You may have a small scar following this procedure. Most often these heal without any problems. However, it is possible that you will develop a noticeable scar, especially if you have a history of keloids, which is a scar that increases in thickness. If you are concerned about these issues, you will need to consult with a dermatologist and your physician about your specific case.
