Can I Take Serrapeptase and Rub Honey on Liposuctioned Areas?

I am concerned about developing internal scaring and wondering if I can rub honey on the skin of liposuctioned areas and take serrapeptase enzyme? If so how soon after the procedure is it safe to do so? Thanks

    I do not recommend either of these to my patients after liposuction.                                                                                                                      Kenneth Hughes, MD                                                                                                                                        Los Angeles, CA

I doubt either will help

There is reason to think that either or these will have any real effect on internal scarring after liposuction.  That said, there is not a lot of internal scarring after liposuction.  But if you really want to take them, I would wait until your incisions are healed prior to using the honey, and wait one week after surgery prior to taking the dietary supplement.
