 Hypertrophic Scars
                     

Scars are unpredictable, whether they are caused by surgery or an accident. The formation of a scar depends as much upon the way your body heals as it does on the nature of the injury or the surgeon’s skill in repairing it.

The factors that affect scarring after a wound include the size and severity of the wound, its shape and direction, the original color and thickness of your skin, and the blood supply to the injured area. Whether a scar is severe enough to merit plastic surgery is a personal decision, and is different for each patient.

It is impossible to remove a scar completely. However, plastic surgery can often do much to lessen the severity of a scar, making it less noticeable by applying or injecting steroids or through scar revision, a commonly used surgical procedure.

If you are thinking about having your scar treated through plastic surgery, the following information may help you with your decision. Since each person scars differently, it cannot cover every facet of your particular situation, so make sure to involve your doctor in your decision-making process.

  Hypertrophic Scars

Hypertrophic scars are initially similar in appearance to keloids; both are thick, raised, and red or darker than the surrounding skin. However, hypertrophic scars do not grow over the boundaries of the original wound. They are not as stubborn as keloids, and they often shrink on their own over time. The healing process may take a year or more, but steroid treatment can help it along.

If non-invasive treatment is not working, hypertrophic scars can be improved surgically as well. The plastic surgeon will remove excess scar tissue and may change the pattern of the incision so that it heals in a less visible manner.
