Scar Revision is a solution for individuals who wish to remove scars that are clearly visible, such as on their faces, hands, and joints (impairing movements). The operation will make the scars less noticeable, improve joint-related movements, and even pain and itchiness in some cases.
The main approaches include regular stitching, skin graft, and local flap. Deciding which approach to use will depend on the size and position of the scar. The “new” scar will still be clearly visible after the operation, but it will shrink and fade during the first 1 to 1.5 years, after which it will remain the same.
