Understanding Scars and Keloids

Every cut or injury to the skin leaves a mark. Scars vary, and factors like skin type and location influence their appearance. While faces and necks generally form inconspicuous scars, areas like the chest may develop hypertrophic scars or keloids, especially in individuals with darker skin.

Hypertrophic Scar vs. Keloid

Distinguish between hypertrophic scars, resolving over time, and keloids, aggressive scars that grow beyond the wound.

Hypertrophic Scar

Keloid

Scar Revisions

Scar revision is usually done under local anaesthesia when it is felt that a scar can be improved because of particular circumstances or complications of healing in the first instance, or because the procedure is likely to be carried out in a better manner.

The old scar is removed by one of several plastic surgery techniques and is repaired. Post operative pain is usually minimal. Sutures are usually removed in 4 to 6 days from the face and 7 to 10 days from other parts of the body.

However, dissolving sutures are frequently used on the trunk and limbs to avoid stitch marks. Stitch marks are much less likely to appear on the face as the stitches are removed early. All new scars will initially be red. Fading occurs within 6 to 24 months depending on the scar's location and the patient's skin type.

Z-Plasty Technique

A Z-plasty is used to reduce the tightness or contracture of the scar making it more comfortable and less conspicuous. It may also be used to change the position of a scar and by reducing tightness improve healing. A Z-plasty is performed by raising two adjacent skin flaps and transposing the flaps (putting each flap where the other one was - see illustration). Laser treatment can also be used to blur the edges of the scar and minimise surface irregularities.

Alternative Treatment Suggestions

Time is the best healer as eventually normal scars and hypertrophic scars will mature and become pale. We tend however to try and treat more severe hypertrophic scars and keloids.
