Advantages of scar revision surgery

Types of scar

  • Keloid scars result from the skin’s overproduction of collagen after a wound has healed. Keloid scars are thick, puckered, itchy clusters of scar tissue that grow beyond the edges of the injury or incision. They are often red or darker in colour than the surrounding skin.
  • Hypertrophic scars, unlike keloids, do not grow out of the boundaries of the scar area, but because of their thick, raised texture, they can be unsightly. They may also restrict the natural movement of muscles and tendons.
  • Spread scars are widened, and the skin is thinned.
  • Contracture scars are the most severe scar forms and usually occur due to a loss of a large skin area. Contracture scars are most commonly found in patients that have experienced burn injuries.

At First Consultation

During the initial consultation, you must provide a complete medical history, including information about previous surgical procedures, past and present medical conditions, and any medications or herbal supplements you take. Your surgeon will conduct a complete physical examination to discuss the possible risks and complications of the procedure. You can make a classified decision and develop the best action plan.

Procedure

Surgical Scar Revision:

During surgical scar revision, a scar is removed, and the surrounding healthy skin is joined less conspicuously. Wide scars can often be excised and closed, resulting in a narrower, less noticeable scar; similarly, long scars can be shortened.

Z-Plasty :

Z-plastic is a surgical technique most commonly used to change the direction of a scar and, therefore, make the scar less visible. Scars in facial expression lines tend to be less visible than scars that cross these lines. The Z-plasty is used to put these scars in facial expression lines.

Steroid Applications and Injections :

Steroids can help flatten and reduce the redness of hypertrophic and keloid scars. Steroids are applied or injected into the scar. This is especially effective on hypertrophic and keloid scars and helps to reduce the itching and pain associated with these scars.

Silicone Gel Sheets :

Silicone gel sheets can help flatten hypertrophic and keloid scars. These transparent sheets are placed on the scar and worn 24 hours daily.

Dermabrasion :

Dermabrasionsmoothes out surface irregularities such as deep lines or scars by removing the topmost layers of the skin.

Tissue Expansion :

In this procedure, a “balloon” is inserted under a patch of healthy skin near a scar. The balloon is filled with a saline solution to stretch the skin. The balloon is removed when the skin has been adequately stretched, which can take several weeks or months. The scar is surgically removed, and the balloon-stretched skin is pulled over the previously scarred area and carefully closed.

Collagen Injections :

Collagen Injections are used to rise or fill in sunken scars.

Laser Skin Resurfacing :

Two types of lasers are used to reduce the uneven surface of scars: the CO2 Laser and the Erbium: YAG Laser. The CO2 laser is typically used for deeper scars, while the Erbium is used for superficial scars and deeper skin tones. Both lasers remove the topmost layers of skin, allowing new, smooth skin to form.
