How aggressive should I be with my tummy tuck scar massage?
1 year ago
I'm at the point of massaging the scar but am I trying to break down the scar tissue with more pressure or just gently massage it?

Massaging scars after surgery can be beneficial to soften the scar and allow it settle down a bit. So the idea is not so much to break down the scar, but to give it some attention so that the hardness of it may decrease a bit. Good luck.
