Massage Post Breast Augmentation - Dr. Kris Reddy

  1. 1. Purposes for Breast Massage Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and West Palm Beach Breast augmentation expert, advises breast massage Following breast augmentation to maintain the soft feeling of your breasts (help prevent capsular contracture). Capsular contracture is when normal scar tissue surrounding the breast capsule grows tighter (contracts) around the breast implant. It can make the implant feel hard and hereby distort the appearance of the breasts. Capsular Contracture is very uncomfortable, and the most probable negative outcome after breast augmentation.
  2. 2. Moreover, breast massage can also help retain the contour and symmetry of your breasts. It can also help symmetry if one breast implant is slightly higher than another.
  3. 3. Breast Massage: Beginning Each board certified plastic surgeon has slightly different preferences on when and how to perform the breast massage. However, the general consensus is to start massaging the day after surgery by placing gentle but steady pressure with both hands for two minutes. You will then repeat the process on the other breast . As a result, you will pull the breast tissue upward while pulling the breast implant downwards.
  4. 4. As the breast pockets become less tense, you will expand the exercises per the direction of your board certified plastic surgeon. While the board certified plastic surgeon will advise you appropriately, breast massage exercises will continue most commonly for three months after breast augmentation surgery.

After the first couple of times, the breast massage process becomes more comfortable. It is key to do these breast massage exercises during the first few days to ensure most natural looking breast augmentation surgery in terms of shape and contour.
  6. 6. After three months, the board certified plastic surgeon may taper off the breast massage exercises. However, the surgeon may request that you continue to perform the exercises 2 times per day even after your breasts feel soft and the implants are moving freely. Some board certified plastic surgeons may want you to continue doing these breast massage exercises for up to 1 year for optimal benefit.
