Surgery of any kind is no walk in the park, and breast surgery certainly isn’t most people’s idea of a fun time. Plus, breast tissue (or the absence of it) is a big part of what makes us who we are; when it is scarred after surgery, this can be problematic for patients. Providing patients the right information about how to properly help heal their scars will eliminate some of their worries following breast surgery.
Many breast surgery patients have one burning question: how long do breast scars last? The answer to this question depends heavily on many factors, such as genetic predisposition to scarring, the way in which the incision was closed, the amount of stretch applied to the wound over the course of healing, and一 of course一 the after-surgical care that they put into the daily healing process.
Breast Procedures: How To Get Rid of Scars
Regardless of why the patient sought surgery, they won’t want to be reminded of the procedure every time they look in the mirror. Scars are a natural part of the body’s healing process, but there are things they can do to speed up the process and make it more visually efficient. Assure patients that while scars are bound to form, if they follow the right treatment plan, size and discoloration of scars can be minimized.
Scar Heal Kits For Scar Treatment
Here at Rejuvaskin, we’ve designed specialty kits that contain everything a patient needs, and they should start applying the products soon after the wound has closed. Patients wondering how to heal breast surgery scars will find that our scar heal kits come in a variety of shapes and sizes一 this way, the silicone sheet fits the scar site perfectly. Let’s take a look at what comes in the scar heal kit:
Based on the shape of the incision, a patient may need one of our five options: breast anchor shape, breast lollipop shape, breast circle shape, breast piece shape, or the small rectangular shape. The silicone sheeting is designed for at-night wear; they simply need to clean the skin on and around their incision, pat dry, and apply the silicone sheets.
Silicone Scar Gel
Each breast scar treatment kit comes with a tube of our Rejuvasil scar gel. Patients may be surprised by how small the bottle is一 a little bit goes a long way! They should use this 97% silicone scar gel during the day, allowing it to dry completely before dressing. Rejuvasil is discreet and easy to apply, providing effortless, all-day protection.
Hypoallergenic Medical Tape
Although patients often don’t need it, we include a roll of our hypoallergenic medical tape in each scar heal kit. If they find that the silicone sheet isn’t sticking to their skin well, they can first try washing it gently according to the package’s directions, washing their skin and drying it completely. If the silicone sheet still doesn’t stick to the incision properly, they can use medical tape to hold it in place.
