Scar Correction

Imperceptible Scars

Scar formation is an individual process and is genetically predetermined. Unfavourable positioning of a scar or other external influences can lead to bulging or widened scars. In this case, surgical scar correction can be helpful.

There are several techniques that can be used alone or in combination, e.g. multiple excision, skin grafting, localised dermaplasty or skin stretching.
