Surgical technique for Scar Treatment in Kanpur:

The scar revision surgery in Kanpur is made through incisions along its entire length. The incision can be made approximately one millimeter inside the scar or approximately one millimeter outside the scar, depending on each case. After making the incisions, the surgeon removes the entire scar using a scalpel or delicate scissors.

Internal absorbable stitches are made, and the external part can be done with intra-dermal stitches (which are hidden inside the incision) or simple stitches. You can also choose to close the incision using a biological tape with glue, which seals the incision completely and allows the patient to shower and wet the operated area on the same day. This surgery can be done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation.

Scar types:

  • Discoloration, surface irregularities, and more subtle scars can be aesthetically improved with surgery or treatments recommended by the plastic surgeon. These scars, which do not impair function or cause physical discomfort, include scars from acne, minor injuries, and previous surgical incisions.
  • Hypertrophic scars are thick clumps of scar tissue that develop at the healing site. These scars are usually raised, red, and/or uncomfortable, and may become larger over time. They can be hyperpigmented (darker in color) or hypopigmented (lighter in color).
  • Keloids are larger than hypertrophic scars and can be painful, itchy, and also wrinkled. They extend beyond the edges of an initial wound or incision and can occur anywhere on the body, but are more common in places where there is little underlying fat tissue, such as the face, neck, ears, chest, and neck. on the shoulders.
  • Contractures are scars that restrict movement due to the joining of the skin and underlying tissue during healing. Contractures occur when there is a large amount of tissue loss and can also form where the wound joins the joint, restricting the articulation of the fingers, elbows, knees, and neck.
