First of all, it should be noted that every time the skin integrity is impaired, there is a wound healing process and the wounds heal by leaving more or less a scar behind. The important thing here is the quality of this scar. Scars that are thin, of the same colour as the skin, non-swollen and not noticeable at first sight do not require any intervention. However; fluffy, big, itchy and red-purple coloured scars need revision. The complete removal of the scars is not possible today, but plastic surgeons can improve the appearance of these scars and reduce them to acceptable limits.


In the early period, creams, silicone gel applications and injections can be used to soften the scars and to lighten their colour. Whereas in the late period, surgical procedures called scar revisions can be performed. These surgical procedures consist of different applications including removing the bad scar and re-stitching it, changing the direction of the scar and removing its width, and, if necessary, skin transplantation. This surgical correction, called scar revision, is not performed until one year after the injury except in special cases.
