Can you recommend some good scar creams post-breast augmentation?

I've seen a number of scar creams online but I don't know which to choose. Are there any you recommend? When can I apply it and how long before I see results?

Hi, thank you for your question. I would consult your board-certified plastic surgeon to see if they have any recommendations.

I recommend silicone sheeting, vitamin E supplement or topical ointment after the scar has healed, which is typically about 6 weeks or so. Self-massage of the scar after it has initially healed may be beneficial as well.

Ask your surgeon about the timing because the healing process varies between individuals.
