I too had hypertrophic scars across my "breasts" following bilateral TRAM reconstruction.
My PS recommended that I use Mepiform tape.
He warned me that it is expensive to buy (£100 + for a box of 5 sheets) but he told me to look for it on EBay, where you could get it for about £30 - £40.
However, I was fortunate that my GP was prepared to prescribe it for me and it worked well.
It's not an overnight fix - I wore it constantly for about a year (apart from removing it for showering!)
You cut the strips to size and you are able to use them again after removing for showers etc, until they lose their "stickiness."
It worked very well for me and I am pleased with the results.
Of course I will always have scars but compared to the red, raised hypertrophic ones they are much improved.
Please feel free to ask anything at all, either here or by PM, I'm happy to help if I can.
