Preventing Scarring After a Breast Surgery

by Shelby Barone

One of the biggest concerns that I had following my mastopexy (breast lift) with Doctor Niccole at CosmetiCare was the scarring. A mastopexy is a lot more invasive than a breast augmentation, but both surgeries have incisions that need to be treated to preventing scarring following the surgery.

One of the biggest concerns that I had following my mastopexy (breast lift) with Doctor Niccole at CosmetiCare was the scarring. A mastopexy is a lot more invasive than a breast augmentation, but both surgeries have incisions that need to be treated to preventing scarring following the surgery.

  The day that I got my Steri-Strips off my incisions, the nurse talked to me about the different options that I had to prevent scarring. The first thing that she recommended was that I use Silagen gel twice a day on my incisions. She told me that it is important to use a product that is made with 100% pure silicone gel to help prevent the scarring.  

  Along with using the Silagen twice a day, she recommended that I apply Silagen self-adhesive silicone gel sheeting every night. Some women use both products or just one, but since I wanted to be as proactive as possible, I purchased both products from

cosmetic care newport beach ca reviews.   At first, my incisions were a little sensitive to touch, and I had my husband help with applying the gel. After a couple of days of healing, it became less tender to touch the incisions.  

  I had done some research on my own about preventing scarring after a breast surgery, and one product that a lot of women were talking about using was Kayo daily remodeling serum. It is a face grade body cream that helps to heal your skin. Along with the Silagen gel, I have been using the Kayo cream twice a day.   I am about eight weeks post op now, and my incisions are healing nicely. The scarring is minimal, but Doctor Niccole recommended that I have a laser treatment done to fully erase the lines from my nipple to the bottom of my breasts.   I am going to start my first of three laser treatments next week and will be sharing my experience with you over the next couples of weeks.   If you have just had a mastopexy or breast augmentation, here is the breakdown of my daily scaring preventative treatment:   After showering in the morning:
 1. Apply Kayo cream (let dry)
 2. Apply Silagen gel   In the afternoon: 
Apply Silagen gel   Before bed:
 1. Clean your breasts 
2. Apply Kayo cream (let dry)
 3. Apply Silagen gel sheets   Get a complimentary consultation for a breast lift or mastopexy at CosmetiCare or have a virtual consultation from the comfort of your own home.
