Improving the quality of the scar

November 1, 2019

Healing skin is very sensitive to sunlight and should be protected from the sun with high factor sun protection once the stitches have been removed.

Your surgeon may ask you to massage the area with a clean finger to improve the healing process.

If you are unhappy with the quality of your scar once the area has fully healed, then please ask your GP to re-refer you for a follow up appointment.
