Hello there,
Is there anything at all that can be done before surgery to prevent ingrown hair in the incisions?
And what are the best way to deal with it after the surgery (around areolas)?
Thank you

Interesting question,this is not something that has been a problem for me in over a thousand cases. If you are concerned you could shave the area three to four days before surgery. You should not shave the area the night before surgery.
