Prominent and visible scars (wide scars, keloids) can usually be corrected surgically under local anaesthesia on an outpatient basis. Excessive scar tissue is removed and the open wound edges carefully sutured back in two layers to obtain a fine and linear scar. If possible, the scar is placed in a skin fold.
Keloids and hypertrophic scars usually require postoperative laser treatment. With horizontal sutures in the face, the stiches are removed already after 5 to 6 days to avoid the development of thread-stitch canal scars.
