How long is the healing process?
Surgical wound infection
Surgical wounds and scars
Scarring can occur at the end of the healing process of injuries that affect the epidermis and underlying dermis because the organism is not able to replace the destroyed, highly specialised tissue in the same way. Instead, the tissue is repaired by large amounts of newly produced collagen. To help reduce scarring, follow these simple tips:
Help to prevent infections by keeping the wound clean.
Protect the wound from external influences by covering it with a plaster or dressing.
Follow the principles of moist wound healing as this is known to reduce the risk of scarring.
Avoid solarium/sun, as it may change the structure and color of fresh scars.
Do not expose your wound to extreme temperatures such as sauna sessions, as that might disturb the healing process.
Wear loose-fitting clothes to prevent irritation and further injuring.
Avoid tension from exercising or other moving activities.
Your doctor will advise you on how to treat your surgical wound depending on your situation. Learn more here about scar formation, how to prevent new scars from forming or how to treat existing ones.
