What is the recovery and care after scar reconstruction?
After surgical scar revision surgery there may be swelling and discoloration which will gradually decrease over several weeks. The new scar will fade and reconfigure as healing continues over months. Dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, chemical peels make the skin sensitive requiring moisturizing and lubrication. Post-operative care instructions are given after each procedure.
Sun screen and shielding newly treated skin from the sun is essential for successful healing.
