The most common questions our KidKutsMD™ pediatric plastic surgeons get from parents and pediatricians are, “…am I overreacting?” and “what can be done about this scar that my child has after an injury?”
Parents and pediatricians care about their kids’ injuries and want the best experience and best results; even if the injury was not repaired by one of our plastic surgeons, there are a number of things we can do to optimize the scar and, if need be, revise or improve the texture, color, width, and orientation of a scar that is unfavorable or unsightly. Options include:
- Topical compound pharmaceuticals during the first two to eight months tailored to the child’s skin type.
- Broadband Light treatments.
- Laser treatments.
- Surgical scar excision and precise closure.
- Surgical Z-plasty or running W-plasty
Consultation with our board-certified pediatric specialist will allow for the best clinical assessment and recommendations.
