Best Scar Cream for Breast Augmentation?

I'm one and a half weeks post-op from BA. My doctor recommended me a scar cream that I find a bit too pricey (is 120 dollars) and I was wondering if I could get some other suggestions of products that really helped with the healing process. I've read very good reviews on silicone gel sheetings but 5 patches cost 190 dollars...

I would not recommend starting any scar cream or silicone sheeting until 3-4 weeks after surgery.  If you start too soon, it can irritate the area.  Most scar creams have similar effectiveness.  If cost is an issue, you can go with one of the OTC brands like ScarGuard or Mederma.  It's the mechanical massage of the cream that matters most.  The silicone sheeting is the most effective option.  It may be pricey but it does the best job of minimizing the appearance of the scars.
