Epi-Derm and Epi-Derm Natural are the premium silicone gel sheeting available for scar management. Original clear Epi-Derm set the standard for comfort and quality more than 20 years ago, and is still regarded by surgeons as the superior choice in unlined silicone gel sheeting. The Mastopexy form is a silicone sheet for scars that is ideally dimensioned for breast reduction (mammoplasty) and breast reconstruction surgery. Mastopexy forms can be cut to size, and compliment the pairs of areola circles, sold separately.
Ok, so I was apprehensive about cutting the strip and completely ruining the strip. That part was easy. However, in 1st applying the left strip, I completely messed up. The strip rolled together, and I kept putting it on & taking it off to get it just right on my scar. Once I got the left down, I had a much easier time with the right side. As a result of my trial & error with the left side, that strip was left a little messier than the right. Nonetheless, I used my strips for about two months. I bought the medical tape & found that I only had problems with adhesion in the center of my breast. The tape was a waste because it didn't hold the strips in place. I would constantly have to adjust the tape. Once I was able to wear underwire bras, I felt the strip portion in the center stuck much better. After ridiculous amounts of washing (I didn't buy silique clean, but in hindsight, I should have), picking scabs off, rolling/sticking strips together with the ends also started to lose adhesion. I advise cutting the strips a little longer so once the ends start to go you just cut that portion off. Overall, the adhesion lasted a long time, and I could continue to use it. What it really comes down to is that my scars are healing nicely and I will (eventually) go back to using my strips :)
They lost their stickiness after 2 days!! I was so excited for this product but seems like a waste of money
