Breast massages breast augmentation

Among the most popular complications associated with breast augmentation is the capsular contraction. However, surgeons have found out a way in order to lessen the possibility of experiencing this condition. One way to diminish the risk of having a capsular contracture is by performing breast massages after the surgery. My protocol includes not only breast massage but also some breast exercises that will help with the following:

  • Decrease swelling
  • Break the scar that is forming through the healing process
  • Help the breast settle after surgery, so you do not have a high-riding breast.

I recommend that the patient start doing breast massages within 24 hours after surgery. The routines are simple. The first thing you need to do is stretch your arms all the way up with your elbows straight and touch each side of the hand above the head. You are going to go up and down multiple times for about 5 to 10 minutes.

I do not recommend to my patient to sleep on their side because in most cases, it puts too much pressure on one breast that can easily lead to breast asymmetries. Usually, patients are allowed to sleep in this position three to four days after the intervention.

Oftentimes, I also recommend to my patients to take a shower with warm water to soften the tissues; you can do this in the shower. After stretching your arms, massage each breast with the opposite hand, squeezing until it feels uncomfortable. If your skin elasticity is not the greatest, don’t massage aggressively, because you can actually drop the implant significantly after surgery by applying too much pressure. I have seen many patients developed capsular contracture and breast asymmetries barely a year after the plastic surgery. So, follow the recommendation of your surgeon closely if you want the best result possible.
