Breast Massage after Breast Augmentation

Breast Massage after Breast Augmentation ~ Houston Breast Augmentation




Purpose of Breast Massage after Breast Augmentation
  • To keep the implant pocket soft and open, resulting in a natural looking breasts.
  •  Some plastic surgeons believe that breast massage may reduce capsular contracture.   However, currently there's no clinical studies showing that it reduces capsular contracture.

Breast Implant Massage Recommendations
  • Breast massage may be started 3 to 5 days after your breast augmentation surgery.
  •  Perform this 3 times per day
Prior to massaging your breasts after breast augmentation, I recommend consulting your plastic surgeon.
