Can a surgical scar be removed from my ear lobe?
A broken plate cut through my ear lobe resulting in a through-through laceration. However, it has been 2-3 years and the wound has healed leaving a permanent scar. I don't feel confident when people ask what happened. Can you please advise if there is a treatment to get rid of the scar without having to go through plastic surgery or any other surgery? Is laser surgery or skin resurfacing possible?
Thanks for the question. Scars can not be removed but, can be improved. Often a scar revision can assist not only function but, also in appearance. Consider a consult with a member of the ASAPS in your area. They are experts in this field of corrective surgery.
