What is a "scar"?

The scar occurs as a result of the normal wound healing event. No matter how carefully and duly repaired the incision caused by an injury or a surgical wound, a permanent scar is always formed. However, it is important that this permit is acceptable, hidden, and vague. The art of plastic surgery can only achieve this. There is not any no-scar surgery. There is no sewing technique called aesthetic stitching. Laser stitching is not possible.

The quality of the scar that will occur as a result of wound healing differs from person to person and body parts. Therefore, it is not possible to predict how the scar will happen. It may be stretched and erratic at first and becomes more smooth over time. Initially Reddish and swollen scars become softer and pale in 12-18 months.

The relationship between scar and sunlight is an important issue. Scarred areas are more sensitive to sunlight than normal skin. It is recommended that people who have surgery avoid strong and direct sunlight (such as sunbathing at the beach at noon) for 12-18 months. In daytime conditions, the face can be protected from the sun with high-value sunscreens (SPF, Sun Protection Factor) and wide-brimmed hats.

In the early stages of wound healing, sunbathing, or tanning in ultraviolet salons has a detrimental effect on scarred areas. In such a situation, scarred areas will have a variegated appearance. It also causes itching in areas with hot scarring. Therefore, it is necessary to avoid sunburn and broaching in the early period.

It is not possible to remove scars. The use of the recommended silicone gels and some devices may provide some improvement in the appearance of the scar, but can never be removed. For example, there is no method to remove burn marks, tattoo spots, and, cracks that occur after birth. However, the appearance of the traces can be corrected to a large extent

Surgical treatment of scar for any reason, called Scar Revision, is one of the difficult topics of plastic surgery. No scar can be completely destroyed. In Plastic Surgery, the appearance of scars can be more acceptable, less pronounced by massage and surgery, or hidden in natural anatomical areas such as the scalp. Many factors, such as the size and depth of the wound, the blood of the anatomical area of the wound, thickness, and color of the person’s skin, the direction of the scar, have an effect on the formation of scars. Scars that do not look good at first become more acceptable over time. The level of the scar will be accepted by the person may also differ from person to person.

It is recommended to wait 6-12 weeks after the first surgery or injury before making the decision for scar revision surgery.

Scar revision is the subject of plastic surgery. All details, positive and negative results should be discussed with the selected physician. One should determine their expectations very well.

As with any surgery, this surgery also has a risk. Normally, not very large and wide scars can be operated under local anesthesia. However, there is a possibility of infection, bleeding, and recurrence.

What is a "Keloid"?

Keloid can be described as an exaggerated wound healing event. The scar is usually thick, irregular, itchy and extends beyond the wound edges. It may be reddish or darker than the surrounding tissues.
Keloid can occur anywhere in the body. However, it mostly develops on the front of the trunk, shoulders, back, and earlobe. It occurs mostly in dark-skinned people. The chance of its appearance decreases as the age progresses.
Keloid steroid type, which is a type of abnormal wound healing, is treated by injection into the wound. This process reduces the reddish color and itching of the scar tissue. In some cases, it may cause shrinkage in. If this treatment does not respond, the scar tissue is removed surgically and the wound layer is sewn. This is a procedure that can be performed with local anesthesia. The person can return to work within 1-2 days. In large scars, skin transplantation may be necessary.
Whichever method is used, there is a tendency to recur in keloids. Sometimes it can appear in larger sizes than before. For this reason, both surgery and simultaneous steroid injections and a combination of treatment can be applied. It may be necessary to use special pressure bandages or clothes after surgery. This process can take up to 1 year.
Procedures applied in keloid treatment may need to be repeated every 2-3 years.

What is a "hypertrophic scar"?

It is a less exaggerated form of wound healing than keloid. It is mixed with keloid many times. The hypertrophic scar is separated from the keloid with the feature that it does not extend beyond the wound borders. Other features are similar. Its treatment is the same as for keloid.

What is a "contracture"?

Burn and wound healing leading to loss of tissue that can result in severe shrinkage in the region. This is called “Contraction”. Contractures emerging that would affect the underlying tissue in limitation of motion of the joint.

Contractures caused by burns or other causes can only be corrected by surgery. After removing the tissues caused by contracture, the wound is closed by skin transplant or other tissue removing methods called Flap such as Z-Plasty and W-Plasty.If necessary, tissue expansion methods are used. Physical therapy may be required after surgery.

Scars on face

Surgery or injury marks on the face can be a cosmetic problem since they are visible even if they are not hypertrophic scars. The treatment is the same. The scar can either be adjusted to normal facial lines or hidden by surgery. However, it can never be disappeared. The methods suggested outside the surgery may help make it less obvious. There is no treatment that completely eliminates scars with surgery and non-surgical methods. The aim should only be to provide a more acceptable appearance.

The doctor’s recommendations should be strictly followed after scar revision surgery, especially sunlight should be avoided. It should not be forgotten that it may take 6-12 months for the improvement in which the degree of improvement to be achieved depends on the size of the wound, its anatomical location, the quality of the skin structure of the person and post-operative care.
