Many types of scars can form on the skin. Patients in and around New York City may be faced with scarring on the face or body that can make them feel self-conscious. When problems such as this occur due to scars, it is important for patients to learn about effective scar treatments that can reduce or revise the visibility for full removal or reduction.
Dr. Edmund Kwan is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon who understands the importance of looking and feeling your best. He has helped both children and adults in reducing or eliminating scarring from trauma. He is also experienced in reducing hypertrophic and keloid scars, which are often large, widespread, and can be a source of embarrassment.
During an initial consultation appointment, Dr. Edmund Kwan can determine the type of treatment best for handling a specific scar. He will examine the area in which the scar is present and ask patients about the scar itself. Has it changed shape or size? Has it been there since birth or developed later? Is it uncomfortable, itchy, or bothersome in any way? Once Dr. Edmund Kwan has evaluated the scar, he can then make suggestions as to how to treat it.
Scar treatments will vary depending on the size, location, and type of scar. Dr. Edmund Kwan may provide skin grafting or may remove the scarred tissue and suture the area to reduce the present scarring. This can all be determined during the initial visit and evaluation, and patients will be educated on the suggested method of treatment from a quality professional who has years of experience diagnosing and treating many types of scarring on the skin.
