Breast Implants/Breast Augmentation/Anatomic Gummy Bear Implants/ Silicone Implants/Breast Implant Revision Surgery
I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients. Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

are not supposed to be massaged... but you should be able to move your arms as you like by now but you should confirm with your surgeon since we all do things 'our way'.
Congratulations on your surgery. Sorry you are having some pain but you did have rather extensive surgery and the recovery can be rough. I would follow up with your surgeon about specific instructions given each surgeon has a different regiment. In general, if I use textured breast implant or anatomic implants I do not have my patients do any massage. I reserve implant massage for smooth round implants only. Good luck on the rest of you surgery and double check with your surgeon's office before starting any massage.
