Scars can develop differently depending on genetical dispositions, the cause of the trauma and surgical suture techniques. Usually a scar gets more red or pink during the first months and fades after 6-12 month so that it becomes almost invisible.
Hypertrophic scars can be painful and functional disruptive and cause a restriction of movement. If conservative treatments such as cortison injections do not help, a surgical scar correction can reach a better result.
A surgical scar correction is usually done under local anaesthesia in an outpatient procedure.
