Facial scars result from trauma, surgery, or burns to the facial skin. Scars can impair facial function such as the ability to open and close the eyes or mouth. Scars can also diminish ones confidence and self-esteem. While scars are generally considered permanent, facial scarring can often be corrected or improved with medical or surgical treatment. Scars can be faded, or surgically relocated to blend in with natural creases and shadows of the surrounding facial structures. Results of treatment can be dramatic, but depend on a number of factors that are best discussed with the physician. If you are interested in learning about your options, please schedule a personal consultation with one of our physicians.
