The Park Clinic is planning to be open on Friday, September 18th. We currently do not have power and are unable to confirm appointments. Please be advised there will be no No-Show penalty for patients unable to make it to their appointment. We will be available for all patients who need us. If you had an appointment scheduled with us this week and it was cancelled due to Hurricane Sally, we will be in contact with you as soon as we can. It may be early next week, but we will get those appointments rescheduled. We hope that all of our patients stayed safe during the storm. Should you have an emergency please dial 911.

Skin Reconstruction Mobile

Scar revision can improve the appearance of the scar by making it less obvious, but it cannot remove a scar. This may involve moving local tissue to improve the scar appearance, making the scar more narrow, or shifting the scar to a less visible place or direction. Dermabrasion or laser therapy removes the top layers of skin and as new skin forms, the scar is blunted.

Skin grafting moves skin without blood vessesl from a healthy area to the injured area to cover wounds or release tightened scar contractures, since scars can pull tissue together and impair function. These contractures require release and treatment with local tissue flaps, grafts, tissue expansion or larger flap procedures.

Flap surgery involves moving skin with underlying soft tissues and blood vessels from a healthy area to the site of need.

A Z-plasty repositions a scar along more natural lines and creases to decrease its visibility and increase length, allowing the wound to heal with less tension.
