NewGel+ Scar Solution

This is an unpaid testimonial for the line of NewGel+ scar management products from Chicago-area plastic surgeon Dr. Karol Gutowski.


Hi, I'm Karol Gutowski, I'm a board certified plastic surgeon in the Chicago area. I've been practiced for over 12 years and I'm a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Almost every patient who's considering surgery is wondering what the scars will be like, so I have a discussion with every patient about things that can be done to minimize the scarring right after surgery and ways of treating established scars after surgery.

I started recommending the NewGel+ silicon products after reading extensive literature supporting the use of silicon based materials in reducing scars. The patients immediately see a reduction in the scar and the scars are less raised, less red and less firm. The NewGel products are easy to use, they're not very expensive and the customer service is very good. I've been very happy for the many years that I've used the NewGel products and I encourage all my patients to consider using it after surgery or to treat established scars.
