Avatar f tn Hello, Apart from surgical removal of the scar tissue, a laser treatment can be used to vaporize the scarring. This can be tried before surgical removal of the scar tissue.

Avatar m tn In order to correct it I've had a series of surgeries (buckle, gas bubble, silicone oil, laser, etc.). I developed a cataract and some scar tissue due to the multiple surgeries. The scar tissue that was on the retina has some how detached and is now floating around in my eye. My surgeon has suggested that we remove the cataract and suction out the scar tissue at the same time. Will this cause the retina to detach again? WIll the scar tissue floating around cause an issue?
Avatar f tn The removal of the tube could have formed some scar tissue after. Scar tissue causes pain yes but it is different then Endometriosis. Endometriosis is lesions and can cause Dense adhesions to form as well. Who did your surgery a regular Gyno? Do you know if they looked in the cul de sac? usually that is where it is missed. What symptoms were you having?
Avatar f tn Since she had so many surgeries especially on the interior muscle of her left eye it has left a build up of scar tissue. This scar tissue gets very irritated when she wear any type of makeup near her eye. With her being a teenager I do not expect it to lessen with the more makeup she uses. The surgeries were done by wonderful doctors at CHOP and the final one by Dr. Parks at the Childrens Hospital in DC.
Avatar n tn I think you made a wise choice to have laser removal of your beard hair, since that technique is perhaps the only way to eliminate your shaving problems. Some patients, regardless of skin type, do take quite a number of sessions to achieve clearing. I can't explain the little whiteheads. Your suggestion--the heat of the laser--sounds as reasonable as any. In any case, that is temporary. As to the bump induced by picking, that too is independent of skin coloring.
Avatar n tn The various treatment options for such scars are chemical peel, dermabrasion, laser or resurfacing of scars, soft-tissue augmentation, intralesional steroid injection (keloids) and excisional surgery in selected cases. Please discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn Hi, Infections and color changes in the skin are some of the most frequent outcomes of surgical methods for scar tissue removal. Common methods to make it less visible include dermabrasion, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing. Dermabrasion, and chemical peels are for removing the top layers of ski and replacing it with fresh, new skin which lies below, so they may not be effective to remove scars at a particular site.
Avatar f tn My derm advised me to seek laser hair removal, but now I am worried that laser hair removal will just make matters worse, which I just cannot handle. He said that laser hair removal is superior to electrolysis, but stories like this tell otherwise. I read that IPL damages darker skin tones because it does not do a good job in differentiating melanin in hair follicles and melanin in skin, so it damages the surrounding skin. Did all of you ladies have IPL performed on your skin?
Avatar m tn Are there any scar creams I should use to prevent to scar tissue on my penis? I really really dont want a scar on it, If i end up with one im gonna punch my doctor int he face for screwing up, honestly.
Avatar f tn He's been to doctors and had laser treatment to reduce the scar tissue but nothing seems to work. Do you think laser hair removal would help? It is extremely painful and embarassing for him & I would like to help find a solution for him. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn I am not familiar with Rejuvi tattoo removal. The circumferential scar band that you describe could be treated in a number of ways, depending on the age of scar. These techniques run from the application of silicone gel sheeting to steroid injections. Surgically the tightness and indentation could be partially relieved by scar revision with Z-plasties. These alternatives should be discussed with your surgeon.
Avatar m tn In 2010 the cataract from my left eye was removed and soon after my surgery I started to see blurry so went back to my ophthalmologist and he daid that there is a scar tissue and can be removed by Yag laser, Even after performing Yag laser for three times it was unable to remove the scar tissue. I still suffer with blurr vision . I changed my doctor and he suggested that he will perdorm surgery to remove it.
2081455 tn?1332179587 I have also caught bronchitis and this is also making me feel worse. Has anyone experienced this? Could it be scar tissue causing the pain? I am forced to see a Urologist at a county hospital because I don't have insurance. I made an appointment over a month ago and I went to the appointment. I waited 4 hours and still didn't see a doctor. I had to leave due to picking up my kids. So, I didn't get to see the Urologist. Should I just wait this out? Should I go to the Emergency room?
Avatar f tn I used a wrecking bomb cream for a short time, and than decided to go to laser. The MD who was doing the laser removal told me that tattoo removal creams usually leave very bad scarring. Upon my first visit she was surprised that mine did not look like it had any scarring. While I was healing from the first visit I noticed that there is a lot of scarring under the ink.
Avatar f tn Sometimes surgery may be required to improve the scar. In this case, the surgeon will remove excess scar tissue, and reposition the incision so that it heals in a less visible pattern. This scar removal surgery is usually done under local or general anesthesia in the doctor's office. Vit E creams are supposed to lighten scars, so you could apply them directly on the scar,but it may take e long time for results to show, if at all.
1116823 tn?1303076444 It was a common wart that you get on your hands and legs.. But this procedure was more of a scar removal procedure - the scar was left over from a previous biopsy. If I wound the skin (make a small incision with a knife or blade) and reattach, then put a bandied on would the reconnect?
587306 tn?1218529734 Advantages of having your spinal surgeries done at the Laser Spine Institute include no general anesthesia, no hospitalization, minimally invasive surgery, minimal scar tissue formation, and the availability of outpatient procedures. I am very interested in persueing this LSI treatment. Im not sure if I can have this procedure and I understand that some people are not able to. I would like to see if im a canidate for this LSI or not. Im not sure of a lazer Institue near me.
Avatar n tn Scars, especially old scars, may be treated with PhotoDerm, a non-invasive, laser-like device that emits an intense flash of light that works directly on the scar by reducing the blood vessels present in the scar tissue. Let us know if you may have any other questions.
Avatar n tn how often can scar tissue be removed after detached retina surgery and also i have had cataract removed i aso have laser done after the cataract my said that he could not remove the scar tissue right now but my vision is very blurring and can not see very well when driving at night and i want to know how often scar tissue can be removed after that types of surgery i just mentioned above thank you
Avatar m tn True scars don't change that quickly. Perhaps he/she is using "scar" when a better term would be opacity. In any case laser scar removal is done only after the eye is quiet and infection/inflammation free and only works if the scar is on the superficial layers (it will not treat very deep scars).
Avatar f tn I am undergoing surgery for the removal of axillary breast tissue under my right arm. The surgery is scheduled for 20 Aug 07. I was briefed throughly that the casuses could be hereditary, due to lactating, etc. I noticed mine shortly after nursing my youngest child (23 months) and it has been bothersome ever since. I have gone to the doctor so many times and they always tell me maybe it is my lympnodes or cancer.. I had a breast ultrasound done and there is no trace of cancer.
Avatar m tn Hello, This scar could be because of the granulation tissue formed after removal of mole. Sometimes it may become dark as original mole or even darker than that. What happens is that melanocytes left behind in the wound regrow in an abnormal pattern. This is accompanied by scarring, inflammation, and blood vessel changes. For its removal Several methods are available nowadays for the removal of moles, like cryosurgery, excisional biopsy, electro cautery, cold freezing to name a few.
Avatar m tn The best thing you can do right now is see an Endometriosis specialist that also specializes in excision surgery not laser. It is very very important. Where do you live, I can see if I can steer you in the right direction. You can remove Endo without removing your ovaries if the doctor is skilled. Endo will always grow back so that is why excision is the best as it gives women 80% relief which is a lot higher than when its done with laser.
Avatar m tn Hi, A scar is an overgrowth of fibrous tissue and blood vessels that form as a result of injury, a cut or a burn. Sometimes surgery may be required to improve the scar. In this case, the surgeon will remove excess scar tissue, and reposition the incision so that it heals in a less visible pattern. This scar removal surgery is usually done under local or general anesthesia in the doctor's office.
Avatar n tn if it was a regular scar than he would gladly used the laser, but because of the mole which was burned and replaced with scar tissue, he could not do it.
