Separation Scar and Fat Necrosis in Breast

I had a tummy tuck and breast augmentation in February and the nipple separated from the breast somewhat. There is a wide scar and I have fat necrosis, which seems to be getting somewhat smaller with massage. Do you recommend any specific treatment that I can do myself for caring for the scar and the fat necrosis in the breast? How long does this normally take to resolve?
