Can a scar be covered?


I had emergency surgery to remove my spleen. I want to cover the scar and want to know how much it would cost to do it and how long the recovery would be?


Scar revision surgery involves the skin and superficial tissues.  The majority of the time can be done as an outpatient or in the office.  When I perform scar revisions I use the product Embrace which is only available to Plastic Surgeons.
