Body Scars are the physical remnants of violence or abuse. Although they can occur in other parts of your body, most commonly they happen in the head. Body Scars can be caused by a number of different things, but there is one thing in common with all body trauma: trauma causes scars. Even if the injury doesn’t leave any visible wounds on the skin, the scars can still happen.
There are many different ways that trauma to the body can cause the skin to bleed, develop scars, or become disfigured. Some of the more common causes of internal bleeding and scarring include fistulas, internal hematomas, and herniated discs. Fistulas are like tunnels through the body’s tissue; they can grow larger and bigger over time, causing untold amounts of pain and suffering for the individual who has them. If a small amount of blood gets pushed through a fistula, it could start an infection.
Hormonal changes that happen during puberty cause the body to produce a large amount of collagen. Unfortunately, this collagen then rubs off onto the rest of the body, where it causes new scar tissue to form. Usually, the new scar tissue will not look much like the rest of your skin, but a little bit of it will stick out enough that you will know something is wrong. The area where the new scar tissue is located is usually very sensitive, and if it is irritated, the person may experience severe pain when touching or feeling the skin.
Another type of body trauma that can cause visible scars is lacerations. Lacerations are when something cuts into the body, either physically or mentally. This type of trauma is generally the result of someone fighting with a body guard, or taking a weapon to the body. If the cut is deep enough, the scar from the injury will be very noticeable. Most people who have this type of physical damage scarring often feel a lot of pain, and may even require plastic surgery in order to make the incision smaller.
Another type of body trauma is a hemorrhage. This can occur in many parts of the body and is especially common on the face, in areas that are prone to being hit or struck, such as the nose, mouth, or chin. In these cases, people can suffer from a wide range of symptoms such as extreme pain, and bruising. People who experience a large amount of bleeding from a hemorrhage or have a history of bleeding in this area are more at risk for developing severe scarring.
Some people can inherit some type of facial or body tissue trait that will cause them to develop a particular type of scar. For example, if your parents had a birth defect that caused their skin to thicken too quickly, you probably would develop a condition known as ectopic pregnancy. This means that the tissue that is produced in the abnormal growth of your body has been inserted into your abdominal area, rather than being absorbed by your skin. This ectopic pregnancy can be potentially life threatening and is one of the main reasons why plastic surgery of the abdomen is so important.
Other types of body tissue scars include those that result from burns or car accidents. If someone was badly burned in an accident, the body tissue may turn brownish or black, as a result of extensive tissue loss. The body will usually heal itself over time, but there are creams on the market today that can help to speed up the process. People who suffer from chronic injuries are also at risk for developing this type of scarring.
Body scarring is often more noticeable than other scarring, although this is not always the case. Scars are usually caused by external force, such as infection, injury, or disease. If the force that causes the scar is internal, such as bleeding, then the scar will be more easily noticeable than it would be if the scarring had been caused by something internal.
