Hypertrophic Scar Removal
Hypertrophic scars occur when excess collagen is produced to heal a wound, usually caused by tension around the wound. These scars are typically raised and reddish in color but stay within the confines of the wound perimeter. They are highly noticeable, and for this reason, many patients hide them if possible. Dr. Erez Dayan offers hypertrophic scar removal at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute in Reno/Tahoe, NV.
Complicating hypertrophic scar removal is the fact that these scars often contain nerves and blood vessels. Advanced techniques are necessary when surgery is required to remove hypertrophic scars. Many plastic surgeons prefer not to attempt removing a hypertrophic scar but will only use silicone sheets or steroid injections to shrink their size or fade their appearance.

Dr. Erez Dayan is a hypertrophic scar specialist who received his medical training at Harvard Medical School. He received further fellowship training at Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute that included advanced instruction and experience with scar revision surgery. He is well qualified to handle hypertrophic scar treatment using minimally invasive means or surgery.
Dr. Dayan routinely uses a combination of treatments when dealing with hypertrophic scars, even after surgery.
