A scar is a blemish on beautiful face or body skin. It may occur following some injury, burn or infection in past. In this case, laser treatment for acne scars is a good choice.
As it is an end result of any healing process, it is unavoidable. But, lack of perfection in suturing or occurrence of infection after suturing leads to the formation of widened/ raised/ depressed or pigmented scar. Sometimes it distorts surrounding structures causing unsightly deformity, particularly on the face. Rarely, it may happen because of a tendency of the skin to form a bad scar.
Plastic surgery helps you by reducing visibility or making it nearly invisible by certain surgical maneuvers/ alterations, i.e. replacement of an undesirable scar with a more pleasant and favorable scar.
Scar surgery is not merely re-suturing of skin but needs delicate tissue handling and perfect tissue approximation so demands the surgical expertise of a Plastic surgeon. Direction and location of a scar are very important. Sometimes we need to change a direction of a scar to improve it by certain Plastic Surgery maneuvers like Z- Plasty, W- Plasty. Scar with the much larger area is best treated surgically by Serial Excision or Tissue Expansion.
We make skin numb (pain-free) by topical or local anesthesia. A big scar may need regional or general anesthesia.
After scar revision, the new scar is immature and takes about a year to mature. It is very important to follow the instructions of the cosmetic surgeon to guide the scar to a more favorable outcome. Exposure to sunlight can induce hyperpigmentation (dark color) in an immature scar. Sunscreens may be prescribed and should be used as instructed.
Depending on individual cases, certain creams may be advised to be massaged locally over the scar area for several weeks to help smoothen and soften a scar.
Vitiligo or Leukoderma is a common problem which is socially unacceptable.
A common myth about a Vitiligo/ Leukoderma/ White skin patch is- it always occurs because of internal genetic/blood problem. In reality, it may occur following external injury to the skin like trauma/ burn/ infection also. IPL skin treatment can be a good option for removing Vitiligo.
If Vitiligo is progressing, it should be treated first by medical treatment to make it stable or to reduce in size. After it is stable in size, we recommend surgical removal and skin grafting for a residual lesion. Some difficult Vitiligo patches not responding to medical treatment needs surgical removal. Excision is our preferred technique in a smaller area to give a best possible color match. We use Dermabrasion + Skin grafting for larger lesions.
White skin patch following Trauma or Burn or Infection (External origin) almost always needs surgical removal and suturing/ skin grafting.
