All injuries and operations leave permanent scars. In most cases, scars heal well but sometimes they can be disfiguring, sore, itchy or indented. Although it is impossible to make a scar disappear, with expert help it is possible to improve them.
Once a scar has formed it cannot be removed. Most scars fade with time leaving a fine, pale line that is hard to see. But if your scar is indented, raised, red and fiery, or has become thick, bulky and painful, then speak to one of our experienced consultant plastic surgeons.
