Can a scar be covered?

Q:

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?

A:

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.
