Scar Revision: Patient Review on Real Self

Posted Jul 14 2009 12:00am

“I had been consulting with many local plastic surgeons to revise a wide, dented scar that I had on my leg. One doctor suggested tissue expanders but the price was ten thousand dollars which was too much for me, so then I consulted with another doctor which convinced me to have Restylane injected in my scar to improve the dent but that still made no difference. I continued to consult with other doctors that gave me no hope because they would tell me that my scar was too wide for revision.

I was ready to give up when I found my Dr’s web page and saw he had revised a scar similar to mine. I am really glad that I went to him. I will always be so thankful to him since he was the one that was able to improve the appearance of my scar after the scar excision, now my scar is as thin as a pencil line and there is no more dent and it is already fading away. He is the best of the best.”

Wow. Here’s a nice review of a scar revision operation I did for a patient on Real Self. How kind. Restylane really does very little for depressed scars. Wide scars are best addressed by revision in my opinion.

Best Regards,

John Di Saia MD
