How does surgical scar revision work?
Your cosmetic surgeon will first administer anesthesia, it could be local or general depending upon the extent of the surgery. The improvement achieved will also depend upon the severity of the scarring. Your doctor can either use a single technique or a combination of techniques. After the surgery your cosmetic surgeon will prescribe you topical treatments such as gels, tapes or external compression to heal the wound. These products are used to treat existing scars and for the discoloration of skin. Sometimes your doctors will make use of injectable treatments like dermal fillers to fill depressed or concave scars whose results are temporary. However, with latest surgical scar revision procedure, the results are permanent.
Discuss your followup plan with the doctor before and after the procedure. It is necessary to achieve optimal results. Followup sessions allow your doctor to know about your recovery phase and you can also discuss your concerns with him during such sessions.
Initially, during the healing stage, you may experience swelling, discoloration or discomfort which lasts between 10 to 14 days. The healing period will continue for weeks, gradually fading and refining the scar. It will take several months for the results to become obvious and in some cases where a large scare is to heal and disappear, it may even take up a year.
When a procedure has lots of benefits then some complications are acceptable. Following are some common temporary risks linked to the procedure;
- Anesthesia risks
