Scar & body disfigurement

Yearly, some 100 million patients acquire scars from elective procedures or surgeries needed to treat their original trauma. Globally, it is estimated that there are 11 million keloid scars and four million burn scars, and 70% of these occur in children. The unreported cases or occurrences will only add to these figures.

Abnormal scarring may cause the affected person to face challenges not only in the form of physical and aesthetic but also socially and psychologically. Emotional trauma is a baggage that can be detrimental to the distressed. This is particularly true for survivors of traumas like fires, accidents and the like.

Most victims of such traumas tend to withdraw into a shell, for not everyone has the strength or support to help them regain lost confidence. The scars for them are like permanent reminders and often lead to flashbacks. Overcoming the initial trauma - shock is just the first step in the long road to recovery for many individuals. 

Dr Ivan Puah is well aware of the negative impact a scar can have on a person. At Amaris B. Clinic, he can help affected individuals lessen this impact and move on confidently in their lives.
