Breast massaging is an important part of your breast augmentation recovery care. When breast implants are placed during your augmentation surgery, scar tissue can form around them, a process known as capsular contracture. The goal of breast augmentation massage is to help prevent or minimize the development of excessive scar tissue and maintain soft and natural-looking breasts. Breast augmentation massage techniques, when performed correctly and with appropriate pressure, can help break up any potential scar tissue formation, promote implant mobility, and give you a more natural shape.

How Often Do You Need to Massage Your Breasts After Your Breast Augmentation?

Breast implant massage is an essential technique for those who have undergone breast augmentation. It helps in maintaining the softness of the implants and ensuring their proper positioning. The following steps provide a detailed guide on how to perform these massages effectively.

Once your breasts are a little less sore, as early as 5-7 days after your surgery, you should begin to massage your breasts to help open up the pocket to give the implants room to move around and maintain a natural look. After your breast augmentation, you should do a breast augmentation massage every single day for a few minutes to maintain mobility and avoid capsular contraction. This should be a life-long process so you can be sure to notice any changes in your implants!

How to Massage Breasts Implants Instructions

Step #1: Displacing the Implant

The first step involves displacing the implant to maintain its mobility within the breast pocket. This process is crucial for preventing capsular contracture, a condition where scar tissue forms around the implant, leading to hardness.


Using your thumb and pointer finger, gently pinch your breast from the sides. Then, carefully push your breast inward. This action allows the implant to slide upward towards your collarbone. It’s essential to perform this motion gently to avoid any discomfort or damage to the breast tissue.

Step #2: Shifting the Implant

The second step focuses on the horizontal movement of the implant. This technique is essential to maintain the implant’s flexibility and prevent it from becoming fixed in one position.


Using the same thumb and pointer finger, move your breast implant horizontally. Perform a side-to-side shifting motion, guiding the implant towards and away from your other breast. Ensure that this motion is done smoothly and without applying excessive force.

What Else Do I Need to Know Post Breast Augmentation Surgery?

I don’t even know where to begin with how absolutely amazing Dr.T and his staff are. I had a breast augmentation on March 5 2020, and just everything from the start has been smooth and effortless. I never felt like just another number, I was taken care of every step of the way. He is warm kind honest and will point you in the right direction, and it’s so awesome to have my own nurse anytime I need to get ahold of to answer questions. He is a true artist and I am so happy with the outcome, look, feel everything im obessed. It was an honor to have work done by him, if you are interested in any type of cosmetic procedures don’t look any further.

Dr. Truong has given me life-changing results. He did a wonderful job on my Lipo360 and my confidence has sky-rocketed since. I see muscle tone in my abdomen at the gym now; I knew it was hiding under there! Great bedside manner and a very talented surgeon.

I Couldn’t Be Happier with my Results and Couldn’t Have Selected a Better Plastic Surgeon!

Rated 5.0 out of 5

I recently had a tummy tuck procedure which was performed by Dr. T only about 3 weeks ago. I feel & look great! I can’t express how ecstatic I truly am! I’m in my 30’s with no kids, struggling with weight since I was a teenager. My weight fluctuating over the years caused me to have a pouch (very unattractive). I’m still on the plus size but a hanging belly made me look even heavier and impacted my self-esteem. Before I went to Dr. T for a consult. I reached out to several of the popular Instagram doctors aboard. I watched countless videos of other girls who shared their experiences having surgeries in other countries. I received several cheap quotes compared to the prices in Chicago and other U.S cities. But I just couldn’t risk traveling aboard and jeopardizing my health to save money. I’m writing a long review because prior to my surgery and even before my consultation. I searched endlessly, for honest reviews from other patients who had gotten a tummy tuck and were in the same predicament as myself. It’s only been 3 weeks but my body has transformed and my self-confidence has increased. I’m looking forward to the final results which do take several months.

The recovery has been really easy! Please don’t be disheartened by the scary and painful experiences shared on social media and YouTube. I understand everyone’s body is not the same and each of us will have a different experience with our recovery. With that being sad, having an experienced, board certified, and a gifted plastic surgeon makes all the difference. Honestly, hardest part of the recovery was not being able to drive for the first 2 weeks. Driving restrictions will be given by all plastic surgeons who perform tummy tucks. I was hesitant because it was my surgery and also because of the cost, but Dr. T’s prices are fair, affordable and competitive in the Chicago market. I was not pressured into getting the surgery, my questions were thoroughly answered with kindness and patience by Dr. T, and his wonderful assistant Monika. I asked countless redundant questions and spent a great deal of time with both of them before finalizing my decision. The entire staff is so professional, nonjudgmental, genuinely kind and caring.

Final thoughts, it might be cheaper to travel aboard but it’s not worth the risk. I made decision to undergo my surgery ever with Dr. T, not only because of his merits, academic accomplishments and amazing procedure results and also his swag, but because of his of aura. It’s hard to explain but you will sense it when you meet him, he’s honest, patient, kind and most importantly he’s ethical. He doesn’t recommend unnecessary procedures or enforces changes he wants to see on you. He will help and guide you in achieving the body you have envisioned for yourself. My only regret is not getting a tummy tuck sooner with him. It’s embarrassing but I’m sharing my pictures because I had desperately searched for body types like my own, who had gotten the procedure and wanted to see their results. I hope my very long review helps anyone considering tummy tuck. If you’re in Chicago meet Dr. T if you’re interested in the tummy tuck, it’ll be totally worth it! Always read others review on Realself, never thought I’d be writing one too! 🙂


Loving my BBL Results! 2 months Post Op

Rated 5.0 out of 5

I did a LOT of research to find the perfect surgeon who could deliver natural, yet superior results. I wanted a BBL that didn’t look like I had an obvious surgery done, but that would improve my figure and give me that beautiful hourglass shape along with lifting and filling out my sagging behind. I knew from my first consultation with Dr.Truong & by the looks of his portfolio, that he would be the one to do my surgery! I brought along photos of what I personally wanted to achieve and he told me exactly what he would need to do to achieve those results. I gladly traveled from out of state to have my BBL surgery by Dr. Truong and it was the best decision I’ve ever made!! Everyone at his office and the morning of my surgery were so nice and accommodating. I can not recommend him enough and I think my before and after photos speak volumes! He clearly is highly skilled in lipo sculpting and fat transfer! If you have been thinking about this procedure and are on the fence, you just need to do it! You will be in great hands with Dr. Truong & his staff. Your confidence will undoubtably be boosted after this procedure; Mine sure was, and I’m absolutely thrilled with my results!
