Scar revision

Sometimes scars from previous surgeries and injuries do not heal as well as one may expect. In these situations there are different treatments that a plastic surgeon can use to optimise the scar appearance. Scars often fall into different types including hypertrophic, keloid and atrophic scars.

Treatments include:

  • Topical treatments including scar massage and silicone therapy
  • Compression
  • Steroid injections
  • Excision

Mr Molajo will discuss the different options and risk and benefits with you as different modalities may be necessary to improve the scar appearance.
