Objective: This article summarizes the progress of surgical treatment of benign breast tumors and the prevention of incision scars during surgery. Methods: In this paper, the relevant research literature on the surgical treatment of benign breast tumors in China and the world was consulted, analyzed, and summarized. Conclusion: Many methods in this article can be used for scar treatment during the recovery period of surgery, and the success rate of these methods varies with different body constitutions. Since no single treatment modality is ideal for scarring, clinical management varies from individual to individual. The point of view of this article is that based on the basic principles of wound care, doctors need to be familiar with the problems that should be paid attention to in the process, from incision to scar, and handle the details of the operation preparation stage, operation process, and operation recovery period, and strive for ideal wound surface during the operation recovery period.
