Face Scar Correction
A scar is a result of an injury recovery due to accident, surgery or acne after multiple layers of the skin gets affected. Once a scar is formed, it could be made less visible or removed via surgery.
Different kinds of scars demands different treatments:-
These kinds of scars occur due to severe burns that destroys large amount of skin, as a result puckered skin. Burn scars may also affect muscles and tendon, hence, requires special supervision in treatment.
After the wound has healed, the overproduction of collagen causes Keloid scars. These scars generally appear as growths in the scar site.
Quite opposite to the Keloid scars these scars happens to grow outside of scar boundaries. These scars tend to have thick- raised texture and known to restrict muscle movement.
Facial scars are very difficult to bear because of their placement, also some of them even affect facial features.
What to Expect From Surgery
In the surgical procedure, the entire scar tissue is meant to be removed. Skin flaps (unscarred, healthy skin) is then lifted and moved to form new incision line. In some cases skin grafts are also used where skin flap placement is not possible. After new skin grafting, it takes time to form blood vessels and natural skin folds.
Follow-up care is mandatory for healing without complications. If there is any sign of infection then your surgeon must be informed about this. Also prescribed medications are important to be taken on time.
