Scar Tissue Revision
Scar revision is a surgical procedure for partial removal or alleviation of scars caused by previous surgery or some accidents.
Depending on the tension of the tissues and the anatomical region, scar tissue is surgically removed and repaired appropriately. Different applications can be made from re-sewing of the track, changing the direction of the track and removing the width, and, if necessary, transplanting the skin.
Scar tissue revision is not performed within one year after the injury except in special cases. The procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia under operating room conditions. All kinds of precautions will be taken in order to reduce the postoperative scars, medication massage will be recommended.
