Scar Revision Before and After

This patient had a trauma to her nose which was repaired by another physician in an emergency room, who referred the patient to Dr. Guy, a facial plastic surgeon. When she appeared to Dr. Guy her wound was breaking down. Proper wound care was initiated.

This is 6 weeks after initiating wound care, which shows the wound had shrunk in size but was still clearly noticeable.

The patient is 4 weeks out from the first stage of her scar revision. She underwent an excision of a part of her old scar followed by appropriate post operative wound care.

The patient is 8 weeks out from the second stage of her scar revision which involved the use of CO2 laser resurfacing.
