How should I prepare for my Scar Revision surgery?
There is very little preparation prior to scar revision surgery, however, at your consultation with your surgeon you may be asked to do the following in advance of your treatment:
+ Take certain medications or adjust your current medications + Stop smoking well in advance of surgery + Avoid taking aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding
Scars are unique to the individual and circumstance in which they are formed – they are technically the body’s natural way of healing from an injury. Scar revision procedures are able to deliver excellent results where scarring is especially noticeable and prominent.
Obstetricians are clever at creating high-quality Caesarian Section scars, but cannot avoid all potential problems. They try to place the scar transversely low on the abdominal wall below the bikini line.
