In brief: Scar treatment

You should apply a medical tape such as medpor to your scars if possible, starting right away.
If not possible to tape or after 4 weeks you can start massaging the scars firmly and using silicone-based scar creams or silicone sheeting. Most scar creams are anecdotal but the silicone based treatments seem best. If scars are unsatisfactory, sometimes fractional laser treatment will help.
