Your surgeon and healthcare team will advise if and when you can use bio oil following surgery. Their advice will be based on a number of factors. It is advised not to apply any lotions or oil to the scars unless advised by your surgeon or healthcare team at MYA to avoid any healing complications.
Bio oil is a great way to minimise the signs of scarring after surgery, but it’s important to listen to your surgeon’s advice on when to use it depending on your procedure.
When you’re able to use bio oil, make sure you massage it carefully in a circular motion until it’s fully absorbed. It’s important to apply it regularly too, usually twice a day for three months or more. Results vary from person to person.
