A scar is a patch or line of tissue that remains after a wound has healed. When a wound occurs and there is a break in some of the tissue in the body, the body heals it by producing more of a protein called collagen. Scars gradually become smoother and will fade over time but can cause distress if unsightly or very visible.
Our Consultant Plastic Surgeon can advise you and recommend treatments.
