Scar Revision Surgery in Kondapur, Hyderabad
Scar revision surgery aims to reduce the visibility of a scar such that it fits in with the surrounding skin tone and texture.
Scars are visible indications of a wound that persist after it has healed. They are inevitable consequences of injury or surgery, and their progression is often unexpected. Scars that are visible, ugly, or disfiguring can be caused by poor healing. Even a well-healed wound might leave a scar that detracts from your appearance. Scars can be apparent owing to their size, form, or position; they can also be elevated or depressed, and their colour or texture may differ from the healthy tissue around them.
How the procedure is performed
During the surgical procedures, you will be given medications to help you relax. Local anaesthetic, intravenous sedation, and general anaesthesia are all options. Your doctor will advise you on the best course of action.
The extent to which scar revision can enhance your scarring will be determined by the severity of your scarring, as well as the kind, size, and location of the scar. In certain situations, a single approach may be enough to make a substantial difference. To obtain the greatest results, your plastic surgeon may prescribe a mix of scar revision methods. For deeper scars, a surgical incision may be required to remove the previous scar.
Layered scar closure is required for some scars. When excision extends beyond the skin's surface or in places with a lot of mobility, layered closure is frequently employed. Sub-dermal closure (below the skin surface) using absorbable or non-removable sutures is required for the first phase or layer. Closure layers continue to be added, culminating in the closure of the residual surface wound.
