We cannot over-emphasize how important your post-op massaging is in order to preserve your excellent results of breast augmentation surgery.
Massaging begins general at a week or two after breast augmentation surgery. You will be taught by Dr. Horton and her staff how to massage directly only your own breast.
DO NOT WORRY, YOU CANNOT BREAK THE IMPLANT. It takes more than 50 times the force of a mammogram to rupture an implant!
You should be able to make your fingers meet through the implant in both the vertical and horizontal directions. You should also move the implant around in its pocket to keep the pocket open. The best time to massage is in the shower or when you are warm and relaxed. You should massage once or twice a day for five minutes.
If you have any questions about the massage technique or whether your implant is hardening, do not hesitate to contact us.
GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY MASSAGING! See the video here: http://womensplasticsurgery.com/video_massage-aug.html.
