Dr. Kris Reddy FACS: Expert of Scar Revision in West Palm Beach
Whether caused by injury, surgery, or burn, scars can be disfiguring. Scars stand out against the rest of the skin because scar tissue is made of collagen cells rather than ordinary skin cells. As a result, scars are usually a different color, and do not have sweat glands or hair follicles. The severity of a scar depends on many factors, including the size and depth of the wound, the blood supply to the area, and the thickness and color of the skin. Some people – especially those with deeper skin tones – have a tendency to produce prominent, raised scars called keloids.
Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, board certified plastic surgeon and West Palm Beach scar revision expert, has the rare double honor of being a Fellow of American and International College of Surgeons, the only board certified plastic surgeon in Palm Beach County, Florida to hold both of these prestigious honors. Dr. Reddy is also a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
The Basics – Scar Repair in West Palm Beach
The success of scar revision often depends on the type of scar. Some of the different types of scars include:
Atrophic scars, which are thin or flat.
Hypertrophic scars, which are thick, red, raised and occur within the edges of the wound.
Keloid scars which look like hypertrophic scars, but are firm and extend beyond the edges of the wound. Keloids can be swollen and often itch or hurt.
Contracture scars which occur when large areas of skin are lost. The edges of the remaining skin pull tightly together, often restricting adjacent tendons or muscles.
There are a number of methods to improve the scar depending on the nature of the scar including laser (erbium laser resurfacing or profractional), to non laser procedures (such as surgical revision or excision) to kenalog injections.
