Accidents, surgery, burns, infections or dermatological problems can cause physical scars to occur that may become more than skin deep. The Durdans Hospital enhance Cosmetic Centre is a dedicated facility with the capacity for state of the art aesthetic and reconstructive surgeries and cosmetic enhancements, where individualised scar management and removal solutions offered, have the potential to restore confidence about one’s appearance.
Minimally invasive, non surgical therapy available for scar management include steroid injections, fillers, laser treatment, PRP and steroid injections and a wide range of specialised scar treatment modalities. Steroid and PRP injections have the ability to visibly change the quality of the scar that may have resulted from injury, trauma or surgery. Laser and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy treatment are used for those with acne scars, pigmentation, keloids and major burns, where the scar tissue is rejuvenated from within. Fillers can recontour pit and indented scars to improve their appearance. Elevated scars such as those resulting from caesarean section and other surgeries can be made flatter, lighter, softer and pain-free by using scar solutions.
Surgical options of scar removal such as excisions, redirections, resurfacing, skin grafts, Zplasty, Wplasty, stem cells and fat injections are utilised. In these procedures scar tissue is removed or altered through surgical maneouvers resulting in a superior, long-term outcome.
When scars are inevitable in surgeries such as Caesarian section, scar planning can be done to aim for the best possible scar, one that will minimise the visibility of the scar. Scar planning is done pre-surgery and administered post-surgery.
