Suffering an injury is a painful and traumatic experience – but the initial accident is only the beginning. Once you have been treated for your injury, wound care management is an important part of recovery.
Wounds heal differently, depending on the nature of the injury. If aftercare is not consistent and effective, a wound can lead to several complications including infection or prominent scarring. These secondary issues are avoidable with proper wound care management.
Wound Care & Cosmetic Surgery
A qualified and experienced plastic surgeon is ideally placed to handle wound care management. Primary treatment can go a long way toward ensuring that injuries heal with minimal scarring. However, complications can result in an ugly wound that leaves permanent and visible damage.
When you trust your wound care management to a cosmetic specialist, both aesthetics and function are a focus. Depending on the location of a wound, patients may lose range of movement, or experience pain and discomfort. A wound that heals cleanly and without complications is less likely to cause these issues.
Scar Revision Consultation
If you have scarring from an injury or surgery, there are still options available for improving the appearance of the wound. Scar revision involves using a combination of treatments that are designed to reduce the visibility of scarring.
There are several factors that can impact the appearance of scarring. Age, the nature of the wound and ethnicity are just some of the major influences on healing outcomes. If you are concerned about wound healing management, Los Angeles Plastic Surgery can provide excellent treatment.
