Scar Revision/Therapies

Scarring is a concern for most patients who are having or have had a surgical procedure. The plastic surgeons at the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery offer effective ways to improve the apperance of existing scars and advanced products that aid in the healing of incisions to minimize the resulting scars. Women and men trust our surgeons for optimal results from scar revision and scar therapy in Rochester, NY.

embrace®

Surgical Scar Removal

Sometimes, there is also the option to remove scars through surgery. In this case, scars must be at least a year old and will be surgically removed from the skin. A consultation appointment is necessary to evaluate the scar and decide if a surgical procedure will be beneficial for each specific situation.
