Scar Revision

Scars are an inevitable result of wounds from injuries or following surgery. Scars usually heal well over time.

In some circumstances scarring may not be optimal. Scars may be thickened, widened or depressed. Hypertrophic scars are thickened scars that are contained within the boundaries of the original wound. Keloid scars are thickened scars that grow outside the original wound borders. For the best results, scar management should be performed by a wound care specialist. Dr Pyragius offers a comprehensive approach to improve the appearance of all types of scars.
