Understanding Tummy Tuck Scars

Scars from tummy tucks and other plastic surgeries can vary significantly in their appearance and impact. At HPI Scar Revision, we recognize the emotional and physical effects these scars can have and offer specialized treatments to address them. Here are the common types of abdominalscars we treat:

Tummy Tuck Scars

These scars typically extend horizontally across the lower abdomen and can vary in length and thickness depending on the extent of the surgery. They can sometimes heal unevenly, resulting in raised or sunken areas that might cause discomfort or self-consciousness.

Hypertrophic and Keloid Scars

These are raised, thickened scars that develop when the body produces excess collagen during the healing process. While hypertrophic scars stay within the original wound’s boundaries, keloid scars can grow beyond them, creating larger, more pronounced raised areas.

Atrophic Scars

These are sunken scars caused by tissue loss, which can sometimes occur in the surgical area after complications in the healing process.

Our Comprehensive Non-Surgical Treatment Options

At HPI Scar Revision, we offer a variety of advanced, non-invasive treatments tailored to your specific scar type. Our expert clinicians have extensive experience in scar removal and will create a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs. Our treatment options include:

  1. Chemical Peels: A chemical solution is applied to your skin to exfoliate the upper layers. Chemical peels are ideal for mild scars, usually on the face & neck.
  2. Dermaplaning: A special razor is used to shave away the upper layers of your skin, improving the appearance of acne scars.
  3. Microneedling: A device creates microscopic punctures in your skin, encouraging collagen production and remodeling to improve scar appearance.
  4. Exosome Therapy: During the microneedling process, smart growth factors rejuvenate the skin by harnessing regenerative properties. This natural treatment accelerates the healing process and maximizes results, promoting healthier, revitalized skin.
  5. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): Using your body’s own blood platelets, PRP injections can enhance the healing process naturally to improve the appearance of scars.
