Re: Advice on massage to an implanted reconstructed breast please !

Hi, had my double mx wi tissue expander s in May 13. Physio in ward demonstrated VERY gentle massage after op, along with exercises. Important to keep skin supple and moisturised for stretching as well as avoiding capsular contracture s. Had complications but hoping to start inflation s tomorrow after seeing PS. Hope all goes well for your Op, nurses and physio on ward were brilliant for advice, so use them so that you feel confident before you head home. Post

Advice on massage to an implanted reconstructed breast please !

Can anyone advise me please ? I have heard that massaging an implanted reconstructed breast is good for preventing capsular contraction. I'm due to have mx with tissue expander and followed by a silicone implant at a later date. I'm not sure how to do actually do the massage.
thanks
