Post Operative Question Answer

How long will the scars from the surgery take to heal, and what can I do to promote optimal scar healing?

The duration for scars to heal can vary based on the procedure performed and individual healing factors. Generally, scars undergo significant improvement within the first year, with the initial healing phase lasting a few weeks. To promote optimal scar healing, it is important to follow post-operative instructions, including keeping the incision sites clean and dry, avoiding excessive sun exposure, and refraining from picking or scratching the scars. Additionally, applying silicone-based scar gels or sheets, massaging the scars gently, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise can aid in scar healing.
