What is scar removal procedure?
Scar removal is a very tricky area for any of us in plastic surgery because it is unpredictable.
Scars themselves depends on many factors and these factors include your ethnic background. Meaning that certain ethnic people tend to get worse scars than others.
Does scarring differ from individual to individual?
Certain ethnic people tend to get the worst scars than others.
For instance, if you have darker skin you can get thicker scars. If you have lighter skin like many of the Caucasians your scar tends to be much better and flat.
Then even within the ethnic population, certain people just develop thick scars and you don't think that they would.
Scars not only depend on the ethnic nature of the patient but also on the location where it is.
What causes bad scarring?
If you close these cuts in the different parts of your body under a lot of tension, you really pull the skin together to close it that scar will be worse.
If you have a contaminated wound that scar will be worse. If it becomes infected like when you have a dog bite or a human bite then that scar can be really bad.
Scar is a huge subject and it depends on who it is and what part of the body and how you got it on.
