Poor Scarring of Breast Corrective Surgery

Poor Scarring of Breast Corrective Surgery – Patients who have undergone plastic surgical procedures may have unsatisfactory scarring.  There are a number of different ways in which scars can be suboptimal.  Sometimes, scars stretch out or become excessively widened; sometimes, scars become darker than desirable (particularly in patients who have more pigmentation in their skin).  On other occasions, scars can become thicker, raised and red which is a condition known as “hypertrophic scarring.”  In certain individuals, the scar actually begins to grow large in size than the original incision, a condition termed a “keloid scar.”  All of these scar abnormalities can be treated with modern plastic surgery techniques.
