I went for my one week post op yesterday and I am supposed to startt massaging. My PS wants me to use a flat hand and push the implant down, hold for 10 seconds. Push the implant out to the side, hold for 10 seconds, and push the implant inward (toward the other boobie) and again hold for 10 seconds. He wants me to do the push inward way three times each session and once each for the other directions. I am to do this at least three times a day. He LOVES giving explanations for everything and he said that when scar tissues first starts to form, its a sticky, glue-like substance. He says moving the implant around in the pocket helps form the scar tissue further around the pocket, instead of all tight on the implant, and in doing that, the implant will feel soft, and that is the point of massaging them. He also told me that I don't have to wear the strap anymore! Yay! I hated that strap!
