Ask your surgeon: For my patients,if there incisions were healed and there were no complications I would start them on a scar regimen.If they approached me about wanting to try Vitamin E I would be ok with that. There are no good studies to show a solid benefit of any products not the market except for maybe silicone gel and sheets. The biggest thing is to ask your surgeon, because each case is a little different
