Any injury to the skin, whether caused by a surgeon’s scalpel or another traumatic event, will leave a scar. Scars can be improved both surgically and non-surgically, and often all that is required is an understanding of the process of scar modulation, which takes place over a period of approximately two years, and patience.

When this process goes awry, or scars leave the patient with debilitating deformities or functional impairment, several surgical reconstructive procedures can be performed to improve both function and aesthetics.

No scar can ever be removed permanently, and the main aim of scar revision is to minimise a scar, so that it becomes less conspicuous, and blends with the surrounding skin and skin tone.

Your safety is essential and will remain the primary concern in reconstructive procedures. Any reconstructive procedure will be tailored to you, considering the best aesthetic outcome, and the impact the reconstruction may have on your lifestyle.
