Can I minimize the scar after a breast lift?

Hi, this is Dr. Hourglass, and welcome to another video in our channel Wonder Breasts. Today we are going to discuss: Can I minimize the scar after a breast lift? In this channel we discuss everything related to breast surgery.

Welcome back! To be able to perform the breast lift procedure, multiple incisions might be required. One goes from the edge of the areola towards the inframammary fold, another in the inframammary fold, and one more can be placed around the areola. The placement and number of the incisions depend on the level of breast ptosis to be corrected. This means that the higher the amount of skin to be removed, the larger and more numerous the incisions will be.
The scars left after the breast lift are one thing that can be a turn off for the patient. Of course, the results are impressive in terms of appearance, but scarring is unavoidable.
This is the reason why many patients ask even from the pre-operative consultation what they can do to promote fast healing and to minimize the scar after the breast lift.
The scar management after breast lift is done in two stages. The first stage starts immediately after the surgery when we apply special dressings on the surgical wound. These dressings are important to get a fast healing and reduce the risk of occurrence of a hypertrophic scar. You will be required to come back within the first two weeks post-operatively for a consultation with the surgeon, and during this time he will evaluate the surgical incisions again.
The second stage begins after two weeks from the surgery. Starting now you can massage the scars, apply silicone sheeting, creams and gels, depending on the evolution of the scars.
Six weeks after the procedure is performed, you need to see the doctor again to assess how the healing of the scars is going.
The post-operative consultations are important because it allows the surgeon to evaluate the scar cicatrization process and he can recommend additional treatments if necessary to prevent bad scarring.
To minimize the scars after the breast lift, you should avoid sun exposure on the chest level for at least six months post-operatively and also avoid smoking.
