I start at one week also. I like to think of it more as physical therapy than massage. Start training the tissues to relax.
Every plastic surgeon will have different post operative protocols for breast massage. I generally start massage after the first week.
When your surgeon approves of you doing massages... In my practice I wait a week. Others start right away...
Each Plastic Surgeon has his/her own regimen after breast augmentation. Your post operative movement/messaging questions should only be addressed but your doctor or his/her nursing staff.
- since this is your 3rd question that I have recently seen, I expect you are quite anxious.
- I suggest you not do any massage without advice from your surgeon.
- S/he is the one to guide you through your recovery. Best wishes.
