Dr. Harirchian is a reputable facial plastic surgeon who offers a full menu of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments to restore and enhance your appearance. When it comes to unsightly scars on the face, she takes a meticulous and personalized approach to minimize their appearance with facial reconstructive procedures. Your scar treatment will be based on factors such as the scar’s location, size, age and type. It is also important to consider whether or not your scar is simply a cosmetic concern or one that also compromises facial expressions or other functional features of your face. You can trust Dr. Harirchian to bring talent, skill and artistry to your scar revision surgery so that you can live a more confident life going forward.
Facial scars can develop as a result of previous surgeries, burns, accidents or certain medical conditions. Regardless of what caused your scar, Dr. Harirchian is exceptionally qualified to treat it appropriately and provide the most dramatic improvement in your appearance. There are a number of treatment options for scar revision, including but not limited to steroid injections to flatten a raised scar, direct surgical excision to narrow an extensive scar and surgical subcision to elevate an “ice pick scar.” Non-surgical treatments such as laser therapy, dermabrasion and facial fillers can also reduce certain types of scarring.
Dr. Harirchian realizes that every scar is unique and scars are often very personal to the patient. Therefore, you can trust that she will take the time to carefully listen to your concerns and goals for revision and customize a treatment modality accordingly.
If you would like to schedule a consult regarding scar revision with Dr. Harirchian, please contact our Houston office today.
