A scar is the human body's natural response to any form of bodily insult or injury. It could result from multiple causes such as surgery, trauma, disease, infection, etc. Each person is unique, in the sense that each individual has a different way of healing capability. Some would heal faster, while others would have better-looking scars. This would depend on several factors like the patient's age, nutrition, the body parts involved, the patient's medical condition, and so on. A plastic surgeon usually gives a scar time to mature (usually from six to 18 months) before suggesting any procedure or revision. The procedure would make the scar less noticeable or improve its appearance. Please bear in mind that a scar is permanent, and the most that could be offered is to make it more inconspicuous. The procedure is done under local anesthesia at our out-patient clinic.
