Most of the cosmetic surgeries such as facelift, breast augmentation or tummy tuck are likely to leave a scar. There is no need to worry too much about scars as they naturally formed when the fibrous tissues bind an open wound together. There are no techniques or procedures to completely remove the scars but advancing technologies are reducing their appearance. Sometimes, they fade and disappear with the passage of time without undergoing any kind of treatment. While scars occurring in result of surgeries, are not the attractive reminder. Post surgical scar treatment in Islamabad and Rawalpindi causes reduction of scars that appear naturally in response of body damage. This is the only way in which body heals injured tissues and cells. Normally, post-operative scars are red, thick, firm and raised that become sensitive and limit function and motion.
Technique we use:
Surgeons help in minimizing the scarring after surgery by using number of different techniques. Some are discussed below:
Scars are placed in a natural crease or fold such as under beneath the breast during breast augmentation or reduction. If the area of treatment has no crease then scars are easily hidden by clothes. The best example is of tummy tuck, in which scars are hidden by under wears.
Injection of steroids:
For improving and softening of scars, steroids are directly injected into the affected area. Keep that in mind, steroid treatment also causes little damaging of cells and tissues of surrounding areas by thinning it out or making it look pale.
The technique removes layers of skin with the application of lasers. This treatment is usually recommended for the sufferers of acne or stretch marks. Laser treatment is also known as laser resurfacing which is effective against mild to severe scars.
Revision is needed for wide and irregular scars that are irresponsive to other options of the treatment. Scar revision blends in scars less conspicuously with the tone and texture of surrounding tissues. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring.
Process of scar healing:
Once you get the Post Surgical Scar Treatment in Islamabad and Rawalpindi, existing scars undergo different stages of healing process. Following 4-6 weeks, initially the skin scars are large and become redder in appearance. Sometimes it is confused with infections but it’s not the case. The outermost layer of skin loosens and deeper layers remain intact, which is normal. After 4-4 months following the reddening phase, wounds become smaller in size and become paler in appearance over time. Follow-up care is vital for this procedure to monitor healing. If you see any kind of side effect or irritation you should tell your doctor during your follow up visits.
