I used this product in an attempt to reduce hypertrophic post face lift scars on the back of my neck. I started using the product 3-months post-op and wore it religiously 20+ hours/day...... Results: None. The scars remained hypertrophic..... However, this product is great in protecting scars from abrasion. In my case, the scars were so irritable, everything irritated them: clothing & even hair just touching the scars. This product provided a great barrier....... I had the scars revised four-weeks ago. This time, along with using this product 20+/- hours/day, we started a cortisone injection regime. The barrier function is still effective and my fresh scars are less irritable than previously....... For my 2" long neck scars, I purchased the 1" x 22" tummy tuck silicone. I cut the length I need and split the 1" in half. This customized strip to fits my scars perfectly.

1 week post-op it's too soon to tell if this product speeds my recovery. I think of it as adding to my overall health, which cannot be a bad thing. After reviewing the doses of each ingredient, I am satisfied my diet will be well supplemented by this product. Added plus: easy to digest.

Used on 4-month hypertrophic neck-lift scar. It's got all the right ingredients but difficult to use. Use too little, you don't get enough coverage. Use too much and it over-covers the raised scar, onto skin and hair. Then it peels all over clothes, car, carpets.

MakeMeHeal Surgery Healing Supplements & Vitamins Kit (Pre & Post-Op Formulas)

This Pre & Post Op Multinutrient Kit (no Vitamin E) has been designed specifically to help patients accelerate healing and obtain better cosmetic results following plastic surgery (as well as general surgeries) by providing all the vital healing supplements, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids that have been shown to be vital for preparing the body for surgery and for helping one have a faster recovery. Taken in tablet/pill form starting anywhere from 1-2 weeks pre-op or several days before the surgery up until 30 days post-op, the Multinutrient Kit helps build and maximize your body’s tissue reserves of nutrients that are important for the healing process, helps speed up recovery by strengthening the body’s natural healing process, helping reduce swelling and bruising, supporting wound healing, promoting repair and growth of tissues damaged by surgery, and by protecting the body from infection by enhancing the immune system defenses. Appropriate for both women and men of all ages.
