Any laceration (cut) or surgical incision will leave a scar. The way a scar heals is dependent on several factors including: location of the injury, genetics, tension under closure and surgical technique. Hypertrophic or widened scars are usually the result of tension or poor wound healing, and are often amenable to scar revision. Hypertrophic scars (widened) scars are usually the result of tension or poor wound healing and are often amenable to scar revision. Plastic surgeons are well versed in the mechanics of skin closure and have the ability to achieve finer scars through various techniques in tissue manipulation and suturing. Steroid injections may be used in conjunction with your scar revision to help achieve your optimal scarring result.
