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.

Prior to massaging your breasts after breast augmentation, I recommend consulting your plastic surgeon.
