Permanent Scarring

Permanent scarring

INFORMATION AND WHAT TO DO

Slip and falls often occur due to wet floors, spilled liquids, inadequate or missing entryway mats, and many other hidden hazards you don’t notice until it is too late. Trip and falls happen when unexpected objects or conditions impede your intended direction of travel. People often trip over large cracks in the sidewalk, potholes in crosswalks, unmarked and unexpected steps, and a host of many dangerous conditions that can cause a bad fall. Falls can happen when stairs break or crumble, or when a handrail or other safety device fails and causes a fall rather than preventing one.

People who suffer injuries such as facial injuries may often experience severe pain and sometimes it may require a costly medical treatment, including procedures performed by skilled plastic surgeons. Even after treatment, people who suffer injuries may be left with scars that affect them for the rest of their lives. Victims of car accidents who suffer scars may be entitled to compensation for their loss.

Common Causes Of Scarring From Car Accidents

  • Flying objects like broken glass and loose items​
  • Fires and explosions which can result in the skin being badly burned​
  • Air bag deployment which can injure the face on contact​
  • Contact with the dashboard or steering wheel of the car​

Quick Facts

  • Preventing infection can help prevent unnecessary inflammation which can increase the size of wounds resulting in larger, unsightly scars
  • Scarring is an integral part of the healing process. Assuming the wound does not become infected, physicians plan excisions to minimize the cosmetic defects produced by scars

How It Can Affect Your Life

Your quality of life can be reduced and can cause chronic emotional and physical pain. Permanent scars can cause you to lose self esteem and affect your social life as well. Treatments for scars are expensive and can cause you more financial problems.

Recovery

Since scars are permanent, the only way to get rid of them is through surgical scar revision. This may take 1 to 2 weeks. Healing will continue for several weeks and as the new scar heals it will slowly refine and fade.
