I had a breast lift and breast augmentation one year ago, but I still have a little thick, raised scar on the side of my breasts. Can an old raised scar still be healed while using scar silicone gels, or is it too late since the scars are old? Will Dermatix silicone gel help for raised scars?
Revision for Thick and Raised Breast Lift Scar?

Revision for thick and raised breast lift scar?
If unsightly scars are still present after approximately a year's time, other things that your surgeon may consider are intralesional steroid injections, laser, or just surgical revision of the scar itself.
Hope that this helps! Best wishes for a wonderful result!

Treating old scars
A one year old scar may not be amenable to topical agents or pressure dressings. You may be better off with a scar revision. I would then recommend taping the area for several weeks to months and offering topical agents as well.
Revision may improve thick and raised breast lift scars
Really a photo could help. But if these scars are older than 2 years than only revision can improve, MAYBE. Go see 3 boarded plastic surgeons in person. Good Luck and Merry Merry.
