Am I a good candidate for scar revision? (photos)

(I'm currently 8 months post op) Would scar revision be able to help with a scar of this severity? I had necrosis in this area (right breast).

Scar Revision Candidate

Thank you for your question and your photos.  You are a good candidate for scar revision of the area where you had necrosis.  The remainder of the scar will continue to improve over the next 6-8 months.  In the interim, silicone scar gel or sheeting will help.  Best wishes.

Thank you for your question.  Allow at least 12 months from surgery to pass and until all tissues are soft before considering a scar revision.  Good luck.

Needs more time

Some more time will help as the tissues and scars still need to mature.Seems that around a year or so will be the best time in your situation.
