What carpal tunnel release scars can I expect?
Scarring after surgery is a common question asked by Perth patients.
As a Specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr. Colbert always aims to minimise scarring by using precise plastic surgery techniques, and closely monitoring your wounds after the operation.
Carpal tunnel release surgery scars will often take several months to settle down – they are sometimes initially lumpy, bumpy, red, then after several months they settle to become flat, thin, and pale. They are often very sensitive to begin with, but become less sensitive with time.
