Can anything help unsightly scars after breast implants?

I HAD BREAST AUGMENTATION (LIFT WITH IMPLANTS) ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO. MY SCARS ARE REALLY BAD. THE DOCTOR HAS BEEN TREATING MY SCARS WITH THE STEROID SHOTS AND THE DIFFERENT LASERS. THE SCARS ARE MUCH SMOOTHER BUT THE REDNESS/BROWN COLORATION IS JUST AS BAD!!! I AM NOT SURE IF THERE IS HOPE FOR THE SCARS TO FADE??? I KNOW TIME IS OF ESSENCE BUT I AM GOING ON TWO AND A HALF YEARS. I AM STILL SO SELF-CONCIOUS/UNCOMFORTABLE THAT I REALLY REGRET DOING IT.ON MY LAST VISIT HE GAVE ME.... WHAT DO YOU THINK I SHOULD DO? I AM THINKING OF GOING TO A DIFFERENT DOCTOR AND I WILL HAVE TO PAY SO I AM AFRAID TO PAY HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS FOR THE SAME RESULTS. THE SURGEON HAS NOT BEEN CHARGING FOR THE SCAR TREATMENT PROCESS WHICH IS ABOUT EVERY THREE MONTHS OR SO. WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND I DO? I HAVE BEEN REALLY FRUSTRATED AND WAS HOPING YOU CAN GIVE ME THE DIRECTION I SHOULD GO IN. THANK YOU FOR YOUR WEBSITE. I REALLY FIND IT HELPFUL/INFORMATIVE. ARE THERE ANY PRODUCTS YOU RECOMMEND?

I would like to try to help you but I need to know exactly which lasers were used, how many treatments for each and about how long in between each treatment.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
