Mole After Surgery But Not Gone?
I want to ask, 3 years ago I was operated on because there was a mole near the eye area, after the operation the doctor said he could not completely remove the mole because it was very close to the eye, the doctor also suggested a second operation, currently there are 2 scars You can’t get rid of the first, blackened stitch marks, the second, the remains of a mole that hasn’t been operated on, can something like that be lost 100%? If I could, what action would I take
Good afternoon Halohaa .. Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Invasive procedures such as surgery carry the risk of causing scars after the procedure and if the wound is located on the face area it can interfere with appearance. These suture scars can arise due to damage to skin tissue and eventually to form scar tissue. The wound healing process itself can vary depending on the location of the wound, the degree of severity of the wound (width and depth of the wound), the wound care process, and nutritional intake during the wound healing process.
There are many ways to disguise a scar, but to get rid of it completely the results can also vary and take a lot of time. There are natural ways and medical techniques that can help reduce scars, including:
- consume lots of foods rich in vitamin E, because according to some research this vitamin E can help speed up the healing process and prevent the appearance of scar tissue on the skin.
- applying aloe vera and honey to help disguise scars
- Dermabrasion technique, which is a technique to scrape and flatten the surface of a scar that is shaped like a clot so that the final result can be even and smoother.
- steroid injections, generally used for keloid scars. however, it requires several injections and requires a long period of time for maximum results.
- laser resurfacing, has a technique similar to that of dermabrasion with a short recovery time and smoother results.
- Silicone compression dressing, generally used on skin graft scars or large burns.
If you want to try the techniques above to help disguise these surgical scars, it's a good idea to consult this with a dermatologist first to minimize the risks that can occur and to find out what treatments and therapies are more suitable for your problem. The dermatologist will then be able to carry out the appropriate examinations before determining the next steps for treatment.
I hope this information is helpful. thank you
