Scar Corrections

Every surgical procedure or trauma will leave a scar. The healing process can be affected by many variables, such as the size and deepness of the wound, blood supply, skin thickness, skin color, and even the direction of the scar. The healing process is the body’s response to the injury and is not predictable. The objective of plastic surgery is not to eliminate the scar, but to improve and help it to become less apparent. Scar revisions can be made by steroid injections, use of topical steroids, surgical revision, and lipofilling.
