Reconstruction and correction of scars

Scar revision is performed to correct and reconstruct a scar in order to improve its condition and movement.

What does reconstruction and correction of scars involve?

The scar is corrected or lengthened and healthy tissue in the form of adjacent local flaps of skin and underlying tissue or skin grafts, is used to fill the space produced by release of the scar. 

What are the benefits of reconstruction and correction of scars?

Relief of tightness, increased movement, improved stability, robustness of tissue and often an additional benefit of improved cosmesis.  This type of procedure is particularly important around the eyes, the mouth and in the hands and limbs in general, where scarring can restrict movement and impair vision, mouth function and limb function respectively.
