Protocols for Post Operative Surgical Scar Treatments


Dr Wyten provides patients with best-practice scar treatments. It is important to remember that cosmetic surgery scars are part of having surgery. As a result, scars can vary significantly from patient to patient. But fortunately, there’s a lot you can do – and that we can do – to minimise your cosmetic surgery scars. Not all surgeries require high-tech scar treatments, but for those that benefit from these options, we can assist in numerous ways.

Dr Wyten discusses scar management during your initial consultation and/or at your pre-surgery or follow-up reviews. If laser scar treatments or light therapy is recommended, it’s available in the same building as our clinic.

Note that additional visits and treatment costs apply to skincare and longer-term scar treatments.

When you attend a consultation or follow-up appointment, you’ll learn what our teams can do to help improve your skin and reduce your surgery scar. Further, we make efforts to minimise your incision line scars. But please be aware some patients will scar more visibly or more pronounced than others. Some patients may heal in a way that leads to stretched scars or raised scars with varying skin pigmentation.

Rapid Recovery Packs


Recovery and wound healing is aided by Rapid Recovery – be sure you read the guide and use these recovery aids. Silicone strips may also help but are an optional expense. Further, garments must be worn as recommended and bandages must be kept clean and sterile. Follow up visit(s) to Coco Ruby Skin Care Clinic may be required for better scar results.

It’s important to follow all wound-care and scar treatment recommendations to reduce your risks of having a more visible scar, but to also recognise that scars will vary.

To combat poor scar formation after plastic surgery, ask us about:

  • The Rapid Recovery Kit – with proven aids for your healing period
  • Incision line ointments and/or skin oils
  • Compression Garments (Post-Op Support Garments, if applicable)
  • Scar reduction treatments for long-scar procedures (Tummy Tucks, Breast Reduction, Arm Reduction Surgery)
  • SkinPen/Skin Needling for scar tissues 
  • Healite II Treatments
  • Fraxel Laser scar therapy if recommended
  • V-Laser to reduce redness in scars
  • Other recommendations or treatments
