How to make areola scars from breast surgery disappear?
I was informed that there would be some scarring following the type of breast augmentation surgery I elected to have but I didn't expect the areola scars to be as ugly as they are. It has only been a few months and I recognize I must be patient but is there anything that can be done to speed up the scars' healing process or to flat-out make them disappear?
Unfortunately, scars after surgery never "disappear", but they could fade to the point that they are not noticeable. Silicone-based scar creams and silicone sheeting have been shown to be very effective at minimizing the appearance of scars. Thicker scars may need to be injected with a steroid to help flatten them. Discolored scars may be helped with IPL or laser treatments. It will take 12-18 months before scars are considered "healed".
