Although incisions may heal well overtime, this may take several years as the scars remodel over a long period of time. This can lead to unwanted various emotional, social, and even psychological effects in your daily life.
Scarless Thyroid Surgery Preserves Confidentiality Scarless thyroid surgery will provide the care you need without compromising your confidentiality or privacy related to your surgery or the diagnosis whether the surgery was performed due to a symptomatic thyroid nodule, functional disease of the thyroid gland, or thyroid cancer.
