Abstract In 1957, Hynes first described the shaving and grafting procedure for the treatment of mature hypertrophic scars (HTSs). This procedure involved excision of mature HTS using a scalpel blade followed by split-skin grafting (SSG). We have modified this technique through the novel application of Versajet™ (Smith & Nephew, Hull, UK) for the sub-total excision of mature HTS with SSG. To date, this modified technique has shown excellent cosmetic results. A review of cases and an example of the technique is provided.
