Home Surgical Procedures Scar Revision
Accidents, burns or even operations, can leave unsightly scars on patients which can be  very distressing.

Scar revision is the surgical removal or correction of scars. Healthy tissue is re-approximated in layers to favour a normal healing process which produces as more esthetically pleasing scar.

This procedure is usually performed under local or regional anaesthesia as an ambulatory or day-case procedure. Stitches are usually removed after 7 to 14 days depending on the area and problem  even though the healing process can take anything from 3 to 9 months.
