Scar Revision

Accidents, burns or even operations, can leave unsightly scars on patients which can be  very distressing. Scarring is caused by poor healing and is, unfortunately, unpredictable as it depends on a number of reasons including the quality of the patient’s skin and its healing capacity.

Scar revision is the surgical removal or correction of scars. Healthy tissue is re-approximated in layers to favour a normal healing process which produces as more esthetically pleasing scar.

This procedure is usually performed under local or regional anaesthesia as an ambulatory or day-case procedure. Stitches are usually removed after 10 to 14 days depending on the area and problem even though the healing process can take anything from 3 to 12 months.
