Scar after Plastic Surgery

While every individual heals a little differently, all patients can expect some scarring to form along the incision lines after plastic surgery. Plastic Surgeons often choose the location, direction and incision that is least visible after healing. No matter what, a talented, board-certified plastic surgeon will make sure your scar is well-concealed within the natural skin and body’s anatomy. A specific and individualized scar management regiment should be discussed during your consultation, ranging from specialized silicone sheets to silicone gel or a combination of the two. Your plastic surgeon’s post-op instructions will be based on your unique needs and skin quality.
