Get rid of scars

Scar revision is a surgical procedure that aims to improve or minimize the appearance of scars. Additionally, it restores function and corrects disfigurement caused by an injury, wound, inadequate healing, or previous surgery like C section scars.

One of the most common surgeries that women endure is cesarean birth, sometimes referred to as cesarean surgery.

While the majority of C-section surgeries result in scarcely perceptible horizontal scars under the underwear line, scar formation like big, elevated, discolored, uncomfortable, or even vertical scars can occur.  ( aka hypertropic scars )

Cesarean scar revision is used to minimize the size of the keloid scar left behind following a C-section, remove scar tissue and to give the scar a more modest appearance.

A scar revision procedure is frequently performed in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments such as breast augmentation, stomach tuck, or “mommy makeover,” which may comprise a mix of breast lift, liposuction, and/or body contouring.

SCAR TREATMENT

The standard procedure for revising a cesarean scar is to open the incision and adequately close it again using a precise surgical technique to minimize its size. When surgery is conducted alone, it is performed under IV/local sedation. 

When performed in conjunction with another procedures (such as breast augmentation or lift), it is done under general anesthesia. Typically, the operation takes about two hours. Because dissolvable stitches are employed, no stitches need to be removed following the procedure. Y

You can generally return home the same day, and recovery takes about a week. An abdominoplasty may be necessary in some cases where the muscle has been severed or extra skin. Scar repair is included in abdominoplasty surgery.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is it possible to repair my C-section scar?

Abdominoplasty is one procedure that can help enhance both the aesthetics of the abdomen and the C-section scar. 

The abdominal wall skin is tightened, and excess, sagging skin is removed during an abdominoplasty.

When is it appropriate to undergo surgery?

You may be able to postpone surgery until the scar is lighter. This could take several months or perhaps a year following the wound’s healing. 

It is preferable to have revision surgery on certain scars 60 to 90 days after the scar has grown.

Is scar revision surgery an unpleasant procedure?

It will be performed under either general or regional anesthesia by your surgeon. General anesthesia is a mixture of intravenous (IV) drugs and gases that induce a deep sleep state in the patient. 

You will be unaware of the treatment and will experience no discomfort.

How long does it take to heal?

Following surgical scar removal, the early healing period may include regional swelling, discoloration, or discomfort and may last between one and two weeks. 

Healing will continue after several weeks, and the new scar will gradually refine and diminish as it heals.

How long does it take for an internal C-section to heal?

As with any operation, your body will require time to heal following the procedure. Expect to stay in the hospital for three to four days following delivery (longer if complications occur), and allow up to six weeks for your body to heal entirely.

How is it performed?

The Z-plastic surgery is used to correct more severe scars. 

The surgeon makes cuts on both sides of the scar and creates angled flaps that can be used to relocate or change the orientation of the scar, release the scar’s tension, and conceal the scar.

Is IT genuinely effective?

While scar revision does not entirely eliminate a scar, it does help to minimize its visibility and acceptability. 

A scar might be revised surgically or non-surgically. With careful preparation, solid technique, and experience, the development of postoperative problems and ugly scars can be minimized.

What is scar revision surgery for plastic surgery?

Scar revision is a type of surgery used to improve the condition or look of any scar on the body. 

Scars come in a variety of forms. ( Hypertropic scars, keloid scars, etc. ) Discoloration or abnormalities of the skin’s surface, as well as other more minor scars, can be corrected aesthetically through surgery or other treatments prescribed by your plastic surgeon.

Are cesarean scars reversible?

C-section scars can be effectively and consistently eliminated with surgical scar correction, which tries to diminish the appearance of a scar by blending it into the surrounding skin tone and texture. 

The period required for recovery varies by patient. There are, however, daily activities you can take to eliminate the cesarean scar and ensure it heals fast and correctly, such as utilizing an aftercare lotion in conjunction with the surgery to guarantee appropriate recovery. 

This is something that your surgeon will recommend.

Is the cost of a cesarean scar correction covered by insurance?

Yes, insurance may pay the cost of cesarean scar revision in some situations. 

However, each insurance company is unique, so it’s critical to speak with both your insurance company and the attending physician. 

In most circumstances, you will need to have documented concerns creating severe functioning impairments, as well as an examination of your symptoms. 

The insurance company will then make the ultimate determination.

MonaLisa Touch is a new type of therapeutic treatment for conditions associated with vulvo-vaginal atrophy. MonaLisa Touch is a fractional CO2 laser with vaginal probe that delivers targeted electrical impulses to the vaginal tissue (mucosa) to revitalize the cells, promoting the production of collagen and elastin. 

It also increases vascularization and hydration levels in this way. There is also a vulvar probe that delivers electrical impulses in the vulvar area. 

The laser treatment takes only minutes to perform and stimulates collagen production in the soft tissues. 

The process stimulates soft tissue regeneration, which results in: 

  • Vaginal tissue tightening and elasticity 
  • Increased lubrication 
  • Enhanced blood flow 
  • Improved pH levels 

The procedure reactivates some of the processes that the vagina previously performed. 

Women often report improved sexual function and fewer urinary symptoms after having the treatment.
