A healed wound or surgery leaves scars. Sometimes scars are not so beautiful after healing. The plastic surgeon can make a scar more aesthetically pleasing with a scar correction or scar revision.

Why surgical scar correction?

Scar revision in plastic surgery, as for example after abdominoplasty, can improve the aesthetic result, in a second stage. Subtle scar adjustments can contribute to a smoother, more attractive appearance.
Scar correction, after surgery or after an accident, is a popular surgical treatment at Wellness Kliniek.

Surgical revision of a scar by a plastic surgeon means a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of an existing scar. This may involve reducing the size, changing the position or improving the colour and texture of the scar so that it becomes less noticeable and integrates better with the surrounding skin. Depending on the current scar, the appropriate technique is applied.

Scar revision by plastic surgeon. How is it done?

The choice of a specific scar revision depends on the characteristics of the scar, such as its size, location, age of the scar as well as your skin type. We use the following techniques:

  • Excision and repair: Removal of the old scar tissue and precise closure of the wound, often in multiple layers, to form a new, less noticeable scar.
  • Z-Plasty: A technique in which the scar is reoriented into a more natural skin line or skin fold by creating small, triangular skin flaps.
  • W-Plasty: A technique similar to Z-plasty, but with several small, zigzagging cuts, useful for beautifying scars that are too straight.
  • Skin grafting: Using healthy skin from another part of the body to cover areas where scar tissue has been removed.
  • Skin expansion: Placing a balloon expander under the skin near the scar to create extra skin for use in repairing the scarred area.

After a surgical scar revision, repeated non-surgical scar treatments such as laser therapy and microdermabrasion can help improve the texture of the scar and reduce redness. This often requires several treatments. We will refer you to a centre near you for this.

Is scar correction suitable for me?

Do you have an unsightly wound or scar from an accident or surgery? Does it cause you physical discomfort or simply make you feel very uncomfortable? Then you may be a suitable candidate for a scar correction. Of course, during a no-obligation consultation, we will assess whether your request can be met. After all, we want to correct the scar, and the doctor can assess that during an appointment.
