Scars correction

Unfortunately, it is impossible to remove scar completely(whether surgical or post-traumatic scar scar). However, in most cases, scars amenable to surgical correction, after which they become less noticeable. Typically, it is possible to reduce the width of the rumen, but is almost impossible to affect its length. In any case, one can make the scar less noticeable. In some cases, scar can be moved (moving the skin flaps) to less visible areas, covered with clothing, linens). It is possible, when threse is an excess of soft tissue but if the scar is, for example, on the skin of the lower leg, then by virtue of its anatomical features masking is problematic. Scars are normo – hyper – and hypertrophic. They all can be successful surgicaly corrected. Separately need to distinguish keloid scarring in people prone to keloid skin reactions to trauma. In such cases, the approach is individual and does not always involve a surgical correction. Complex schemes of conservative treatment is applied at keloid scars, which include compression therapy, corticosteroid therapy, the use of creams and silicone wafers, the selection of individual therapy aimed at normalizing the metabolism of folic acid, etc.

Post-burn contracture dermatogenic are a direct indication for surgical scar plasty . In some cases, it requires long-term preoperative preparation with local fabrics, plastics and free skin grafts. Implantation expanders and others.
