Will scar revision help me or should I get them redone?! (photos)

I got a Bellini Brest lift with 350cc saline implants. Wounds appeared a week after my surgery and have just started to appear like they're healing. Due to this I am extremely unhappy in the irregular shape of my Areola. My doctor said scar revision would help. I want my areolas to be circle shape and of the same or similar size. What do you think would be the best for me to do to achieve the result I want?

Sorry about the appearance of your incisions and separation. You will have to follow wound care instructions of your surgeon and when things settle down you can likely have a scar revision.

Areola shape after breast lift

Thanks for reaching out.  How far out are you from your surgery?  I would wait a full year before revising the scars on your breast to let them settle.  
I hope this helps :)

Most certainly wait

You are still early in your recovery phase since your recent surgery.  I would most certainly wait for at least 3-6 months before considering revision.Best WIshes,nana Mizuguchi, MD
