A portion of Dr. Burroughs’ practice is cosmetic revisionary surgery for patients referred from other surgeons. These surgeries include: enhancing results; repairing eyelid dysfunction; optimizing scar locations; and improving scar appearance. Options include injections with anti-scarring agents such as 5 fluorouracil, triamcinolone; topical steroid application; microneedling; and surgical scar revision. It is essential to take care of scars as soon as they become prominent and of concern. Scars tend to become firmer and discolored over the first few months, and then around 3-4 months begin to soften and become lighter in color. Surgery is deferred until scar remodeling and maturation has completed and can be as late as a year.
