As an important part of the recovery process after getting breast implants, massage will help to break up any scar tissue that may be forming as your body is healing from surgery. However, before you go at it and start to massage your breasts, it’s important to know exactly how to massage them so that you get the best results.
Step 1: Before you start massaging your breasts and implants, take off your top and bra so that you don’t have any clothes on— this will make the entire massage process a lot easier to do.
Step 2: With both hands on one breast, start applying gentle pressure in order to move the implant down and away from your natural breast tissue for about 10 seconds. By separating the implant away from the breast tissue, you will help to prevent against any scar tissue from forming— which can be painful later on down the line. When applying pressure, make sure that you are applying enough pressure to move the implant but not so much that you are experiencing pain. Although you won’t rupture your implant when applying pressure, you don’t want to injure yourself in the process.
Step 3: Repeat step 2 on each breast every day for about 1-2 weeks or as your doctor from Cosmetic Surgery of NY recommends.
