Scars! Scars!! & Scars!!!

Scars are a menace that nobody wants, but many have to live with. Senior cosmetic surgeons with modern gadgets can help reduce scars, many times to the great satisfaction of the patients.

Surgery (Scar revisions), excisions, skin grafting, laser resurfacing, laser perforations, platelet-rich plasma therapy, fat injections, non-peeling laser sittings & spectrum of other modalities are available with us. Depending upon the needs, the relevant modalities will be used alone or in combination.

* Injury scars: Scars of old/ fresh injury which were not managed well at the time of injury, can look bad especially when on the face and exposed areas. A senior cosmetic surgeon may offer a lot of improvement with his astute decision.

* Post-surgery scars: Many times scars following surgical operations are not acceptable to the patient. The scars may not be removed but may be significantly reduced by revision scar surgery, lasers, and other modalities.

* Acne scars: Big demand is there from youngsters and marriageable age adults for acne scar management. Different modalities may offer significant improvement in the scars, pigmentation, and general outlook of the face.

* Pox marks: Chicken pox marks (And old patients with smallpox marks) are hated by most patients. A single ugly pox mark may spoil the whole beauty of a face. Lasers, subcisions, and fat grafting may help greatly improve the scars.

* Post-cancer reconstruction scars: Again revision surgery, flap surgery, and lasers may come to the rescue and offer modest improvements.

* Hypertrophic scars: Elevated red scars may be improved greatly with lasers, supportive pressure therapy, and silicon sheets.

* Keloids: Hated by all, may improve with lasers and additional treatment modalities. Itching and size may reduce and overall appearance may improve. Prevention of recurrence cannot be guaranteed.

*Post-Burn Scars, Contractures & Pigmentation: Fire burns, scalds (Hot liquid burns), electric burns, contact burns, and even sunburn may leave behind ugly scarring, contractures, and pigmentation.

While surgeries, lasers & other modalities are used, total elimination may not be possible. However, in many patients, reasonable rehabilitation may be offered.

* Pigmented scars: Many times the scar may not be the issue, but surrounding pigmentation is. Here lasers and some conservative modalities come to the rescue.

* Tracheostomy scars: Are a specific group. Here a serious patient in whom during intensive care treatment a hole is made in the windpipe for breathing. When a patient is sent home, this leaves behind an ugly scar which may be significantly improved by a senior cosmetic surgeon.

* Post-infection scars: Infection, abscesses, furuncles, and infected pimples may leave behind ugly scars, which may be amenable to certain treatment modalities.
