Will there be any scarring?

In plastic surgery there is a lot of emphasis placed on making the incision as discreetly as possible, which decreases the chances of ugly looking scars.

Depending on the type of incisions made, most surgeries will leave a scar, however, plastic surgeons have been trained to make the surgeries look as aesthetically pleasing as possible, and that in itself decreases the chances of ugly looking scars. Wherever laser technology is applied, chances of scarring are minimal to non-existent.
