What is Scar Revision?
Scar revision surgery is the therapeutic alteration of scar tissue, usually to improve the appearance of the scar or attempt to eliminate it. Scarring can have a deleterious effect on appearance, self-image, and quality of life; scar tissue can be overly sensitive, stiff/inflexible, painful, or itchy.
What is the recovery time?
After any kind of scar revision there is an important period of recovery that must be followed very carefully. Most people can resume normal activities soon after surgery. If the full recovery period and therapies are maintained then the scar revision surgery’s wounds will heal correctly. The initial healing phase of a surgical scar revision may include localized swelling, discolouration may take 1 to 2 weeks.
