I am sorry to hear about your problems requiring explantation. You are still early postop and things will improve.  Yes massage may help although you should run this past your PS. I usually wait a little longer before advising massage and I also tend to offer patients lymphatic massage for indentation. Things will improve

Contour deformities

You will most likely have very noticeable improvement in the contours over the next 6-8 months. If there are remaining significant deformities after a year they can likely be improved with further surgery.
