Scar Gallery

All incisions are closed using the same meticulous technique, identical to that used by plastic surgeons.

Whenever possible, incisions are placed along natural skin lines.
Scar appearance improves with time, and the final result is generally evident 6 months after surgery. Fairer-skinned individuals generally have lighter-colored scars than individuals with darker complexions. Though individual results may vary, most patients can expect results within the range of examples shown here.

Some scars may be difficult to see.  Please mouse over the images to highlight scars below:
