Face Scar Correction

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.

Keloid Scars

After the wound has healed, the overproduction of collagen causes Keloid scars. These scars generally appear as growths in the scar site.

Hypertrophic Scars

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

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.
