Revision for Complex Scar Tissue

Scar Treatment Johns Creek GAIf you have highly visible scars from an injury, infection or previous surgery, you may not like the end result. It is understandable to feel self-conscious about any kind of skin blemish. Scars are especially problematic for some patients because they can impact both appearance and functionality around the affected area.

Scar revision is a specialist area of cosmetic surgery that is designed to reduce the visible impact on damaged tissue. There are several potential causes for unsightly scar tissue formation. Poor incision techniques, the location and orientation of the scar, age at the point of injury or surgery, scarring disorders and genetics are just some of the contributing factors to how damaged tissue heals.

Seeking Scar Consultation

The first thing you should do is seek scar consultation to determine the best treatment approach. Trusting your care to an experienced scar revision specialist is crucial. If the correct procedures and techniques are not used, treatment can result in further damage and prominence of scar tissue.

The specialist will carry out a comprehensive exam that includes assessing skin type, medical history and predisposition to genetic scarring such as keloids. This assessment is an important part of the treatment plan. Choosing the correct medicinal or surgical options will determine levels of success for any methodology.

For example, keloids describes the over production of collagen when a wound is healing. Standard revision techniques are not recommended for this type of scar tissue. There is also a high probability of keloids reoccurring if the specialist does not use techniques or procedures that are effective for revising keloid scarring.

Treatment for Complex Scarring

Scar management is the best method for improving the shape and appearance of affected tissue, in most cases. It is also crucial that scar revision treatments are not performed on immature tissue. Scarring must complete in order to achieve optimal outcomes from any approach. This process can take over a year and will determine the final aesthetic of a scar.

There are numerous other factors to consider with complex scar revision. Dr. Myla Bennett Powell of Ederra Bella Plastic Surgery can provide a scar revision consultation at her Johns Creek, Georgia, offices.

Dr. Bennett is absolutely amazing! From the very beginning, I felt incredibly comfortable and at home. She is highly skilled and top notch with everything she does. The results of my liposuction were incredible and my skin has noticeably been transformed by Dr. Bennett's facials and skincare line. She is a highly skilled, extraordinarily gifted doctor with the most beautiful spirit and genuinely cares about each one of her patients. I give Dr. Bennett and her staff my highest recommendation. Her staff is always kind, courteous and professional.

Love the family like environment. My experience with the doctor and everyone in the office began with the follow up phone call from the online inquiry. Felt like I have known each of them for years. They made my experience so much easier than I thought it would have been. Just being in the office is a comforting beginning to my procedures. With the procedures that I did have I am quickly seeing some results. I would definitely recommend anyone to this establishment.

Let me first say that this place is so cute! The ambience is amazing. Amanda and her staff are extremely friendly, attentive and professional. Chanel performed a hydra facial with light therapy and I immediately saw results. I have been receiving compliments on my skin daily and I give all credit to Dr. Myla’s PrettyRX skincare line! Try Chanel and Dr. Myla out, you won’t regret it! Plus there’s plenty of free parking!

The Royal Treatment! From the moment you walk in the staff make you feel special. The Hydrafacial was beyond amazing and far exceeded my expectations. I'm still glowing! Chanel who did my facial was a complete joy, knowledgeable and very professional. Dr. Myla is a true Boss lady and rockstar physician. I can't wait to book my next appointment.

Dr. Myla Bennett is great. I found her on Instagram! After seeing many of her cases, I decided to make an appointment for a virtual consultation. I'm in NH where we don't have plastic surgeons that specialize in ethnic skin. Making that appointment was the best decision ever. She developed a regimen for me that I followed diligently. I never had horrible skin but Dr. Myla definitely put my skin on another level. I get compliments all the time...and I NEVER wear makeup. Her products are great too! Definitely give Dr. Myla a call, and don't hesitate if you are outside of GA.

Ederra Bella is the best! Dr. Myla is very knowledgeable and she goes well beyond the call of duty to make sure her patients are well-informed. The staff is very friendly and the second you walk into the office, you immediately feel like you’re part of the family. I have and will continue referring Ederra Bella for anyone seeking services related to skin care and plastic surgery. I do want to add, Dr. Myla has just launched her skin care line, PrettyRx and it is absolutely amazing. I’ve gotten so many compliments, from random people I see during the day to make-up and skin professionals, telling me about how great my skin is. The products are light, gentle and, most importantly, they work! If you want clear, pretty and youthful skin, PrettyRx is what you need.

Dr. Myla, is absolutely amazing, I trust her with my life. I had surgery and it ended up being two surgeries because of a issue she identified and made sure it got taken care of. Dr. Myla goes above and beyond to make her clients feel beautiful and important. I called and text her and she always answered and assisted with any questions, no matter the time.
