Individuals may sustain several varieties of scars, depending on the type and severity of the injury, as well as the patient’s age, overall health and their body’s healing abilities. This scarring can often be alleviated through cosmetic plastic surgery.

Hypertrophic scars are red, raised scars filled with excessive amounts of collagen that may be itchy or slightly painful, although they are considered harmless and do not grow beyond the boundaries of the initial wound.

Keloids are overgrown areas of scar tissue that appear as irregularly-shaped, raised, pink or red areas that may continue to grow over time. While they can occur anywhere on the body, they are most common on the face, neck, ears, chest or shoulders.

Acne scars. One of the most common problematic scars. Once the acne has finally been cleared up it can leave behind scarring. The scarring can range from mild to severe, and it follows four different patterns. Acne scarring can either be classified as icepick, boxcar, rolling or hypertrophic. The severity and pattern of your acne scars will determine the type or types of treatments you should pursue. Treatments to get rid of acne scars include topical, laser, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels.

Contractures are more severe scars that restrict movement as a result of the tissue in the area pulling together during the healing process. This type of scar most commonly occurs after large amounts of tissue loss or in wounds that occur on a joint.

Scars are by definition permanent, but certain aesthetic medical procedures can narrow, fade and otherwise reduce the appearance of severe or unattractive scarring, which is especially helpful in areas of cosmetic importance such as the face and hands.
