Scar correction is a surgical procedure that aims to improve or minimise the appearance of scars. Scars can be caused by various factors such as injury, surgery or skin disease and are often bothersome or detract from the aesthetic appearance.
The procedure for scar correction depends on the type and extent of the scar. In some cases, non-invasive treatment such as the application of special creams, gels or silicone patches may be sufficient to improve the appearance of the scar. For deeper or more pronounced scars, surgical intervention may be necessary.
Surgical scar correction involves removing excess scar tissue and repositioning or tightening the surrounding skin to create a smoother, less noticeable scar. The procedure is usually performed under local or general anaesthesia, depending on the extent and complexity of the correction.
After surgery, careful follow-up and care of the scar is crucial to achieve optimal results. This may include regular application of special scar creams or gels and avoiding excessive sun exposure and physical exertion.
The benefits of scar correction are many. These include an improved aesthetic appearance of the scar, increased self-confidence and improved quality of life. Minimising scarring can also improve the functionality of the affected area of the body, for example by reducing movement restrictions or feelings of tension.
