Outer Forearm Scars Before & After Photos
Outer forearm is one of the most common sites of self-inflicted scars. This area is relatively hairy area especially in men. The self-harm scars over the outer forearm are more obvious since there is no hair on the self-harm scars. Following dermabrasion of the scarred area as a whole unit, I perform scar revision to remove the widened and hairless scars first and then I apply the “thin skin graft” over the raw surface. There may be needed “unroofing” procedure with a sterile needle to the hairs trapped under the skin graft in the postoperative period. On the other hand, these hairs help to hide the skin graft at the end of healing period and the final aesthetic result looks more natural.
