There is no known cure for lymphoedema, but it can be managed with appropriate care. Lymphoedema is swelling caused by damage to or removal of the lymph nodes. It does not discriminate between sexes.

Any injury to the body outside of a superficial wound (scratch, small cut, etc.), results in scarring. A scar is comprised of fibrous tissue composed of collagen. Under normal conditions, the body replaces the broken down collagen with new collagen fibers at a rate that is in balance with the breakdown of the old collagen. Normally, this results in a scar that is flat, usually with coloring very similar to our natural skin pigment.
A small portion of the population is prone to keloid or hypertrophic scarring, which require treatment since they are very noticeable.
Whether you're prone to keloid or hypertrophic scarring or not, it certainly does not hurt to help your incisions along by treating them with products aimed at aiding the healing process.
Scars in younger people tend to have more pleasing results than in older people. This is due to the fact in younger people, collagen is produced at a faster rate.- See more at: http://www.simplybreastimplants.com/breast_augmentation/scar_treatment.html#sthash.wWIO3Jqp.dpuf
