Scar treatment after breast augmentation?
If unsightly scars are still present after approximately a year's time, other things that your surgeon may consider are intralesional steroid injections, laser, or just surgical revision of the scar itself.
Hope that this helps! Best wishes for a wonderful result!

Thanks for your query and congrats on your augmentation.
You should first ask your surgeon if he/she has any experience with the Embrace brand. More expensive does not always mean better. There are different qualities of silicone products with different silicone make-up. Every surgeon is different. In my practice, we use a liquid silicone product with Vit E and a topical steroid- Scar Guard.
Be leary of expensive products with little or no reviews.
Best of luck.

Embrace Scar Therapy
We have been using Embrace Scar Therapy in our practice and have found it has given good, consistent results. Keep in mind that scar treatments take time to work. It will take several months for the scars to fully mature, but the Embrace treatment should help with a favorable visual result.
Embrace Active Scar Defense
Embrace Active Scar Defense is a great scar treatment to help diminish the appearance of scars. It is preferred by many plastic surgeons because it has the most clinical evidence supporting its effectiveness compared to other passive scar treatments, such as silicone sheets that are simply placed on top of the scar. The Embrace Active Scar Defense has been scientifically calibrated to offload the tension on the incision appropriately. Incidentally, it is also made of silicone so you get the added benefits of a silicone dressing, although that is not its main purpose. While other options may be cheaper, it is important to consider that you are protecting your investment in your body. Consult your board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss how Embrace scar therapy can be beneficial to you. Good luck in your recovery and congratulations on your new body makeover!
