Scar Revision Procedure

During the scar revision surgery in Dubai, your cosmetic surgeon will first administer anesthesia. It could be local or general depending upon the extent of the surgery. After that, the surgeon will either use a single technique or a combination of techniques. At the end of the surgery, your cosmetic surgeon will prescribe you topical products such as gels, tapes or external compresses to heal the wound. These products are used to treat existing scars and for the discoloration of the skin. Sometimes the doctors also use injectable treatments like dermal fillers to fill depressed or concave scars but their results are temporary. However, with the latest surgical scar revision procedure, the results are permanent. The improvement achieved also depends upon the severity of the scarring.


Discuss the follow-up plan with the surgeon before and after the procedure because it is necessary to achieve optimal results. Follow-up sessions allow your doctor to know about your recovery process and you can also discuss your concerns with him during such sessions.

Scar Revision Surgery Recovery Time

Initially, during the recovery stage, you may experience swelling, discoloration or discomfort which lasts for 10 to 14 days. The healing period will continue for weeks, gradually fading and refining the scar. It will take several months for the results to become obvious and in some cases where a large scar is to heal and disappear, it may even take up a year.


Dramatic results are not promised when you get scar revision surgery in Dubai. But, you will get intense improvement in the appearance of the affected area. Though you have to wait for the healing to see accurate results, the results are permanent. Painkillers are prescribed to reduce the pain or any kind of discomfort during the recovery process.

Cost of Surgical Scar Revision

The scar revision surgery cost in Dubai varies from person to person depending on some factors. However, on average, the cost of a small area starts from AED 1500, and for a large area, it starts from AED 5,000.
