Taking Care of Your Surgical Scar
What most anyone would think of when they have surgery is what that scar will look like after. How long is the scar? Will it keloid? How will it fade? Fortunately, when having a breast augmentation procedure with Dr. Ciaravino, you can rest assured that they are very small and well-hidden. The incisions are about 1 inch with saline and about 1 1/4 inch with silicone. At your pre-op visit you will receive a tube of prescription strength Scarfade gel. You will apply this to your incision two weeks post surgery to help the scar fade. Try not to lift your breast to see the scar but do There really is no way to tell how one’s incision will heal. Good nutrition and care can assist with good healing. Also, keeping your scars from sun exposure and covering it when in a tanning bed. It takes a scar 12-18 months to fully mature so be patient with it and give it time. As always please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions about this or other surgical procedures.
