Breast Scar Management.

FreshStart is a lightweight support garment for breast surgery patients. The garment is made of Silon-Tex, which is a soft pliable textile fabric with a durable layer of silicone on one side; the fabric is often used in burn centers to minimize scarring from serious burns. This technology has been incorporated into the cup sections of a brassiere to reduce the potential for hypertrophic scars and keloids after breast surgery, according to Bio Med Sciences, 1111 Hamilton St., Allentown, PA 18101, 610-432-8220, www.silon.com.
