Hello, I am 4 weeks post op and had Mentor Memory Gel rough surfaced implants. The implants are above the pect muscle. I've read about massaging, but my surgeon did not recommend that. Do I need to massage and how? Thank you
Massage After Getting Memory Gel Mentor Implants Above Pect Muscle?

Textured implants - no massage recommended
Massage of textured implants is not generally recommended. The purpose of a textured surface is to get an implant capsule interface. The capsule actually adheres to the surface of the implant. The thought is that this reduces the risk of a capsular contracture.
