After surgery my child will have a scar?
All surgical procedures leave scars, some more noticeable than others. The goal is to make that scar as small and imperceptible as possible.
The end result of a scar depends on several factors. One of these is the response that each individual has to a wound. Keloid scars are common in patients with a family history of poor quality scarring. With any wound, preventive management of the scar must be carried out early so that this scar is marked as little as possible. Ask your child's surgeon what is the best management option depending on the case.
