VITAMIN E OIL: I TELL MY PATIENTS, "NEVER EVER USE VITAMIN E OIL OR CREAM OR LOTION ON THE SKIN!"
WHY? BECAUSE I HAVE SEEN LOTS OF ALLERGIC REACTIONS TO IT . . .
BUT THAT'S JUST ME.

Ask your surgeon: It is always best to ask the surgeon who performed the procedure. Following post-op protocol is important and if you let them know what you are trying to accomplish they can advise you based on your actual case specifics.
