This is Melody’s experience as she has scar revision surgery
performed by Beverly Hills doctor Paul Nassif.
Scar tissue forms
as skin heals after an injury (such as an accident) or surgery. The
amount of scarring may be determined by the wound size, depth, and
location; the persons age; heredity; and skin characteristics
including color (pigmentation).
Depending on the extent of the
surgery, scar revision can be done while you are awake (local
anesthesia), sleeping (sedated), or deep asleep and pain-free
When to have scar revision done is not
always clear. Scars shrink and become less noticeable as they age.
You may be able to wait for surgical revision until the scar
lightens in color, which can be several months or even a year after
the wound has healed. For some scars, however, it is best to have
revision surgery 60-90 days after the scar matures.
Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a method of administering pure oxygen at
greater than atmospheric pressure to a patient in order to improve
or correct conditions. By providing pure oxygen in a pressurized
chamber we are able to deliver 10-15 times more oxygen then if
delivered at sea level or at normal atmospheric levels. Some of the
effects this has are to promote the growth of new blood vessels,
decrease swelling and inflammation, deactivate toxins, increase the
body’s ability to fight infections, clear out toxins and metabolic
waste products, and improve the rate of healing. HBOT should be used
to complement conventional therapies and treatments.
