Scar Revision

Scars are difficult to assess, no matter if they have been caused through an accident or surgery. How a scar eventually heals depends on the kind of injury, the type of patient and the operative care. There are a number of other factors influencing the development of the scar.

Surgery timedepends on localization and extent
Narcosisambulant or stationary
Presentabilitydepends on localization and extent
Workablenessafter 5 to 7 days

Those include the size and depth of the wound, the blood supply in the wound area, the thickness and colour of the skin, and the direction of the scar. Naturally, it is a very personal matter how much a patient feels bothered by a scar. The scar itself cannot be removed completely. However, there are ways to rarefy or reduce existing scars, either by injections or special operative techniques.
