Scar Therapies

After breast augmentation surgery, it is important for patients to begin a scar therapy early in the healing process. For patients who are prone to hypertrophic or keloid scarring, Embrace Active Scar Defense can be a great solution. Patients can also benefit from using bioCorneum, which is a silicone scar gel. Silicone scar gels are typically used for up to one year after surgery as it takes one year for scars to fully mature. Consult your board-certified plastic surgeon regarding which scar therapy is best for you. Good luck in your recovery!

Plato's Scar Serum for your breast scars

I would recommend a conservative regimen that includes steri strips for the first few weeks and Plato's Scar Serum thereafter for a few months.

Scars on Breasts -- Laser, Microneedling, Medical Tattooing

I suggest using silicone based scar gels until the scar has healed. Lasers, medical tattooing and combination treatments can be used to improve scarring. I suggest you see an expert in lasers and scars. Best, Dr. Emer
