“…All wounds were followed up and assessed by a plastic surgeon using the Vancouver Scar Scale (VSS) and Patient and Observer Scar Assessment Scale (POSAS) at the postoperative sixth month, [5,6] and the Fitzpatrick skin type classification scale was used for categorizing our patient's skin properties.
