Atrophic Scar After Abdominal or Orthopedic Surgery
Both abdominal and orthopedic surgeries are commonly associated with complex healing, including the development of atrophic scars. If you have had major surgery, it is important that the wound heals clean and that scarring is minimal. Atrophic scar tissue makes the site of the incision more visible to the naked eye, which may cause low self-esteem for many patients.
Dr. Kenrick Spence and his team are uniquely qualified to assess your needs when you develop atrophic scars after abdominal surgery. A consultation can take place in a virtual space, allowing patients from anywhere in the world to benefit from the treatment recommendations of Dr. Spence. If atrophic scars are forming around a wound, you can access effective modalities at the International Keloid & Scar Treatment Center in Orlando.
Atrophic scars form under the skin and appear thinned and are often lighter in appearance. There are three distinct types, and treatment is often complex, unless performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. At the International Keloid & Scar Treatment Center, Dr. Kenrick Spence provides individualized treatment options for atrophic scars that are based on the results of a detailed consultation.
Orthopedic surgeries are typically carried out on or close to joints. The formation of atrophic scars can cause discomfort and may limit mobility in severe cases. It is important to go through an in-depth consultation with Dr. Spence or a member of his team if you have noticed the development of what looks like atrophic scars after an orthopedic surgery.
