Management of breast reduction scars

 

A breast reduction is a common plastic surgery procedure used to reduce the volume and weight of the female breast. Over the last several decades, a number of incision patterns have been proposed for breast reduction including the anchor scar and the vertical scar. If you are prone to developing keloids or hypertrophic scarring, it is best to keep the incision as short as possible to reduce the development of thick breast reduction scars.

In most cases, patients realize that they are prone to the development of thick scars after they have already undergone a breast reduction procedure. In these cases, hypertrophic a keloid scars have already begun to form, causing pain and scar visibility.

Keloids and hypertrophic scars of the breast are common after breast reduction surgery. Plato's Medicinals has developed a Scar Therapy Mini Kit that is useful in smoothing out visible and raised breast reduction scars. Application of the two products including Plato's Scar Serum and Plato's Dark Scar Corrector twice daily can help minimize the development of new and old surgery scars. This is particularly important for raised scars that have grown in size along the inframammary fold and areola.
