Abnormal Scaring After Buttock Implant

18th Oct 2018

Any procedure that involves incisions leads to the development of scars, and butt implant surgery is no exception. Your body reacts against the incisions made to place the implants in your buttocks by forming scars to heal them. The scar is basically created by the myofibroblasts and collagen fibers generated by the body as a natural reaction against the surgical wound.
In most cases, the scar is normal and looks flat. It gradually fades and becomes less noticeable over time. Typically, it takes years for butt implant scars to become unnoticeable. However, the scar does not completely disappear. It will stay with you for a lifetime.
There are some patients who have a genetic predisposition to develop more disruptive, abnormal, or unsightly scars. For example, when the body reacts by creating too much collagen to heal the incision, a raised or large scar may be formed.
Furthermore, carelessness on the part of the patient during recovery can also trigger the development of abnormal scars after buttock implant surgery. Other factors that may trigger the creation of abnormal scars include the surgical technique used, your overall health condition, and the surgeon’s skills and experience.
Abnormal scars are bad scars. They have the tendency to unfold any time after butt implant surgery. There are two types of unsightly, abnormal, and undesirable scars: hypertrophic scars and keloid scars. While both of these scars are unwelcoming, keloids are more raised, evident, and intense because they appear in the shape of a cauliflower. They are rare but difficult to treat.
Hypertrophic scars are formed as a result of keeping the incision under stress or pressure. For example, when the incision is sutured and closed under high tension or when the patients make a lot of movements during recovery, it may lead to the development of hypertrophic scars.
In order to avoid the development of abnormal scars after buttock implant surgery, be sure to share your complete health and medication history with the surgeon before the procedure. Also, choose your surgeon carefully, avoid physically strenuous activities, and follow the surgeon’s instructions during the recovery period. Doing so will help prevent abnormal scarring after the procedure.
