Patients often worry about the visibility of scars after a plastic surgery procedure. While the scars won't completely disappear, they can blend in with the surrounding skin to the point of being barely noticeable. This is how the body heals from any injury to the skin. The good news is that plastic surgeons are well-versed in placing incisions in areas that are less likely to be seen. Most people will heal their incisions well, but some may experience issues due to local problems such as delayed healing, superficial infection, or poor postoperative wound care.
Additionally, some individuals are genetically predisposed to developing large, protruding scars called keloids. Despite our best efforts, sometimes the incisions don't heal as well as we'd like. Scarring after surgery varies greatly from person to person. Some patients' skin is less capable of forming small, discrete scars than that of others. Therefore, it is important to choose a plastic surgeon who is experienced and knowledgeable in this area. Scars are a natural part of the healing process after plastic surgery, but with the right approach and surgical techniques, they can be hidden.
