Say Goodbye to Scars: Effective Treatment Options for Scar Reduction

Scars can have a significant impact on a person’s self-confidence and self-esteem, especially if they are located in visible areas such as the face, arms, or legs. Fortunately, there are several scar treatment options available that can help reduce the appearance of scars and improve their overall texture.

One popular scar treatment option is scar revision surgery in Malad West. Scar revision surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that involves removing the scar tissue and repositioning the skin to create a smoother, more natural appearance. This type of surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia, and patients can usually return home the same day.

Another scar treatment option is laser scar removal. This procedure involves using a laser to target the scar tissue and break it down, allowing new, healthy tissue to grow in its place. Laser scar removal is a relatively quick procedure and can be performed on an outpatient basis.

Another scar treatment option is dermabrasion, which involves using a special tool to remove the top layer of skin and stimulate the growth of new skin cells. This procedure can be used to treat a variety of scars, including those caused by acne or injury.

In addition to these scar treatment options, there are also several non-invasive treatments that can help reduce the appearance of scars. These include topical creams and gels, silicone sheets or gels, and massage therapy.

If you are considering scar treatment, it is important to speak with a plastic surgeon in Malad West to determine the best course of action for your individual needs. They can help you understand the benefits and risks of each treatment option and recommend the best course of action to help you achieve your desired results.

In conclusion, scars can be a significant source of discomfort and embarrassment for many people. Fortunately, there are several effective scar treatment options available, including scar revision surgery, laser scar removal, and dermabrasion. With the help of a plastic surgeon in Goregaon West, you can find the right treatment option for your individual needs and achieve smoother, more natural-looking skin.

Advantage of Cosmetic Surgery in Winter

Although we can say that any time of the year is good to make that change that we so desire, there are times of the year that, due to the characteristics of the season, provide the ideal circumstances to perform some plastic and aesthetic surgery treatments.

Although it seems that summer is still a long way off, the festive season and the winter cold are ideal to take advantage of and plan well in advance for those surgical procedures that require a prolonged postoperative period to show off our new figure next summer.

Making the decision to undergo plastic and aesthetic surgery is something that we must make with time and conscientiously. Many experts strongly recommend choosing a good plastic surgeon in Mumbai with the appropriate qualifications so that our intervention is a success.

Consult with more than one professional so that you find one with whom you feel more comfortable, generate more confidence and answer all the questions and doubts you may have. Likewise, aesthetic treatments require prior planning so that our body is ready to face the intervention in the best possible conditions and achieve the most optimal results.

What are the benefits of plastic and cosmetic surgery in winter?

  • It gives us the motivation to start the year with renewed goals and a new beginning.
  • You may have more free time during the holiday season compared to any other time of year.
  • Unlike summer clothing that exposes the skin, winter clothing makes it easier to hide post-surgery bandages, girdles, scars, and temporary swelling during recovery. In this way, you can carry out your treatment more discreetly if you wish, and others will not have to know that you have had surgery. 
  • It is easier to avoid direct sun exposure during a winter recovery. Something essential to avoid swelling and pigmentation of our postoperative scars so that they evolve correctly and become as inconspicuous as possible. Although the incidence of sunlight is lower in winter, we must use clothing and adequate sun protection if the scars are going to be exposed to sunlight, as occurs with surgical and aesthetic facial treatments.
  • You will be ready to show off your new look in spring/summer! The definitive results of an aesthetic surgical intervention are usually seen after 6 months, with which autumn/winter is an ideal time to carry out those surgical treatments shown in our figure.
  • The days are shorter and the low temperatures of winter weather mean that we spend more time at home, allowing us to carry out the postoperative period more calmly, resting and gradually recovering.

Scar Correction – Things To Know

It is possible to correct scars with plastic surgery and the main objective of this type of procedure is to repair changes in the healing of a wound in any part of the body, whether the reason for the mark is a cut, burn or even previous surgeries. Scar revision in Mumbai seeks to improve the condition or appearance of the scar so that it is more even with your skin tone and surrounding texture.

Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed, are an unavoidable result of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing can contribute to the appearance of unfavourable marks on the skin. Even a wound that heals well can result in a poor appearance.

Although the procedure provides a more pleasant aesthetic result or improves a scar that has had poor healing, such a mark cannot be completely erased. The type of scar you have will determine the appropriate techniques your plastic surgeon in Mumbai will use to smooth the area.

Scar Correction Techniques

There are several techniques to surgically correct a scar, and what will determine which of these procedures will be used is the type, size, location and severity of the scar. It is the surgeon who performs the evaluation and it is he who also determines the best technique to be used, taking into account the patient’s healing history. See below for scar correction techniques.

  • Z-plasty: most common technique for scar correction.
  • Half z-plasty: chosen when the skin on one side is more elastic and on the other, firmer.
  • Z-plasty in four flaps (Limberg flap): works best for cases of release of severe scar contractures that “tie” normal movement. It is also suitable for people who have suffered severe burns.
  • Planimetric Z-plasty: as the name implies, it is performed in flat regions and has the help of skin grafts.
  • S-plasty: best technique for oval-shaped scars.
  • W-plasty: Works well to correct scars that are linear but irregular.
  • Broken Geometric Lines: Transforms a long linear scar into a randomly shaped irregular one so that it is less noticeable.
  • VY and VY type advancement: best technique for small scars.
  • Subcision and filling: ideal for retracted and deep marks, which require filling with fat or hyaluronic acid.
  • Dermabrasion: older technique, which can be done manually or with the use of machines.

Usually, a single surgery is able to promote satisfactory results, but there are more complicated cases in which a combination of treatments is recommended.

Scar Correction Indications

Not every scar must be corrected through surgical intervention. There are other treatments, less invasive, that can be indicated by the doctor and that are enough to soften the appearance of the mark. Here are the types of scars that usually require surgical correction:

  • Keloid: hardened scar, which grows larger than normal due to excess collagen production. It may itch and turn red
  • Hypertrophic: thick scar, also generated by excessive collagen production. May be darker or lighter than the surrounding skin
  • Retracted or contracture: causes approximation of the surrounding skin, common in abdominoplasty, cesarean sections and burns. It makes it difficult to move the skin and nearby joints
  • Atrophic: scar that goes deeper than the surrounding skin, common in wounds and acne marks
  • Dyschromic: changes the colour of the skin, being lighter or darker than the skin around it

It is important to say that the surgical correction of a scar can improve the appearance and even make the skin even, but it does not guarantee the complete disappearance of the mark. Results vary greatly depending on the patient’s skin.


Like any plastic surgery, scar correction also has its risks. See the main ones:

  • Infection
  • Swelling
  • Bruises
  • Risks related to anesthesia
  • bad healing

It is important to make it clear that scar correction is a surgery that aims to improve the aesthetics of a mark you have, but it is impossible to guarantee that the healing of the procedure will be perfect. A lot depends on the quality of the skin, the body’s healing process and also on aligning your expectations with reality. Always talk to your plastic surgeon in Malad so he can clear all your doubts.

Preoperative scar correction

Because it is a relatively simple procedure, depending on how the surgery and anesthesia will be, not even fasting will be necessary. Even so, some precautions need to be taken.

  • Clear all your doubts in the evaluation consultation. The more you know, the better.
  • Be honest when answering the surgeon’s questions
  • Take all the tests that the surgeon requests (they are used to assess your general health condition and whether your body is fit to undergo the trauma of surgery)
  • Tell your doctor about all the medications you take. It may be necessary to suspend or change the dose depending on the type of medicine
  • If you experience flu or cold symptoms on the eve of surgery, tell your doctor right away – a delay may be necessary
  • If you are a smoker, you will need to stop the habit at least 30 days before the procedure and you will only be able to resume 30 days later. At least 60 days without smoking


The postoperative period of the scar correction is perhaps the most important part of the treatment. It takes about 1 full year to fully heal. During this time, follow the recommendations of the plastic surgeon in Goregaon and the Realize team so that the healing process is smooth and gives good results.

Attend follow-up appointments and follow up on the evolution of the scar. The more closely you follow the recommendations, the more likely the surgery will be successful.

The initial healing phase may present with localized swelling, discolouration or discomfort and may take 1 to 2 weeks. Healing will continue for several weeks. With dermabrasion, chemical peels, or laser resurfacing, conditions in the treated areas will be the same, in addition to sensitivity in general.

If you experience shortness of breath, chest pain, or an abnormal heartbeat, seek medical attention immediately. If any of these complications occur, you may need hospitalization and additional treatment. At the end of the procedure, bandages or dressings may be applied to the surgical site to keep it clean.

Surgical incisions should not be subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion or movement during the healing period, and it is critical to avoid sun exposure.


The final results of scar revision surgery in Mumbai can take several months and even years to become apparent. The practice of medicine and surgery is not an exact science. Although good results are expected, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure, requiring a new surgery.

cosmetic surgery for eye

The main types of cosmetic surgery for the eye region

Over the years, it is common for our skin to show signs of aging in the eye region or even abnormalities in the eyelids and eye sockets.

These types of problems often happen by heredity, but they are also possible as you live, a factor we know as “natural aging of the body”. At the same time, aging problems in the eye area are possible to be treated with a plastic surgeon in Mumbai.

Today, we tell you the main types of eye surgeries to correct eyelids and eye aesthetics.

Eyelid bags

One of the main problems caused by aging and heredity are palpebral bags – bags formed by fat that are apparent in the upper and/or lower eyelids.

They do not usually bring problems to the patient’s life, except for the aesthetic issue, causing discomfort to social life, so it is possible to correct the problem with blepharoplasty – specific plastic surgery to correct palpebral bags and sagging eyelids.

Eyelids drooping, outwards or inwards

Another problem that usually bothers is drooping eyelids or those that stick out (problem called ectropion, which can cause discomfort and tearing in the eyes due to the lack of protective contact between the eyelid and the eye), or even end up turning inwards. eyes (a condition called entropion, which generates constant pain and irritation due to the contact of the eyelashes with the eyeball).

It is necessary to differentiate between eyelids that have a droopy appearance only due to sagging skin resulting from natural aging from cases in which the patient has difficulty keeping their eyes open due to some functional problem of the eyelids. In these cases, the eyelids are not properly held open, which can interfere with vision. This condition is called eyelid ptosis, which can affect one or both eyes.

In cases where there is only sagging skin, with or without the presence of eyelid bags, conventional blepharoplasty is indicated. It consists of removing excess skin from the eyelids at the same time that the eyelid fat bags are removed, which may not be present, or affect one, two or all of the patient’s eyelids. It should be noted that, in this surgery, ectropion and/or entropion problems are also corrected, if present.

Blepharoplasty in Mumbai is a surgery that can be performed under local anesthesia, local anesthesia with sedation, or general anesthesia. It can be associated with other procedures on the face, such as a facelift, or performed as a single procedure. Scars usually evolve well and become quite discreet.

The postoperative period of blepharoplasty requires relative rest, and eye care. Swelling is usually important in the first week, but it gradually improves after that period. To relieve the discomfort generated by the swelling, the patient is instructed to apply cold compresses on the eyes, and also to use eye drops and/or eye ointments, depending on each case. It is also recommended to protect the eyes from the sun, especially while there are purplish areas on the eyelids, which tend to sag in the first two to three weeks after surgery.

In cases where eyelid ptosis exists, specific surgeries are needed to correct the abnormal drooping of the eyelids. The most common cause of drooping eyelid ptosis is related to problems with the levator palpebrae muscle, which is primarily responsible for maintaining the normal opening of the eyelids. Cases of eyelid ptosis are more frequent in elderly patients, due to the tearing or tearing of the tendon (aponeurosis) of this muscle that connects it to the eyelids, but this problem can occur in patients of any age.

Surgery to correct this type of ptosis consists of tying this tendon back to the muscle if it is torn, or shortening it if it is torn. This surgery can, in many cases, be associated with conventional blepharoplasty, if the patient wants aesthetic correction of the eyelids together with the correction of eyelid ptosis. The care of this corrective surgery is similar to that of blepharoplasty.

It is essential to talk to your plastic surgeon in Malad about the type of eyelid surgery you are interested in or need to do, so that he can correctly diagnose your case and recommend the most appropriate surgery.

right time for breast augmentation

The right time for a breast augmentation

There are many women who want larger or firmer breasts. For many, a possible pregnancy is seen as an obstacle. But does that have to be the case at all? We clarify: When is the best time for a breast augmentation? At what age can breast augmentation be performed? And: is it possible to have a breast augmentation before or after pregnancy without any problems?

Breast augmentation before or after pregnancy?

Pregnancy and childbirth are natural events in a woman’s life. However, pregnancy and the subsequent breastfeeding period usually leave their mark on the body. Sagging, sagging breasts are not uncommon. The abdomen also loses elasticity.

Many women come to us after pregnancy with the desire for firmer breasts. A breast lift, possibly with additional breast augmentation in Mumbai, can help here. Breast augmentation after pregnancy is therefore very common and also possible without any problems. Nevertheless, you should wait a certain amount of time. Dr Vishal will be happy to advise you personally and discreetly in this regard.

Breast augmentation before pregnancy is also possible. However, it is advisable to wait a certain amount of time after the procedure. Because the natural changes in the breasts associated with pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect the result.

Tip : Let Dr. Advise saddlers on a mommy makeover. Various interventions can be combined here in order to achieve the best possible overall result for mothers after childbirth. We help you to feel good in your body again.

When is the right time for a breast augmentation?

In this sense, there is no right time for a breast augmentation. The needs and individual circumstances are far too different. The question “breast augmentation before or after pregnancy?” is justified, but cannot be answered in the same way for every person. In general, however, breast augmentation is possible at any point in the life of an adult woman. In principle, you do not need to worry whether the surgery is the right decision if you have not yet completed your family planning. Nor do you have to worry about missing the time for breast augmentation after childbirth.

At what age can breast augmentation be performed?

In principle, the body should be fully grown before a plastic-aesthetic procedure is carried out. Breast augmentation is possible for women over the age of 18. There are practically no upper limits. This means that breast augmentation can also be carried out safely in women over 70 years of age.

Dr Vishal Patel, Best Plastic Surgeon in Mumbai, will advise you confidentially and responsibly on your options. 

liposuction for back fat

Liposuction for Back Fat: Here’s How It Works

How liposuction can help you get rid of back fat

Liposuction can be used to remove localized fat deposits on the back and flanks. Find out how the procedure is done

Liposuction is the plastic surgery indicated to remove excess fat that is difficult to lose even with the adoption of good habits.

On the back, these fat deposits can be aesthetically uncomfortable and compromise the desired body contour. Find out more below.

What are the indications of lipo?

Liposuction is the procedure of excellence for the removal of localized fat deposits, such as those existing in the abdomen, breeches, flanks, back, buttocks, thighs and arms.

Thus, lipo is more appropriate for patients who are at their ideal weight, who do not have excess sagging in the treated region and who already have a satisfied body definition acquired through good habits.

This aspect is important so that expectations regarding liposuction are realistic, because although the treatment is effective in eliminating extra deposits, it does not make possible a complete body change or weight loss.

Back fat that can accumulate further below the wings or just above the lower back (flanks) is hard to lose even with healthy eating and gym.

Thus, an improving option for removing these deposits and body contour is liposuction, provided the patient is healthy and close to the proper weight.

How is back liposuction performed?

Liposuction on the back is performed in a hospital environment using local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. Small incisions of about 1 cm each are made.

It is common to opt for the use of a tumescent substance (adrenaline + serum) to control bleeding and facilitate the detachment of adipose tissues from adjacent structures, such as viscera and muscles.

The plastic surgeon in Mumbai who is in charge for the liposuction inserts the surgical equipment and makes vigorous back-and-forth movements to detach the structures.

A cannula used for suction of the fat cells is then inserted. It is important to highlight that, according to the guideline of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery (SBCP), the procedure should be limited to the removal of up to 7% of the body weight.

The surgical incisions are then closed and the compression girdle is placed, still in the operating room, which will also be used in the postoperative period.

What is it like before and after liposuction on the back?

Liposuction on the back or flanks requires all the care regularly adopted in the preoperative period of plastic surgery, such as medical exams, evaluation of medication for continuous use and interruption of harmful habits, such as tobacco use.

Postoperative care will help to minimize the chances of complications and speed up recovery.

Among the important practices to be adopted, the following stand out: rest, use of a compression garment, lymphatic drainage sessions, not being exposed to the sun, using only the prescribed medication and light walks inside the house.

Liposuction of the back is a safe and effective procedure for remodeling and body definition, but it must be performed with the adoption of pre and post-operative care. safety and good treatment results.
