Visible scars anywhere on your body can affect your self-image and self-esteem, causing insecurity and anxiety. Many people who have a scar see it as a constant reminder of the injury or event that caused it, creating a lack of closure. It’s common to take steps to hide scars using clothing or makeup.
At Desired Beauty in Los Angeles and Bakersfield, California, board-certified cosmetic and general surgeon Farzin Kerendian, DO, FACOS, FAACS, possesses a keen eye and skilled artistry to help patients achieve their desired look. He uses the most advanced surgical scar revision techniques to improve the appearance of scars to help you look and feel whole again and to restore your self-confidence.
Here’s how scar revision surgery can transform your outlook when living with a scar holds you back from living your life to the fullest.
For many people, a visible scar is a daily reminder of a traumatic accident or event in their past. When you see that scar every day, it can cause frustration and anxiety. Scar revision surgery can aid in emotional healing.
Once Dr. Kerendian improves the appearance of your scar, you may be able to put the event behind you for good. Instead of waking up with an unappealing or distorted scar, scar revision surgery allows you to wake up and feel proud to show off.
Your scar may prevent natural movement, or it may limit a full range of motion. Scar revision surgery has the potential to change that. As a skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Kerendian understands the nuances of how your muscles and skin should function.
He considers both aesthetics and function when repairing your scar so you can expect restored movement and more correct form after the revision procedure. This can make a significant difference in your life by boosting your self-confidence.
If a traumatic facial scar has become your defining feature, it's time to make a change. Scars have a way of overshadowing your best personality traits and physical features, so you — and perhaps others — think of yourself as the person with the scar.
After scar revision surgery, patients find it easier to see themselves as they truly are, inside and out, as well as to allow others to do the same.
People of all ages who have aesthetically unappealing scars want others to think of them as normal. Feeling different, especially if you received your scar as a child or in your youth, can lead to low self-esteem and distress in social situations with your peers. Others may interpret your scar as a personal issue.
Anxiety, depression, embarrassment, sadness, and fear are all common side effects of being self-conscious about how others perceive your scar. Because you're afraid of how people will react when they meet you for the first time, your scar may prevent you from participating in activities you enjoy or new social situations.
When Dr. Kerendian expertly conceals your scar, you can begin to heal emotionally and physically. In fact, many people report an increase in self-esteem following scar revision surgery. They’re more at ease in their improved skin.
Happiness and self-confidence can significantly improve the quality of your life. Rely on Dr. Kerendian to help you leave your scars in the past and take the first step on the path to restoring your confidence. Scar revision surgery can truly change your life.
