Once a scar forms, it is permanent, but may be made less visible through a variety of techniques, both surgical and nonsurgical.
A Z-Plasty, or scar revision, is a surgical procedure that can improve the cosmetic appearance of scars. It can elongate a contracted scar or rotate the scar tension lines, effectively repositioning the scar to make it less visible. In addition to a Z-Plasty, scar revisions may be accomplished using a combination of techniques, such as laser skin resurfacing, injections, topical applications and even dermal fillers. The goal of all scar revisions is to hide the scar in a current line or fold to make it less noticeable.
