Scar revisions are a highly customized procedure. It's not possible to remove or completely erase a scar, but the goal of every scar revision is to alter the scar so that it's as inconspicuous as possible. In most cases, scar revisions are performed in the office and easily tolerated under local anaesthetic (freezing).
After the procedure
Post-operatively, there will be bruising that will last 2 weeks and swelling which can last anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months. Most patients return to work at 2 weeks and are asked to wear a compression garment for 4 weeks after their surgery.
Possible complications include hematoma, skin irregularities, infection, and asymmetry.
