I am about 2 months out from having tummy tuck and arms done. I have been using biocream from my doctors but it is like $95 and I just can't afford it anymore. Just wondering what others have used for their scars?
I went with Dr. DiNick out of Ypsilanti. He was great and my surgery was a huge success, I think anyway. I have healed wonderfully and my scars are fading just need a cheaper cream as this one is too pricy...lol. Any suggestions?
I'm 3 weeks post op and I have been using vitamin E oil and coco butter since last week once both drains were removed and I could stand to rub it in. This week as I apply it I add a little more pressure and I can feel the scar starting to soften up. Of course it will be some time before its completely healed but I will say it is WORKING. Hope the info helps
I paper tape my scars for 12 hrs a day. When they aren't taped, I lotion with Vaseline intensive care lotion and I recently started adding vitamin e oil. My scars are flat, so far. I will be taping for another 6 weeks.
I plan on using mederma at 8 weeks out.
My doc said there is no difference between paper tape and silicone strips.
