1- Wait to see how the scar matures...
It will likely fade of over the course of a year to a paler less noticeable skin tone at which point your breasts will have softened and relaxed taking tension off any revision resulting in an even finer line scar.
2- Wear steri strips for 3 weeks postoperatively or surgical tape- This is what I recommend for all my patients as it again takes tension off the repair site limiting the spreading of the scar. You are correct.
3. It appears as though you have undergone a lift and augmentation. Part of the problem with this operation is that you are trying to do 2 fundamentally opposed things. An implant is pulling at the skin you are trying to pull tight around the breast. Although you can see it can be done. Wide scars frequently result and it is part of the reason I often stage the procedure with a lift first then an implant with any necessary scar revisions for best and safest outcomes...
