Scar Revision

18 Scar Revision 1

Is there a scar on your body that bothers you? Does the scar cause you pain? Is it raised and unsightly? Is there any restriction of movement because of the scar?
If yes, then a scar revision or a scar removal surgery is here to be the agent of change you need.

 
Scar revision can involve surgical and non-surgical treatments or a combination of the two. Unsightly scars can be wide, have train tracks, be raised, or discolored. Depending on where they are located, they might cause functional issues too. Among the non-surgical treatments, there are steroid injections, silicone therapy, massages and lasers. In contrast, surgical treatment involves excision, which can also be combined with non-surgical treatments.

If you feel nauseous, experience shortness of breath, heavy bleeding or increase in pain, you must notify your surgeon. Scar tissue is more susceptible to sunburn following surgery, so avoid exposure to the sun during this time. Paper tape is usually worn for 6 weeks after surgery with or without silicone ointments or sheets. After your scar revision, you will receive specific instructions regarding how to care for your wound.
