There are many reasons why scars can form. Infections, surgery, injury or tissue inflammation are some of the causes. They can appear anywhere on the body and can vary depending on whether they are flat, bulging, sunken, colored, hypertrophic, keloid and causing pain or itching.
The procedure to treat and reduce the scar will be determined by the surgeon after diagnosis based on the patient’s age, general health and medical history, scar severity, type, tolerance of certain medications, expectations, condition and location of the scar.
Once all these questions have been evaluated, the surgeon will explain what is the most appropriate treatment for your case. However, the treatment only improves the appearance of the scar but does not completely remove it.
