Breast Reduction Gel Silicone Sheets
I need something that can help me improve the appearance of my post-op scars, and gel silicone sheets seem to be the best option for that (every forum and article says so). Is there any brand that has better results or do I need to know anything else about them? I know they are quite pricey but I've already spent a lot of money on this breast reduction surgery. Few hundred dollars won't make a difference.
Hi. Great question! Some people heal better than others regardless of what type of scar treatment they use. But I think it is safe to say that silicone sheeting is a good option after breast reduction surgery to help the scars heal as best as they can. Talk to your surgeon about when you should start using them. I usually recommend starting around 3-4 weeks postop. I don't think there is a "best" brand. Best of luck!

Silicone sheeting does work well to minimize the appearance of the scars. We usually wait about 1 month post surgery to start them as starting them too early can lead to irritation. Also, we try avoid using them during warm months because the moisture can also become problematic with healing. I do not think any brand is better than any other.
