Reconstruction and Scar Revision in Charleston, SC
Scars just don't physically affect people: they can negatively affect a person's self-esteem as well. The good news is scar revision procedures are available to help reduce or completely eliminate your scars and help restore your self-confidence.
If You Are Considering Scar Revision
Scars are unpredictable, regardless of whether they are the result of surgery or an accident. The development of the scars depends on the extent of the initial injury and just how efficiently your body is able to heal itself. Other factors that affect the severity of scars include blood supply to the site, the direction of the wound, the thickness and color of your skin and the size and depth of the wound. On the other hand, how the scars affect your life and how much they bother you is more of a personal issue rather than a physical one. While no scar can be completely removed, an experienced plastic surgeon can improve how they look and make them less obvious to others by using surgical scar revision or by injecting or applying steroid medications to the scars.
