Scar revision or reduction surgery aims to minimise a scar so it’s less visible and blends in more with the rest of your skin.
You may have an unsightly scar or a build-up of scar tissue on the skin, which can be distressing and lead to low self-confidence. Scar revision can help make a real improvement to the appearance of your skin.
Scar revision surgery could make you much happier about your appearance, particularly if the scar is in a prominent place like the face, neck or chest.
It isn’t possible to completely eliminate a scar, but through careful planning and the specialist techniques used during the procedure, our doctors can blend the scar into the rest of the skin to make it less noticeable.
It is important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring – just as with all types of medical aesthetic treatment.
Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks and complications, although possible side effects are usually minimal. They include bleeding, infection, redness, as well as change in pigmentation and skin sensitivity.
Scar revision treatment can be performed on most people who feel that they’d like their scars reduced. It’s important to be realistic about the results of the surgery, and understand that these will be different for every person.
Your doctor will talk you through the results that they believe can be achieved during your consultation.
We understand that every patient’s requirements are different, and so treatment will be tailored specifically to you. As a responsible provider of medical aesthetics, we place a great deal of importance on our free, no-obligation consultations.
Your practitioner will provide a detailed pricing overview for your treatment following your consultation process. To read more about the flexible credit options available via our partnership with specialist financial providers, please view our pricing and finance page.

We're ready when you are
Your journey with The Hospital Group begins with a consultation with our friendly medical aesthetic practitioners, this may be an Aesthetician, Nurse Practitioner or Doctor. During this conversation you can talk through why you’re interested in this treatment, how much it costs, if there are finance options available to you, whether you’re suitable for treatment, if you’ll need a one off treatment, or a full course, as well as potential treatment dates.
You can ask our medical aesthetic practitioners any questions as they are extremely knowledgeable and have undertaken extensive training. If you feel ready to proceed, we can carry out a laser patch test (where applicable) and book your first treatment for a date and time that suits you.
You can ask your medical aesthetic practitioner any final questions on the day of the treatment. All pre- and post-treatment advice will be discussed prior to the day itself, so you will know exactly what to expect during your treatment, including how long it will take, and how it will feel.
For most medical aesthetic treatments, you will be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be able to go about your normal day-to-day activities. If you experience any mild discomfort, redness or swelling, this will subside within the following days. Any specific aftercare requirements will be discussed at your consultation.
