“I have pretty bad bumpy and red keloids under my breast folds and am getting implants removed along with the keloids. Do heavy implants have any effects on the keloids? For prevention, I am going to put sheeting onto the new scar, so was wondering which brand is preferred if I want to order silicone sheeting? I will probably order one online.”, asks a RealSelf user.
“My advice is to consult with your board certified plastic surgeon who did your procedure regarding the scars. If you truly have keloids (unlikely as most people think but do not) silicone sheets will not prevent or correct this condition. You may need injections with Kenalog or topicals steroids which also come in form of a tape (Cordran Tape). In my practice we use Oleeva scar forms, however, other brands maybe used as well.”, explains Aristocrat’s certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S.
