Scar Revision

Scars can develop in many different forms, often depending on the way the skin and tissues were damaged. When they are overly puffy, large or constricting, they can cause the patient an aesthetic concern, which in some cases can also impair the body’s functioning (especially when appearing on a joint). A scar revision procedure can help to lessen the overall shape and size of a scar, and make its appearance less obvious.

There are a range of ways that concerning scars can be addressed, including: steroid injections, silicone sheets or gels, pressure dressings and cosmetic camouflage (make-up). At Chester Cosmetic Surgery we often carry out a surgical scar revision procedure which involves cutting into the scar or the surrounding skin, making a new wound. The incision may help to make the new scar much neater and smaller in size (depending on the technique), encouraging it to heal more effectively than it did previously. This procedure is especially popular when a person is affected by a scar that continues to grow outside of its boundary (keloid scar), getting larger over time. 

 When we need to address contracted scars (caused by burns) we may need to consider a skin graft where the scarred tissue is removed and replaced with a healthier piece of skin. In this instance a donor site will need to be selected from another part of the body – usually the back or thighs.

Frequently asked questions

When considering our patients for a scar revision procedure we’ll need to assess the scar; its particular type and location. A full and thorough consultation will explain which approach is needed and how it will be carried out.

A fully qualified and trained surgeon, such as Miss Breahna will ensure the procedure is safe for the patient before she goes ahead. The most suitable procedure technique will help to take care of the patient’s overall well-being.

Surgical procedures can be painful. At Chester Cosmetic Surgery, a local anaesthetic is often a suitable method of pain relief when carrying out a scar revision procedure.

The new wound will need time to heal, and will become swollen and bruised. A dressing will prevent the chance of infection, and there are no guarantees the new scar will heal better than it did before.

The results of a scar revision procedure will often take a few weeks to develop. At this time the wound will have had sufficient time to heal, and the general shape and size is apparent. Scarring will always be darker in colour in its early stages, fading in tone over time. A scar may take several months to fade to a silvery-white.
