Revision

Unsightly scars as a result of previous acne, blister, injury or infection are permanent and can impede movement or alter your appearance. There are numerous factors affecting scar formation, such as your skin type, the location of scar and the severity of the wound. Skin pigmentation, abnormal directions, texture and raised overgrowths of scar tissue (keloids) all make a scar more noticeable. At Allure Aesthetic Surgery of Beverly Hills, Dr. David Shamouelian, a highly-experienced face plastic surgeon, offers scar revision treatment to improve your appearance and restore function.

Scar Revision Procedure

Depending on the scar’s complexity and location, scar revision procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia or intravenous sedation and takes a few hours to complete. Dr. Shamouelian offers various options for scar revision, such as laser, injectable or surgical treatments. The type of treatment required is determined based on the size, location and type of the scar. Scar revision treatment’s main goal is to minimize and change the scar’s texture for it to blend with the surrounding skin.

What to Expect After the Procedure

Most of our patients at Allure report
significant nasal improvements
within three to six weeks following
the septoplasty. Minimum pain and
discomfort is normal during the
recovery period. Typically, patients
return to work a day or two after
the surgery, but we recommend
patients to refrain from any
strenuous activities for about a
week.

How it works

Most septoplasty for deviated
septum takes about an hour to
complete and may be done under
local or general anesthesia. The two
types of septoplasty procedures are
the traditional procedure, which
involves the open technique, and
the minimally invasive internal
procedure. Both procedures involve
lifting the mucus membrane,
repositioning or removing the bone
or the cartilage that is blocking the
airway, and then replacing the
mucus membrane and stitching it
back in place.

Cost

This procedure is covered by most
major health insurance providers. If
this does not apply to you, the cost
of septoplasty for deviated septum
depends on each patient’s unique
and how complicated the required
procedure is. Feel free to discuss
your concerns about your insurance
plan and costs during your initial
consultation at Allure. For more
