What is Scar Revision?
Often, injuries and surgeries give you scars as a farewell souvenir. Scars on the body or on areas that are mostly covered do not create many problems, but those in visible areas such as arms, face, and neck are not too good to look at.
They make a person look scary and raise questions in other’s heads immediately. Moreover, they also make the person who has them feel uncomfortable with them. A significant drawback of plastic surgeries back in the day was that they leave scars.
But medical sciences have progressed and introduced scar revision processes, making use of several different techniques to help you get rid of the horrible lines. Lutetia clinics have celebrity plastic surgeons who will allow you to be relieved of these scars.
When to consider Scar Revisions?

It is often recommended that you get the scar revisions after 60 to 90 days because the Scar needs to mature. In other cases, the scar revisions might need to be done after as long as a year so that the Scar has become light, and it is now suitable for it to be revised.
