Although scars are a normal part of the healing process, facial scars have significant implications on a patient's well-being, both physically and psychologically. Facial scars are one of the most common reasons a patient presents to the facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. The ability to evaluate facial scars and choose the most appropriate technique for revision is of paramount importance to obtain the best result. A thorough understanding of superficial facial anatomy and principles of wound healing is equally as important as meticulous technical execution. Above all, the expectations of the patient must be assessed and considered when formulating a surgical plan.
