Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are the result of either injury or surgery and their development can be difficult to predict sometimes as they can sometimes heal badly.
Scars can be unsightly and can make a patient feel self-conscious especially if they are noticeable due to their size, shape or where they are located on the body. Scars can also be raised or depressed into the tissue and may differ in colour or texture from the surrounding skin.
Scar revision surgery attempts to minimise a scar to make it less visible and blend in more with the surrounding skin tone and texture.
This type of operation can provide a pleasing cosmetic result or improve its appearance however a scar cannot be completely erased.
Making it less noticeable
It is important to know that you don’t have to live with your scars forever and that plastic surgery can make it far less noticeable. Choosing your plastic surgeon skilled at scar treatment is important.
These are the types of scars and your surgeon will discuss the correct treatment for you depending on what scar you have.
Hypertrophic scars are raised and often thick and red formed right in the wound site.
Keloid Scars are thick clusters of scar tissue which grow larger than the wound that caused the scar in the first place. Keloids can be painful or itchy and usually develop on face, neck, ears chest or shoulders.
Contracture are the scars occur when a large area of skin is lost such as after a burn or other. Underlying tissue pulls together during healing and can restrict movement.
Mr Ferrando will be able to offer you treatment options based on the amount and type of scarring. Scar revision surgery and nonsurgical treatments may be done alone or in combination. Multiple treatments may be required, and procedures can be carried out under local or general anaesthesia.
Your consultation for plastic surgery with Mr Ferrando is an important step in the process of considering and undergoing cosmetic or reconstructive procedures.
This initial meeting allows the patient and surgeon to discuss goals, expectations, and potential outcomes, as well as evaluate the patient’s eligibility for the desired procedure. It will be an opportunity to ask questions or clarify any concerns that you may have. You will look at the “before and after” images of previous patients and get further information you need to make a decision.
Mr Ferrando will review your medical history and conduct a physical exam. He will then discuss all options suitable for you and explain each stage of the procedure or treatment. The exact procedure depends on the anatomy of the patient.
Our team believes that a well-informed, comfortable patient is one of the most important elements of the process. Whether you move forward with surgery or simply learn more, Dr Ferrando is looking forward to meeting you!
