About Scar Revision
Scars can occur from a variety of incidents such as trauma, surgery, injury, and other instances. They can also appear on the skin in different colors, shapes, and forms. Regardless of the look and cause of a scar, our board-certified Flowood, MS plastic surgeons can perform scar revision surgery to help reduce their appearance and restore the skin. Sometimes scars can also interrupt function of the nerves or even cause pain, which can also be addressed at The Face & Body Center during your procedure. Our goal with scar revision surgery is to restore your confidence and improve the overall cosmetic appearance of the area that has been affected. Contact our office today so we can help your skin look and feel better by creating a unique, custom treatment plan that addresses your needs.

- Have scars as a result of trauma, an accident, previous surgery, or cancer

Scar Revision Reviews
I Have Had Two Diff Procedures by Dr. Brantley. He’s the BEST. - Dr. Brantley did my breast augmentation with a scar revision. I went back to him 6 months later to have Lipo done. He is the HEST & his staff is excellent. I would highly recommend Dr. Brantley for any plastic surgery.
Dr. Barazza and his entire staff were WONDERFUL. They were super professional and made me feel some comfortable. I requested implants that looked natural and have been astounded at how great they look. My scars are almost gone and it hasn’t even been 3 months. I feel great and recovery was easy. Any concerns/questions I had pre and post surgery were quickly catered to/answered. I cannot say enough good things.
Breast Augmentation & Wrist Surgery - I could not have asked for a better surgeon than Dr Wegener. He really connected personally with me and was honest the whole time. I came to him for a breast augmentation. I'm around 113 lbs and have always had a slender body type, and always been SO flat chested. When I consulted with him, he asked me what I wanted. Not what he thought I needed... what I wanted. He gave me exactly that. I went from not even filling out an A cup to a full C/small D and it looks amazing! I seriously love them!I originally spoke to him with complaints of my wrist. I broke my scaphoid bone over 7 years ago and I still had a non healed break and never knew it. I knew he was the surgeon for me when he told me a few weeks later that he had been researching the best treatment for me and he gave me the options I had. There was no thinking to it after that when he showed me he was truly into my care! I told him I'd like the breast augmentation at the same time as when I'd need the wrist surgery. Everything went so smoothly: prep, surgery, recovery, therapy. And here I am with the best looking breasts, back to a great range of motion with my wrist, and beautiful scars to go with it. I would recommend Dr Wegener every single time for any plastic and hand surgery. He and his team are so active in patient care. They are very down to earth and so sweet!
Doctor Michael G. Kanosky is Awesome!!!! - The office staff at the Face and Body Center are very nice and helpful. The wait was a little long but I understand if a Physician needs to take his/her time with his/her patients to make sure everybody's needs and concerns are met. Jill, his nurse, is very friendly and answers any and all questions you have. Dr. Kanosky and Jill made me feel comfortable every step of the way from the consultations to the surgery and the post - op appointment. At this point, I am loving my new boobs. The pain in my neck, shoulders and back have diminished. I am six days post - op and the experience so far has been lovely.Updated on 12 Jul 2019:Some of the swelling is coming down and the boobs are looking lovelier everyday. I am really happy I decided to have this procedure done. I need some tips on scar treatment for my breast reduction now because in a week they will be fully healed.Updated on 18 Jul 2019:My healing is going smoothly. My right breast is taking a little longer as far as pain goes, maybe that's the one he removed the most breast tissue from or because it's the arm I use the most. Everything is going well and I am starting to get out of the house more. I love my new look and clothes fit so beautifully on me now. I just have to work on my scar treatment now. I will post photos later today.Updated on 22 Aug 2019:I had my third post - op appointment and my doctor was amazed at how fast I am healing. When it comes to healing, he said that I am one of his best post surgery patients. I love my new breasts and now I can work on healthily losing some weight and strength training. I am well pleased with everything; although I do feel that my nipples are a little too close together, but that's no big deal.Updated on 22 Aug 2019:Healing very well! Eveything is good! I feel good and am doing well. I started using the mederma oil for scars and sunscreen about two to three weeks ago. I just keep the incisions moisturized to reduce scarring.
I Had a Great Experience and I Highly Recommend Dr. Brantley and His Amazing Staff! - I had a "mommy makeover" done by Dr. Brantley in October of 2021. He performed a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a breast lift with implants. Dr. Brantley and his entire staff are very kind, courteous, and professional. They answered all of my questions in person, by phone, and email (I had a lot) thoroughly and never acted as if I was being bothersome. Dr. Brantley went over the entire procedure during our consultation and again before he performed the surgery. The surgery went exactly as planned. I had liposuction done to my stomach and back. I had a tummy tuck, and I had a breast lift with implants. I was around a C 1/2 before the surgery. We discussed just doing a lift without implants but Ms. Macala showed me pictures of a lift with implants and without. I decided the lift looks better WITH the implants. I only went up about a half size to a D because I am a smaller person and I wanted them to look more natural. The liposuction to my stomach area and the tummy tuck were extremely successful. The liposuction to my back wasn't as noticeable. There is still a little fat in my back area. However I'm working on that with diet and exercise. The recovery process was comparable to a 2nd or 3rd C-section. I say that because I have had 2 C-sections and my 1st was a breeze. I was pretty sore for around a week, but I could manage ok after about 3 days. I haven't had any complications during recovery. Everything looks very good. I do have some scaring even after using the recommended scar gel. My abdomen scars from the tummy tuck are pretty noticeable. But honestly no one sees those except my husband anyways. And they do look better if I have been tanning. The only thing that seems out of the ordinary with my experience is that the dissolvable stitches in my abdomen have not dissolved yet. They are still very much intact. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Brantley and am happy with the decision to have the mommy makeup surgery. I love my results!!

What to Expect
Your procedure will vary depending on the type of scar you have, its location, and size. For raised scars, called keloid scars, sometimes less invasive methods such as dermabrasion, chemical peels, or laser treatments may reduce the appearance and allow it to blend in more smoothly with your skin. In other cases, they can also be surgically moved by trimming away the skin or even moving the scar to a more discreet place. For other types of scars, such as scar tissue that results from previous surgeries, it may be possible to reopen this skin and remove some of the scar tissue. These procedures are generally performed on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia. Some pain, redness, or swelling in the operated area may occur, and you will most likely need to return to have your stitches removed a few days following the surgery.
Strenuous exercise and activities will need to be avoided for the first week or so. Your surgeon will schedule multiple follow-up appointments with you in order to track your healing progress and ensure that your skin looks healthy. The healing time will vary per case, but it can take up to a year for your skin to fully heal and for you to see your final results.
