Dr. Sameer Jejurikar Explains How To Take Care Of Your Scars After Cosmetic Surgery

Sameer Jejurikar, MD, is a plastic surgeon who applies his skills at the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute in downtown Dallas, Texas. Over the past 21 years, he has helped thousands of people who want to have elective surgery performed on them. He can handle elective surgery involving the eyes, nose, overall face, breasts, and body. Plastic surgery is just as much of an art form as it is a science and he has mastered both of these aspects.

He is said to have a warm approach to his patients and is sensitive to their needs. This approach led to him being honored in 2013 with the 2012 Compassionate Doctor Certification. This is a certification managed by Patients’ Choice. They look at 100 million annual reviews left on their website as well as UcompcareHealthCare and Vitals in order to determine the select few doctors that receive this certification each year.

Dr. Sameer Jejurikar says that having cosmetic surgery, unfortunately, results in scars but there are ways to mitigate their appearance. He says if you’re going to have to have these scars than they should be made cosmetically beautiful. Making a precise closure of any surgical openings is critical, of course, but what patient’s do after the surgery is also very important.

He says the first rule of scars is to protect them from the UV rays of the sun. Dr. Sameer Jejurikar says this can cause permanent discoloration and damage of any scar tissue. He says that clothing itself isn’t enough. He tells his patients to stay indoors if they can and if not they need to apply either a bandage or silicon strip over the scar. He tells them they can also use a sunscreen but it needs to be at a minimum SPF 30.
