If you have a scar that you are unhappy with then it can be possible to revise it so that it is much neater and/or less prominent.
What is scar revision?
People can be left with scar tissue following previous surgeries or even after accidents. Sometimes, these scars can be quite prominent or not as neat as you would like them to be. Depending on the severity of the scarring and its location, there are options to excise the old scar tissue and re-stitch the skin to create a much neater appearance.
How will I know if I am suitable for scar revision?
Each case of scar revision is individual, therefore during your consultation, your surgeon will assess your existing scar and talk you through the details of surgery and the possible outcomes.
The method of surgery used for the scar revision will depend upon many factors including the size and location of the existing scar.
How long will the scar take to heal following the revision surgery?
At The Westbourne Centre, scar revision takes place under local anaesthetic so patients can go home the same day and recover in the comfort of their own home. Much of the long term outcome of scar revision depends on the healing process, so your surgeon will be able to advise you on how you can achieve the best results following the surgery.
