Tips for Minimising scars after Breast Augmentation Surgery.

One of the major reasons women undergo breast augmentation surgery is to boost their confidence and enhance their appearance. There is nothing that gives a person more confidence than knowing that they are looking their best. According to research in cosmetic surgery, breast augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures among ladies. However, just like any surgical procedure, breast augmentation surgery will leave scars on the body. Despite having perfect breasts, these scars may lower the self-esteem of women. Although there is no way to hide scars completely, you can minimise the visibility of your scars with the following tips.

  • Undergoing massage therapy.

Undergoing massage is known to be one of the best ways to prevent the contraction of muscles around the breasts after a breast augmentation procedure. Massage may seem to be a simple way of eliminating scars, however, this will go a long way in facilitating the healing process. When you regularly rub the areas around your incisions with a cream that contains vitamin E and aloe, it speeds up the healing process. This is most effective when started at the early stage as it prevents the formation of excess scar tissue and thus creating smooth skin with very minor undetectable scars.

After undergoing surgery, it is recommended that you should follow the advice of your plastic surgeon. You can get find reputable expereinced plastic surgeon in Australia on various platforms such as who a reputable agency willing to guide you through the process. Basically, scars will often appear after 2 weeks and for you to have the best results after breast augmentation surgery, it is recommended that you should perform scar massage at least two times a day for a period of two to three months.

  • You should avoid sun exposure by all means.

Direct exposure to sunlight can often result in itchiness and redness on and around fresh scars, including those resulting from breast implantation surgery. To speed up the healing process, it is advisable that you avoid direct sun exposure to the scars for a period of at least one year. You should ensure that the clothing and swimsuits you wear do not leave the scars exposed and will protect the scars from  UV beams. If you plan to go swimming after your surgery, it is important that you should seal the scars by use of medicinal tape. This guarantees you protection from any accidental exposure of sunlight. It is ideal to avoid sun exposure on your scars for at least 1 year post surgery.

  • Use of scar gels or silicone sheets.

This involves applying silicone sheets over the scars in order to speed up the healing process. This process reduces the redness and/or irritation that may come after undergoing breast augmentation surgery. This technique is preferred among many women as the procedure tends to make the scars undetectable and thus minimise the appearance of the scars. Silicone sheets often come in pre-cut shapes that are designed to fit in the entry point.

The scar gel is made from silicone and should be applied around the scar at least two times a day. These gels are basically designed to repair and thus making the scars less detectable.

By following the above three measures you will see faster healing process and your scars may become almost undetectable.
