Unattractive scars may make a person insecure because it isn’t always possible to cover them with make up or clothing.
Fortunately, it is often possible to improve the looks of scars surgically.
For scar treatment, a surgeon cuts the old scar out of the skin and then moves and tightens the surrounding skin. The procedure will result in a new scar that is smaller and prettier than the previous one.
The surgery may last up to 2 hours, depending on the size and location of the scar. Scar treatment is usually carried out under local anaesthesia.
In the case of large scars, it may be necessary to repeat the procedure after six to twelve months.
