MAKING YOU, MORE YOU

Specialist Scar Revision is surgical and medical management to improve the appearance of a scar.

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

All surgery results in scars, however sometimes the size, position, and appearance of scars can make them noticeable and unsightly.

Specialist Scar Revision is surgical and medical management to improve the appearance of a scar. Treatment can change the shape, colour, and texture of the scar so that it blends with the surrounding skin. The wound becomes less prominent so that you are no longer feel uncomfortable or self-conscious about your scar.

My tummy hangs over my appendix scar, so it always looks lumpy. What can be done?

Appendix scars are at risk of becoming puckered and causing an overhang of fatty tissue when standing. Scar excision, together with Vaser Liposculpture, can be very effective. We can remove excess fatty tissue using Vaser, and the treatment also has a skin tightening effect, helping the wound lie flat.

I have acne scars, can they be treated?

Acne scars can be quite challenging to treat; however, the team at Bella Vou can significantly improve your complexion.

YOUR SIMPLE
5 STEP
JOURNEY

YOUR SIMPLE 5 STEP JOURNEY

Step 1. Free, no-obligation consultation

Bella Vou offers every client a free consultation with an expert, accredited cosmetic surgeon with no obligation to proceed to treatment. The consultation is an opportunity to discuss the concerns you have with your scar and what you want to achieve.

Bella Vou will always give you an honest and impartial professional opinion. Mr Amir Nakhdjevani says:

‘We make sure that we advise people correctly about whether surgery is right for them. We treat everyone as if they were our family. We might turn people away, suggest alternative treatments, or we may suggest that they go to a different specialist at another establishment. If someone is uncertain about an operation, we're happy to see them several times, without a consultation charge. At Bella Vou, we never pressurise people or try to sell procedures. It's always about giving an honest opinion and honest advice.’

Step 2. Meet your surgeon

You will be offered another appointment with your consultant before proceeding to surgery. This will give you a chance to find out more about the procedure, your recovery, and to ask any questions you may have.

Step 3. Preparation for Scar Revision surgery

Preparation can help aid wound healing and improve your final result. You may be asked to stop taking some medicines such as aspirin and ibuprofen to prevent bruising and bleeding. Quitting smoking can help improve wound healing and prevent complications.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll be personally welcomed to Bella Vou, given a gown to wear and escorted to the state-of-the-art operating theatre, where your surgeon will greet you.

Step 4. What happens during scar excision surgery?

The specialist surgeon carefully cleanses the skin and injects local anaesthetic to ensure the area is totally numb.

The surgeon makes an elliptical incision in the skin around the existing scar. They will aim to follow the natural creases and folds in the skin so that the scar will be less noticeable. They will carefully remove the skin containing the scar and carefully stitch the wound closed. The sutures are hidden under the skin and absorbable, so they do not need removal. Following surgery, the wound is covered with a simple dressing.

Step 5. Recovery from Scar Revision

After Scar Revision excision surgery, most people can go home the same day. You should rest and recover for the rest of the day and avoid bending, stretching, or heavy lifting for two weeks.

If your previous scar became keloid or stretched, your wound healing will be carefully monitored by the wound care team at Bella Vou. Specialist dressings will be applied to reduce the risk of keloid formation, and you will be advised to avoid mobilising the area of the scar to prevent it from coming under tension. It's essential to stay out of the sun to prevent hyperpigmentation of the scar.

The staff at Bella Vou will always be on hand following surgery to offer you support and to answer any questions.
