Let the Real You Shine Through
Scars can be unwelcome reminders of old wounds from injury or surgery. They can affect both the texture and tone of your skin, leaving you feeling self-conscious or wanting to cover up your body. Using a variety of treatments, Dr. Bekanich can help improve the appearance of your scars and love the skin you’re in.
Improving Scars Surgically
When using surgery to minimize the appearance of a scar, an expert touch is critical for avoiding further scarring. That’s why Dr. Bekanich urges everyone to work only with an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Bekanich reduces the risk of additional scarring by using advanced wound closure techniques and understands how best to approach scar revision. She will work closely with you to determine the best course of action for your unique needs.
During your personalized consultation, Dr. Bekanich will examine your scars and discuss options with you. The location, severity, and size of your scars will determine what treatment or procedure will yield the best results, as well as what outcome you can realistically expect.
Using Your Fat to Reduce Scarring
Fat grafting is a technique that utilizes your own fat, harvested from another area of your body, to add volume to the places that need it most. For recessed scars, fat grafting can be a great option for making the scarred area appear more consistent in texture and tone with the surrounding tissue.
Dr. Bekanich will begin by using liposuction to remove fat from a problem area, such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips. Once the fat has been purified, Dr. Bekanich will carefully and skillfully inject the fat in specific areas in and around your scar to create the desired results. While your own fat is an ideal substance for adding volume, fat grafting may not permanently improve your scarring and may require future treatments.
