ABDOMINAL SCAR REVISION

“I HATE MY UGLY SCAR!”

BY: DR. LEONID SORKIN

Many of my patients hate their scars.  As a surgeon, I perform C-sections, Hysterectomies, Skin Lesion Resections (Vulvectomies), Labiaplasties, Vaginoplasties and more.  What do all these surgeries have in common?  THEY RESULT IN VISIBLE SCARS.

It’s important to make these scars as aesthetically pleasing as possible.  Careful surgical technique and sutures selection are important but postoperative scar care is equally important.

The first step is to bleach the scar.  I recommend Rebrightalize Enhancement Therapy from Topix.  It contains an patented mixture of Kojic Acid, Artbutin and Bearberry that brightens skin and promotes even tone.  It also contains Vitamin C which is integral to strengthening Collagen.  The treatment is safe for use in pregnancy and with breastfeeding.  In addition, Hydroquinone can be added to enhance the bleaching effect.  However, it is not safe in pregnancy nor with breastfeeding.  Also, people with dark skin should be careful when using Hydroquinone as it may bleach the skin lighter than their natural skin color.

The next step is to tighten the scar tissue.  Here is where Replenix Retinol Smoothing Body Lotion comes in.  This lotion contains a special blend that tightens scars.  The Leontopodium Alpinum lifts and tightens the scar.  Hyaluronic Acid assists in hydrating the scar tissue and giving it a plump look.  The Green Tea Polyphenol calms and sooths the scar.  The result…  THIN, SMOOTH, SKIN TONE, BARELY NOTICIBLE SCAR.

Many of my patients notice marked camouflaging of their scars with-in 1 month of the treatment.
