The surgeon’s goal is to replace an unsightly or disfiguring scar with a better scar, one which is fine-line, level with the surrounding surface, about the same color as the adjacent skin, and which causes no contracture or pull on the surrounding area. The surgeon wants to produce a scar that is as inconspicuous as possible. Acne scarring and pock marks and small lip wrinkles are now treated by peels, laser resurfacing and aggressive daily skin care.
