      What is Scar Reduction Surgery?

      Scar reduction surgery, also known as scar revision or scar excision, is a specialised medical procedure aimed at improving the appearance of scars. Scars can result from various factors such as surgery, injury, burns, or previous medical conditions. While scars are a natural part of the healing process, they can sometimes be unsightly, cause discomfort, or limit movement. Scar reduction surgery is performed to minimise the appearance of scars, making them less noticeable and more cosmetically pleasing. During the procedure, a skilled surgeon removes the old scar tissue and carefully re-approximates the wound edges. This can lead to a thinner, less prominent scar that blends better with the surrounding skin. Scar reduction surgery is a valuable option for individuals seeking to enhance their physical appearance and improve their overall well-being.

      There are different types of scars. They can be large lumpy keloid, thick and raised hypertrophic scars or may be flat or depressed also. The most important factors to determine if scar revision surgery is possible or not are- type of scars, it location and cause of the scar.

      Who is an ideal candidate?

      Anyone who has unwanted scars can consider this treatment option. Some common reasons of scar formation are:

      • Burns
      • Acne
      • Cesarean birth
      • Any reconstructive or cosmetic surgery
      • Skin infections
      • Trauma or traumatic injuries
      • Piercing

      Understanding Scar Reduction Surgery

      It is designed to address scars of various types, including hypertrophic, atrophic, or keloid scars, which can be raised, depressed, or discoloured. The procedure typically involves local anaesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort. The doctor meticulously removes the old scar tissue, sometimes repositioning or altering the direction of the scar to make it less conspicuous. Techniques such as Z-plasty, W-plasty, or tissue expansion may be employed to achieve the best results. After the surgery, the wound is meticulously closed, aiming to minimise scarring and maximise aesthetic improvement. Scar reduction surgery is usually performed in a sterile medical setting, and patients often experience a relatively short recovery period.

      There are other methods of Scar Reduction available as well, which precisely include:
      1. Topical Treatments like: Pressure therapy, silicone gel and polyurethene dressing
      2. Injectable Treatments like – Fillers, Corticosteroid injections, Bleomycin injections, cryyotherapy etc.
      3. Scar Resurfacing lasers like- Mirconeedling, Fractional lasers, Chemical Peels, etc.

First and foremost, it enhances the aesthetic appearance of scars, making them less noticeable and more in line with the surrounding skin. This can significantly boost an individual’s self-confidence and overall well-being. Additionally, scar reduction surgery can alleviate discomfort and tightness that may be associated with certain types of scars. It can also improve the range of motion in cases where scars limit movement. The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis, with minimal disruption to daily life. By addressing both the cosmetic and functional aspects of scarring, scar reduction surgery provides patients with the opportunity to embrace a renewed sense of confidence and comfort in their appearance.
