What can be done for red stretch marks on both breasts after having breast augmentation surgery eight weeks ago?

It's been 7-8 weeks since my breast augmentation surgery and I have red stretch marks on both breasts now. I went from an A/B cup to a D cup. I want to act quickly to try and reduce them as soon as possible. I am not seeing my surgeon for another 3 weeks. I've tried Internet searching but have not gotten help there - it suggests using Cocoa Butter but that has not helped the problem. Please advise what I can do.

About the only thing that can sometimes help early (red) stretch marks is Retin-A. This may take a few months for maximum improvement and there is a chance it may not work at all. Importantly, it cannot be used if you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant.

The 1540 non ablative fractional erbium laser can reduce redness and size of stretch marks. Early treatment is important.
