Vitamin E is to help with capsular contracture. At 3 weeks, you're a bit early to have a CC although I guess it's possible. Massaging is unlikely to soften your breasts. I think you should insist on seeing your PS again and discussing your concerns with them. If you don't like the answers you receive, get a second opinion in person from a board certified PS in your area.

A little confused by the question but massage was never invented to make the breast soft the idea is to prevent capsular contracture but not speed up "softening". The action of massaging may help you feel better which is ok
