What can be done to reduce/lighten the scars from lipo/drain tubes? Do they shrink more after 7 weeks and do they continue to be indented and red? Any advice on helping improve the appearance?

I recommend Biocorneum but you could also use Mederma or Scaraway

I'm a fan of the silicone gel products such as ScarFade, Scarless, ScarGuard, and so on.  And time fades most scars.
