Whatever the nature of your procedure, as you prepare to go into surgery you might be concerned about a particular after-effect: how to treat a breast scar.

It works to enhance the natural scar healing process to soften and flatten stubborn raised scarring, which makes this the perfect post-procedure product to minimize your risk of surgery scarring.
The Most Common Breast Procedures (& The Best Scar Fx Sheeting Options For Each)
Also called breast lifts, women choose to have a mastopexy when their breasts begin to sag due to either age or the skin not being strong enough to support the weight of the breasts. During a breast lift, your surgeon will remove this excess skin to create a more lifted appearance to your breasts.
