The Lancaster General Health Experience
Preparation for and recovery after scar revision
During your consultation with one of our cosmetic surgeons, we will develop a plan that helps meet your goals, taking into consideration the extent and location of your scar.
We will explain that recovery times vary because different areas of the body heal differently. For example, surgery to repair a leg scar may take two weeks to heal, while a face procedure may take a week or less.
You can help speed the healing process by following care instructions we provide. We are always available to address any questions and concerns you may have.
Scar treatment risks
Like any surgery, scar revision surgery is typically safe, but does carry risks for infection, bleeding, or the recurrence of the scar. Help avoid these, by following your care team’s pre- and post-operative instructions and reach out to us with any concerns that arise throughout your recovery process.
