Your breasts look good! You may apply scar cream and moisturizer.
Thank you for the question and photos. It appears that you are on track, when your incisions are completely healed ask your Plastic Surgeon what scar treatment they recommend for you.
All the best

Thanks for your questions and photos. I'm glad that you are doing so well! Your result looks very good and I'm sure you are very pleased. At this point in the recovery process I typically recommend applying silicone products to the scars to optimize the result. I have found that applying silicone scar products continually for 2-3 months after a procedure generally leads to much better scars than if they are not used. I usually recommend Mepitac or Embrace, however there are multiple good silicone scar products available. I would recommend discussing ongoing scar care, massage, etc with your surgeon.
Every surgeon has different products that they trust to help the scar heal the best it can. I feel that silicone is the best type of product there is.
I would consult with your plastic surgeon to see what he/she recommends.

I would recommend following your surgeon's guidelines. Call them.

I think you should follow your surgeons instructions. In my practice, I would recommend using steri strips over the incisions and using a moisturizing cream or lotion as needed. I would also recommend general implant massage. This would vary based on your surgeons recommendations.
