Scars left after surgery / what should be done?

You have had or will have an operation, you should know that there is no surgery without a scar. A concept called aesthetic stitching is bullshit. Laser suturing is nothing short of deception. Aesthetic surgery and scars are already the work of the plastic surgeon and his art. All possible traces are duly discarded in an acceptable and concealable manner. But it is impossible to know in advance how the scar / scar will form. It may vary from person to person, according to the anatomical region where the operation will be performed, the structure of your skin, blood supply, color, thickness, whether you smoke or not and the way the operation takes place. You can predict some of it. Look at the condition of the old scars on your body (on your knee, cesarean section scar, etc.), think similarly. Each post-operative scar will initially be red, raised, taut and irregular, and then smooth over time, becoming soft and pale. If the scars look uncomfortable, puffy, itchy, out of bounds and persist even after 6-12 months, there is a problem. But from the beginning of the post-operative period, you will be given a schedule of methods to care for your wound. First of all, massage is important. After your stitches are removed, deep massages 3-5 times a day will prevent healing by sticking to the tissue under your skin, accelerate the maturation of your wound, prevent irregularities and redness. Creams and devices can also improve scars to a certain extent, although they cannot eliminate them. It may be helpful to list the care and treatment as follows: First, a correct wound care, especially by a plastic surgeon, adequate dressing and rest, balanced diet, no smoking, massage, silicone bands if necessary, steroid / cortisone injection into the scar if there is a problem, solarium and sunscreen. A recovery period away from mechanical and chemical traumas is important. If your complaints have not resolved after 6-12 months, your doctor will evaluate you and if necessary, local anesthesia, laser, dermabrasion and cell spray applications will be recommended.
