Scar revision is surgery to improve or reduce the appearance of scars. It also restores function, and corrects skin changes (disfigurement) caused by an injury, wound, or previous surgery. The post trauma scars leave a psychological impact on a patient and the scars remind them of the trauma they have been through. The scar revision process helps get rid of the same.
Your treatment options may vary based on the type and degree of scarring and can include:
- Simple topical treatments, such as bioCorneum+.
- Minimally invasive procedures
- Surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure
- Delayed healing
- Anesthesia risks
- Change in skin sensation
- Damage to deeper structures including nerves, blood vessels, muscles and lungs can occur and may be temporary or permanent
- Allergies to tape
