    Post breast lift

    i was wondering if anyone has had breast implants, along with a breast lift! i had implants put in 5 years ago, no problem, but needed a lift as well---i never got it done in the 1st place, because i was afraid of the scarring! almost 2 years ago i had a lift done, major cutting, and bad scars! im fair skinned and have had 2 children, so i had lots of loose skin on my breasts. it took me forever to heal and was wondering if anyone else had this happen to them or know of a good scar cream that helps. i also smoke which i never knew would affect my healing time, and how the scars turn out.

    Are your scars hypertrophic? Are they red and raised? We cannot post websites here, but I would direct you to someone with bad scarring who has gotten revisions.

    thank you for replying, yes they are red, and somewhat raised---i also forgot to add that i had my areola's made smaller, so lots of scarring around that area. i have heard a little bit about scar revisions, but dont know much about it.

    If you had surgery 2 years ago, and your scars are still red and raised, then you may very well have hypertrophic scaring. The smoking may not have much to do with it. If you are predisposed to them, smoking will not make a difference. I suggest you either get the scars cut out, sewn back again, and use silicone sheeting in the anchor shape so that the scars will ot have a chance of getting hypertrophic again.
