Is It Safe to Eat Seafood After Breast Implants Removal?

I had my saline breast implants removed on 05/20/11 due to capsular contracture. How soon can I start the breasts massaging to help them firm up because I heard it does help somewhat. Is there a detox process after your surgery to help your body healed from surgery and what does it entail? Please advise. Greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Breast Implant Removal?

Thank you for the question.

There should be no diet or massage restrictions after removal of breast implants. A “detox” process is not necessary.

Best wishes.

No exercise or food restrictions after breast augmentation removal.

Most of the time there are no restrictions for exercise or diet after removing breast implants.  I'm assuming by your description that you did not have new breast implant placed after removing the capsule.  Follow your doctors instructions regarding massage, but most of the time I have my patients begin one week after breast surgery.

There are no food restrictions after a breast implant removal

A healthy and balanced diet is always advisable.  However, there are no dietary restrictions for the average person after a breast implant removal.  Most people are overall healthy and have a normal healing potential.  There is no requirement for any special diet to optimize your healing and cosmetic appearance.

Detox After Breast Implant Removal?

I am not aware of any detox programs after breast implant removal.  A healthy diet is important as well as exercise.  Usually the breasts improve with time.

No food restrictions

If you did not have new breast implants after removing the capsule there are no exercise, nor food restrictions after removing breast implants. However, if you had new implants allow at least 6 weeks for recovery before performing any exercises.
