Scar Revision: Scars can be a different color or can be depressed or elevated compared to the surrounding skin. A scar on the scalp can result in an area of baldness. Normal features may be distorted by scars. Various treatments or surgical revision can improve the unsightly features of many scars. Consult with a plastic surgeon certified by the american board of plastic surgery to learn about options.
