That’s a very common and understandable question. Soreness is definitely to be expected at 1 week after surgery, and even more so after massage. Make sure you discuss how much discomfort you’re having with your surgeon in order to assess how forceful you’ve been with massage, and whether you should initiate the use of anti-inflammatories. Your surgeon will walk you thru the process and has your long-term aesthetic goals in mind.
On a side note, congrats!
Please talk to your surgeon about your soreness following massage. While some soreness is to be expected, it's important that the massage is properly performed so as to not cause further trauma to your breasts.
Massage is one of those things that nobody really has a good reason or explanation for. I actually never use it because I think it causes more harm than good. Please speak to your PS
Your result looks very good and it is normal to have pain for several days to 4 to 6 weeks but this will get better with time. I would encourage you to continue to follow your surgeons advise. Good Luck
This can be expected. Be sure to discuss this with your PS. In most cases, it is normal but again, only your PS can confirm this for you.
Congratulations on your surgery. Soreness after surgery is normal, especially this early on. Also, it is normal for the discomfort to increase after massage. As long as you are following your plastic surgeon's instructions you are likely not doing any harm. I would discuss with your surgeon your concerns. Good luck.
Congratulations on having undergone the breast augmentation procedure; by the way, your outcome thus far seems quite nice. Some soreness after massage is to be expected (this does not necessarily mean you are doing “damage”; the use of anti-inflammatories, if okay with your plastic surgeon, may be helpful. Best wishes; hopefully you will be very pleased with the long-term outcome of the procedure performed.
It is normal for there to be residual soreness to the breasts for several weeks postoperatively. I would expect that you would experience a bit more discomfort after massage. If you have any doubts about your level of discomfort, please confirm with your doctor that your technique is not too aggressive.
