Montelukast (Singular) after BBA
Thanks for your question and photos. Your incisions look to be doing OK. It is not uncommon to have some scabbing, particularly if you had a significant reduction in your areolar size with your mastopexy. In your previous post, you stated that you were diabetic, which will likely delay your healing time somewhat. Overall, you look like you are healing reasonably.
As far as the montelukast, you don't say why you are considering it. Although there have been some reports of it helping with capsular contracture, the reports are "anecdotal." meaning that there are no large scientific studies that clearly show a benefit. That being said, some PS still feel it may help with CC. At this point, I would ask why it was prescribed. You need to understand that it does have some potential side effects. I would discuss your concerns again with your PS.
