It is possible to get rid of self harm scars on the arm by “dermabrasion and thin skin grafting” procedure. After i.v. sedation and local infiltration anesthesia, the scarred area is mechanically dermabraded with a special device. Then, the widened scars are surgically revised and turned to a linear scar using absorbable sutures. Finally, the dermabraded surface is covered with a “thin skin graft” harvested from lateral thigh region. The new skin patch integrates to new area and hides the cutting scars permanently. The operation takes 1-3 hours. You have to stay one night at the hospital and do bed rest for 2 weeks until skin graft donor area spontaneously heals.
