An ugly skin scar can stigmatize anyone’s personality. Its improvement can be done using specialized surgical techniques and proper medical treatment.
To treat the scar properly, a right diagnosis and clinical evaluation is necessary. Dr. Stavrou uses a number of different surgical techniques and modern medication to improve the looks of a scar and any functional impairments related to it.
The procedure is done under topical anesthesia although light sedation might be necessary in bigger scars. In some cases, in order to complete the treatment, a staging procedure might be necessary according to the size of the scar.
Recovery depends on the extent of the procedure. You can fully return to your everyday activities within 1-2 weeks. The appearance of the scar will improve gradually during the next 6-8 weeks and finalize after 6-12 months.
Skin care and sun protection is necessary during the recovery period.
