In today’s video we are revising a scar that was caused by a tummy tuck. This type of scar we like to call a dog ear scar. Dog ears are caused by redundant skin folding over the flanks and they are very common. Dog ears are repaired easily by excising the extra skin and suturing the area back together. This patient will have a smooth, flat scar where her dog ears once were. This procedure only takes a few minutes and can be done in the office.
