How can I help minimise my scar from surgery?

A good scar management routine usually involves a combination of applying silicone gel, massaging with bio oil, using tape on the wound and keeping the area out of the sun for several months’ post surgery. The exact routine prescribed will depend on the procedure performed, the area of the body and your age and skin type.

Diligent adherence to the routine is your best chance to minimise scarring.
