How do I decide to have correction surgery?

Different scars require different treatments. For example, severe burns that destroy a large area of skin heal by crumpling the entire area. During this scarring, muscles and tendons are affected by this contraction. Keloids are the result of an overproduction of collagen by the skin after the wound has healed. Hypertrophic scars, different from keloids, do not originate from the boundaries of the scar, but due to their thinness, the increase in their texture can be unpleasant and oppose the natural movement of the muscles and tendons.
Is scarring correction a convenient procedure for you?
The color and type of the skin, the age of the person and the type of scar are very important factors to take into account.
The different types of scars respond to the different techniques that have been used in plastic surgery.

How the surgery is performed

The Z-plasty technique is a method of moving a scar from one area to another, usually in a natural fold of the skin to minimize its visibility. Although the Z-technique does not completely remove the scar, it makes it less visible.
With dermabrasion and laser, it is possible to remove the scar bump, removing part of the layers of the skin with a scraper or with the laser beam. As with all scars, it is not removed but becomes less visible.
Keloids and hypertrophic scars are first treated with local injections of corticosteroids to reduce their size. If this method is not satisfactory, the scars are surgically removed, and the incisions are closed with fine sutures resulting in less visibility.

What to expect after surgery

Swelling, bruising, and redness are usually unavoidable. It is very important to follow the surgeon’s instructions. Although the suture is removed within a few days of surgery, your skin needs time to heal.

You have to remember that scars take about 1 year to complete and get the best look.
