Abstract

Minimization of scars begins during surgery planning and is affected by cytokines, tissue tension, inflammation, and other processes during maturation. Scar management has been well studied, but there is no ideal therapy. Much research on scar prevention and management has not been in the form of randomized, controlled clinical trials with long-term follow-up-leading to uncertainty in clinical decision-making. Several commonly used therapies, plus newer techniques, are explored in this article.
