Hi, I had my operation on March 28th. My doctor didn't advise me to use a compression garment or anything.

It looks a bit better than pre-op but there doesnt seem to be much improvement. It looked a lot better 2 weeks ago but not anymore. Can I expect it to look better after a while or will it stay like this?

Thanks

Who was your doctor? Have you gone for a checkup to see him/her?

Yes I have. He said that there'd still be quite a bit of scar tissue. He also told me to massage my chest with moisturising cream, which I'm doing.

How long does it usually take to fully heal. Does my case look like it will fully heal? Sorry for all the questions, I was just expecting a better result.

it seems you have some mild depression on your left side just similar to mine :(.. did you ask your doctor about that.. will it become ok over time?
All the best with your recovery!
