Appearance plays a very important role in modern society

Scarring can be unsightly especially if it is the result of an injury or poor wound healing after a surgery. Visible scars can cause embarrassment or self-consciousness. They may be depressed, raised, discoloured, jagged or noticeable because of their obvious placement. Some scars can even distort normal features of the skin or face and lower the self-confidence of a person. Persons with badly scarred faces often find it difficult to make public appearance in fear of people staring at them.
