Scars are the inevitable consequence of deep skin injuries or surgery. Sometimes scars can cause functional problems or be aesthetically displeasing once healed. The good news is that with specialist skills it is possible to disguise or improve scars using both surgical and non-surgical treatments.
Dr. Arianayagam will provide a detailed assessment of the problem and recommend appropriate treatment.
The specific treatment will depend on the initial assessment. Sometimes, a scar is best removed while in other situations, scar revision will be more appropriate. Occasionally a scar is removed and revised at the same time.
There are no templates to use in these complicated situations and any intervention has to be weighed against possible complications caused by the attempted “correction”.
This difficult area of treatment is best left to the expert!
