What are our surgeons doing to ensure better scars?

Our Surgeons can influence the quality of the scar by choosing the optimum position and orientation. For instance, a vertical scar in front of the ear will be a good scar, while a transverse scar across the cheek will be a poor scar.  Our Surgeons aim to keep the scar as short as possible and to repair the wound with appropriate stitches.  Any conventional stitch through the skin will need to be removed early to avoid stitch marks.  In many areas of the body, the Surgeon will choose use dissolving suture materials under the skin, thus avoiding stitch marks altogether.

Any signs of slow healing or infection are treated promptly by our expert team.  Prolonged redness or raised keloid scars are treated early, as well as patients with olive or darker skin may develop extra pigmentation around the scar, called post-inflammatory inflammation (PID).
