What is a Scar?
Scar; cosmetic problem caused by loss of integrity on skin (epidermis and dermis) caused by various reasons such as tarvma, incision, operation.
Will the scar?
This is one of the most common questions we have encountered. The most important factor determining the scar is genetic. For example, the scars on the brunette and oily skin are more fluffy and noticeably healed, whereas the scarring of dry, thin wrinkled, pale skin remains less scar, and this scar is often unclear when viewed remotely.
Another factor that determines the scar, is the localization of the wound. The scar on the dorsum or the midline of the chest is obvious, but in areas such as the eyelid, scarring is often unclear when viewed from a distance.
Tension in the wound is another factor that determines the scar. The scar on skins is less noticeable, for example, the skin’s elasticity is reduced in the elderly and so the skin becomes wrinkled. Elderly patients leave scar less. However, the scar in the skin is visible, for example, in children, the skin is elastic and stretched, the wound heals fast, but the scar can be reddened. And scarring widens with the growth of the body in children, so children should be aware of the scars on the scalp.
The direction of the scar is also important. For example, in the face, the parallel cuts formed by the facial muscles are less scar.
Surgical Technique also has an important place. It is necessary to use subcutaneous suture materials that will reduce the tension in the scar by using suture materials that will not create a suture scar.
The two images also show wrinkle lines on the face. The incisions parallel to the wrinkle lines leave less marks than vertical cuts.
Do Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery Doctors Should They Stand After Any Causes?
Yeah. Because Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery dokroru is a specialist in the field of scar treatment and follow-up. For example, he knows which sewing technique and sewing material should be used in which wound. It also makes treatment and follow-up of the scar. The most important thing to remember is that the scar will remain in the full-thickness skin incisions (for example, in the incisions involving the deep layers of the epidermis and dermis). The goal here is to minimize scarring.
Is there scar treatment, what is there?
The treatment of scarring varies according to the duration of scarring, but there are many different types of scarring treatments. It should be at least 1 year for a scar. In the first 6 months of this year, the scar can be made less specific by special creams or with some silicone layers. After 1 year, if there is still a significant sign, carbon dioxide laser, peeling (weakening with acidic substances) or again after the removal of the surgeon as a surgeon to reduce the scar, the option to be more carefully sewn can be tried.
