Scar Revision 

Poor scar formation can be caused by injury, previous surgery, or previous repair of a laceration. Scars are permanent and can vary in size, shape, color or appearance.  Some people have unattractive scars that they would like improved. This is most common in areas of cosmetic importance such as the face, hands, arms or legs. Scar revision is a procedure to alter the scar that you have to improve the appearance or position of the scar. Although health insurance providers sometimes cover scar revision, it is important to review your individual policy of benefits. Dr. Colque works with most of the insurance companies in Wisconsin as an in-network provider.

Reasons For Considering Scar Revision:

  • Unattractive Scars of the Face or other parts of the body.
  • Raised or Widened Scars.
  • Keloid Scars.
  • Scars that cause tightness, itching or pain.

Scar Revision Procedure:

Scar revision can be approached in several different ways. Usually, scar revision involves excision of the existing scars and careful post-procedure care of the new incision lines. 

Recovery from scar revision depends on the length and size of the scar being treated.
