A scar is the body's natural way of healing and replacing lost or damaged skin. It is usually composed of fibrous tissue and may form for many different reasons, such as a result of infections, surgery, injuries, or inflammation of tissue. Scars may appear anywhere on the body, but having a scar on your face can often times negatively impact a person’s self image.

Choosing the right plastic surgeon to treat your facial scar can be challenging. Our plastic surgeons here at University of Utah Health are experts in restoring a natural look and feel to the face and surrounding areas. Don’t trust your face to just anyone.
