How soon after a tummy tuck and lipo ca you start using scar creams? Also when can you start massaging the lipo areas?

Thank you for your question and congratulations on your recent surgery. I instruct all of my patients to perform daily scar massage and apply a silicone based scar ointment or tape to their incisions. Biocorneum makes an excellent product. Please ask your board certified plastic surgeon for specific instructions regarding his or her scar management protocol. Hope this helps!
In 3 decades of practice you can imagine how many different scar treatments I have tried. We now recommend BioCorneum which your surgeon can obtain from the manufacturer.
