The scar is a connective dense tissue that has arisen because of such cutaneous lesions as:
The scar is formed in the area of the wound, which has a large area.
There are 4 types of scars (scars):
1. Keloid scars. Are located in soft parts of the skin, adapted to frequent tension (chest, shoulders, back), and therefore constantly increases in size and has a red-violet hue.
2. Atrophic scars. In other words, scars having a retracted appearance. There are such scars in the lower part of the surrounding skin. They are smaller in thickness compared to normotrophic and have a pink color.
3. Normotrophic scars. Such scars do not change in size and are located closer to normal tissues having an elastic appearance. The hue of such scars is white or bodily.
4. Hypertrophic scars. Are located only in the area of the wound and have a dense shape and pink hue.
Thanks to modern equipment provided in our clinic, plastic surgeons can almost completely remove scars and prevent their re-emergence, in the shortest time and most importantly, as painlessly as possible. Complete removal of skin scars is unfortunately impossible, but with the help of surgery, you can reduce the size of the scar by almost imperceptible.
A surgical procedure is performed using a laser or a scalpel, using a nontraumatic suture. It is also important to take into account the date when the skin was damaged since the operation can be performed only 4 months after the injury.
For the operation, the surgeon will need to know the following patient information:
Having received all the data about the patient, the physician begins the process of the operation. For the beginning the previous scar is excised and the edges of the wound are compared. After this, intradermal sutures of the cosmetic type are performed. Finally the operation ends with the application of an aseptic bandage.
