Surgical Scars

Surgical scars are formed when the skin is cut or otherwise injured during surgery. As the skin heals, it produces collagen fibers to bridge the wound. The resulting scar varies in size, color, and texture depending on the type and location of surgery, healing process, and individual factors.

History: Surgical scar management has evolved significantly. Historically, scar minimization techniques were limited. Today, advancements in surgical techniques and scar management protocols aim to minimize scarring

Treatments: Several options can improve the appearance of surgical scars, including silicone gel sheeting, scar massage therapy, and in some cases, laser treatment or scar revision surgery. Early intervention is often crucial for optimal results.

Disclaimer: The complete disappearance of surgical scars is uncommon. However, treatments can significantly improve their appearance.
