How well your incisions heal is based on many factors including: tightness of skin when incision lines were closed, type of suture used, and how your body heals. There are many products available designed to improve the appearance of scars, such as Biocorneum or Silagen. These products are topical silicone that is the only proven scar prevention available and should be used starting at one month once the steri-strips fall off. The topical silicone can be used for two months after the steri-strips fall off. Intense pulse light can also be offered to patients who have incision line redness at three months. If these products and procedure do not achieve the desired result, a surgical scar revision may be indicated and can benefit the appearance, reposition the incision line, and possibly achieve more lift to the breast if necessary.
