If you're considering breast augmentation in the Walnut Creek metro area, you probably already know that there are lots of ways to prepare for surgery. But what about afterward? During the recovery, Dr. Mariotti encourages patients to regularly perform breast implant massage as a way to get the best possible results and ensure their new breasts feel and look just as natural as they'd envisioned.

The Importance of Implant Massage

After certain types of breast augmentation, massaging the breasts is a vital part of the healing process. Careful, appropriate massage can aid in the following:

  • Encouraging the implants to drop and settle into place
  • Maintaining the softness of implants
  • Reducing the risk of certain complications, such as capsular contracture

Implant massage is especially important within the first few weeks after surgery, but Dr. Mariotti may give you specialized instructions for massage after the 3-week mark.

Not all breast augmentation patients should massage, however. Women with textured implants also may not need to be massaged, as the textured exterior helps the implants stay in place.
