Scarring And Disfigurement

Impact of Scarring and Disfigurement

Injuries that lead to scarring or disfigurement can be especially difficult for women. Society often judges women more harshly on their looks than men, so women may be impacted more deeply by their scars. Low self-esteem, feeling embarrassed about going out in public, and depression are common side effects of scarring.

The location of the scarring can also increase the impact it has on a person’s life. A minor burn scar from a seat belt on the chest is much easier to hide than a large laceration on the face or an amputation. Scars can also sometimes be in a location that makes it difficult to bend or move as easily as you did before your injury.
