The Chicago Breast Reduction Surgery Scars: 

Anytime a human being gets cut (with surgery or trauma), scars heal the following way:  Initially they are red, raised and hard.  Within 6-12 months, they are flat, white and soft.  Younger people (<18 years old) have scars that might stay active or red for up to 2 years.  Older people (>65 years old) have scars that might stay active or red for less than 3 months.

Vertical Scars (NO horizontal scars!) - this is the approach I use in about 90% of my patients needing a breast reduction.
