Surgical tape..bad reaction. HELP!

Hello, I had breast augmentation and a lift 1 week ago. My surgeon bandaged my chest and used surgical tape to keep bandages in place. When he removed the tape, my top layer of skin came right along with it! Now instead of being proud of my new cleavage, I am hiding it because of the burn from the tape. Is there anything I can do to minimize the appearance of the mark across my chest?
