Scar Revision

Dr Sellars performs scar revision surgery. Depending on the site, size and reason for the scar, these can be treated with revision surgery under local anaesthetic in the rooms or sedation/general anesthetic in hospital.

Some scars may be treated with steroid injections such as hypertrophic and keloid scars.

Scars can be caused by many factors such as:

  • Previous surgery
  • Traumatic injury
  • Piercings
  • Infections

Some scars may cause not only an aesthetic issue but can sometimes cause functional problems, such as tethering and contractures of skin.

Patients must have realistic expectations that not all scars can be improved, even with revision surgery.

Possible risks of any surgery include:

  • Wound infection
  • Pain and discomfort
  • Nausea
  • Haematoma (an accumulation of blood around the surgical site that may require drainage)
  • Heavy bleeding from the incisions
  • Keloid or hypertrophic scars
  • Slow healing
  • Separation of the wound edges
  • Allergies to anaesthetic agents, antiseptics, suture material or dressings
  • Deep vein thrombosis DVT (blood clot in the leg)
