POST SURGICAL SCARS

Even in the hands of the most experienced surgeons, post-surgical scarring is very difficult to avoid but can be treated with outstanding results, especially when treated early.

 

Dr Manoharan has successfully treated many post surgical scars, including scars from skin cancer treatments (eg. flaps, grafts, excisions) as well as a range of elective (eg. breast augmentation) and medical (eg. c-section, mastectomy, organ transplant) surgeries.

 

There are many factors that contribute to the quality of your wound healing, including age, genetic predisposition and the postoperative wound care. In addition, there are other medical considerations such as growth factors and inflammatory mediators that make up the healing timeline that Dr Manoharan assesses in formulating a treatment plan for a scar.

 

Dr Manoharan will formulate a personalised and considered treatment plan to discuss with every patient.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

Injections

Steroid, Fluorouracil and Muscle relaxing injections are inserted underneath raised scars to break down the scar tissue and flatten their appearance. Their anti-inflammatory properties also help reduce the appearance of the scar.

Vascular Laser

The pulsed dye laser delivers energy at a wavelength that targets redness in the skin. It is therefore an excellent tool which is often used in combination with other treatments to reduce the appearance of red scars and provide optimal results.

Non-ablative Laser

Fractionated lasers deliver energy in micro-columns to the skin, leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged. This method is at the forefront of acne scar treatment, as it enables scars to be treated at depth, with little discomfort and a reduced recovery time.

Fractional Resurfacing

Fractionated lasers deliver energy in micro-columns to the skin, leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged. This method is at the forefront of acne scar treatment, as it enables scars to be treated at depth, with little discomfort and a reduced recovery time.

Ablative Resurfacing

Ablative laser treatment is effective in the revision of severe acne scars for those who are prepared for a longer downtime period in return for dramatic results. In addition to removing damaged skin, the laser stimulates underlying skin cells to trigger collagen production to break down scars. Dr. Manoharan is one of the country’s most experienced specialists in Erbium:YAG and CO2 lasers for the treatment of severe acne scars.
