    BioCorneum® and Arinka Forte to Reduce Post-Surgery Scarring

    As with any surgical procedure, plastic surgery requires incisions whether you are seeking breast augmentation, tummy tuck, or a facelift. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Whiteman always discusses the importance of pre and post-surgery care with his patients to minimize scarring and expedite recovery from surgery.southern plastic surgery

    Scar visibility also depends on the size of the incision, placement, the patient’s skin type and tone, age, and/or heredity.  There are also topical treatments available to reduce scarring including bioCorneum®.  This topical gel allows the scar to mature through normal collagen synthesis cycles with twice daily application.  This treatment has been shown to smooth scars and reduce discoloration; generally the recommended treatment time for newer scars is at least 60 to 90 days.

    Arnika Forte™ is an oral homeopathic pill that is taken prior to surgery to reduce bruising and swelling while promoting recovery.   This natural formula, containing a combination of Arnica Montana and Bromelain,  should be taken a couple days before surgery and continued for seven days after for maximum results.

    In addition to these treatments it’s imperative to follow your qualified board-certified plastic surgeon’s instructions for pre and post-surgery care to ensure effective results.
