How Effective Are Silicone Gel Treatments for Scar Reduction?

I have a breast augmentation and tummy tuck procedure tomorrow. I am exploring scar reduction resources. How effective are the silicone gel treatments like Kelo-cote and NewGel + ?

Silicone scar gel with Plato's Scar Serum

Scar serums that contain silicone work well. Our office's choice remains the Plato's Scar Serum which contains polysiloxanes.
