Scar at the lower part of the lollipop after BR. (photos)
9 months ago
My scar is improving. I've done my lollipop BR AND LIFT on 8june2016. So far I do not have any complications. Although im not very happy with the shapes, My main concern now is the scaring especially the excess skin and the dimple on the right breast. I am wearing dermatix and silicone gel 24/7 since third week. Is there any other way to manage the scar At the bottom and also the excess skin? Thanks.

Lollipop breast reduction - what about the scar?
Thank you for asking about your breast lift/reduction.
- The excess skin is expected with this reduction technique -
- It will usually disappear over 6 months - if not, a small office revision is needed.
- Continue the scar treatments but things in the photo seem to be healing well.
- Be sure your own surgeon knows of your concerns.

You are still pretty early post-op and your scar will go on to mature overtime. Best to give it time.
