| | I agree with diamond girl...I had a benelli lift in january and took it upon myself to apply mederma gel...i didnt even think to ask my PS for permission...Anyway, it was a HUGE mistake i made...I used it for a week, then developed a rash on both boobs that radiated to the whole boob....it was a hot mess...i had to be on benedryl for 4 days...crazy...anyway, my PS said, scar gels in reality do crappola...they are gimmicks and expensive...in the end, they dont look any different then if u leave it alone...he said if there was a magical potion to make them go away, we would all know about it...if you do use them, your scars should be old...like 2 years +...or else they seep into beneath the surface and could aggrivate everything...here i am 4 months later and my scars arent bad at all.
