RECOVERY AFTER SURGERY

You will be giving specific instructions that may include how to care for the surgical site, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the risk of infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health, and when to follow up with your plastic surgeon. The initial healing phase of a surgical scar revision may include one to two localized swelling, discoloration or discomfort. As the new scar heals for several weeks, it will slowly refine and fade. With dermabrasion, chemical peel or laser resurfacing, you will experience similar conditions at the treated area, in addition to overall sensitivity.
Follow all postoperative instructions carefully, including cleansing and at-home treatment regimens, and avoid sun exposure. Your compliance with postoperative instructions will influence the outcome of your surgery. It’s important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion, or motion during the time of healing. 
……..Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon questions. It’s very important to understand all aspects of your scar revision procedure. It's natural to feel some anxiety, whether it’s excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of preoperative stress. Don’t be shy about discussing these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
RESULTS 
When your procedure is finished, bandages or dressings may be applied to keep the surgical site clean. The final results of your scar revision surgery will be long-lasting, however it may take several months for your final results to become apparent and in some cases it may take a year for the new scar to fully heal and fade.  Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee, in some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.
