Post-Op ScarsPosted on June 12, 2017
If there was one downfall to plastic surgery that most patients are constantly worried about, it would be visible scars after surgery. Patients that are having plastic surgery done are usually more worried about scarring that patients receiving other types of surgery. Why is this?
Well the answer is simple. Plastic surgery is meant to enhance the patient’s appearance and, in most cases, give them a better sense of self-confidence. Having scars to worry about is just another problem on the body. With other surgeries, the reason behind it is usually medical and the surgery is needed in order to maintain good health.
So what can we do in order to reduce the appearance of scars on the face or body when it comes to plastic surgery?
Taking the proper steps during recovery definitely helps and proper wound care can also become a factor in scars. So what are the steps to proper wound care? You can talk to your plastic surgeon about all the steps in order to properly care for yourself after surgery.
