Scarring

Post by Laural92 on 4th August 2015, 10:23 am

Hi Everyone,

I had surgery on June the 1st 2014 I went from a small B to a double D. Dr Khan from Transform was my surgeon. I love my new boobs however the scars I have been left with are horrible. Over a year after a surgery they are still raised and red, I really don't know what to do as I'm sure this is not covered under warranty. Has anyone had this problem and fixed it? I have tried silicone sheets but didn't see much improvement so didnt stick to them. However maybe I didn't do it for long enough? Anyone had success with these? These were suggested by my surgeon. I also have scarring cream from boots.

Thanks in advance for any advice given.

As I said in my other post, try the oil. My mums had her boobs done and used sillicone treatment (I think it was a gel called Dermatix) which she thought was excellent. She also went with Transform and had pretty bad scarring. She reckons the Dermatix really helped (and they are pretty invisible now!)

I am seeing really great results from the Environ oil. This was recommend by my surgeon personally. When I mentioned the Dermatix she kinda pulled her face and said she didnt think it really penetrated the skin like thsi oil does. Plus you can use the oil across the whole breast to keep skin supple, nourished and healthy (prevents wrinkles too!)

Either way, my mum swore by Dermatix, I love this oil, and some ladies on here use nothing and have had fantastic results.

I've been back to see my surgeon about my scars as mine are still fairly obvious due to pigmentation. I've done a fair bit of research and got his advice which was similar to the opinions of other surgeons on websites like real self. He basically said now the scar is past it's healing stages people spend a lot of money on 'scar treatments' to no avail, and really the best most cost effective (in the long run) treatment is a simple scar revision. He believes when the scar reheals in pre-stretched skin, rather than under tension, it will heal better.

I've no idea whether he'd give the same advice to you as obviously we have different scarring issues, but might be worth getting the advice of your surgeon, remembering many plastic surgeons are scar specialists. Good luck!

Ps in case anyone's interested ive been using a product called melaclear that my surgeon gave me to try before deciding on whether to have a scar revision (which I don't think I'm going to bother with!).

Hiya thank you both for your replies. How much is a scar revision mammamia? Or does your warranty cover it? I don't think mine does at transform

Mine was included within a year, and then after that I would need to pay hospital fee of £150 but surgeon is free. But that is spire and I'm guessing each place has different policies. I was actually surprised it was covered as everyone scars differently and always a risk x
