Scar Revision in Evansville and Jasper, IN
Having scars after an accident or surgery can be constant reminders of previous pain. Some of our SouthernIndiana, Northern Kentucky, and Illinois patients also experience scars that itch or rub against clothing, causing them a great deal of discomfort. A scar revision surgery performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Flannagan at Flannagan Plastic Surgery could be the solution for all Evansville and Jasper residents who want to eliminate scars and the uncomfortable, embarrassing feelings that accompany them.
What is Scar Revision Surgery?
Some people have scars with raised features or ones that are very large and prominent. Scar revision surgery is designed to reduce the size and shape of these lesions to make them less noticeable. Some revision procedures are also effective at fading scars, so the color more closely matches the surrounding skin. Scar revisions may require local or general anesthesia, and depending upon the characteristics of the scar, may be performed in under an hour.
Benefits of Scar Revision Surgery
Scar revision surgery can:
- Provide you with greater self-confidence by eliminating unsightly scars
- Eliminate the chaffing or itching caused by the scar rubbing against your clothes
- Reduce the chances of a scar regularly becoming infected
Is Scar Revision Surgery Right for Me?

If you answered “yes” to either of these two questions, you might be a good candidate for scar revision surgery.
Elements of a Scar Revision Surgery
Each procedure is different based on the configurations of the scar, the condition of your skin, and other factors. After evaluating your scar, Dr. Flannagan will customize a surgical technique just for you, and will then explain what he plans to do and why.
