Calf implants removed 3 weeks ago. Should I moisturize calfs and put vaseline on the scars? Are light scar coverings available?

Thank you for asking about your calf implants.
  • You can use vaseline, aquaphor or silicone strips on the scars
  • The silicone strips are sold as Scar Fade and similar names, in pharmacies -
  • But be sure your surgeon approves - you would not want to do any of this if you were not fully healed.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.  Best wishes. Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
