Scar management - anatomicals

Post by MrsF on 18th December 2015, 11:59 am

Hi girls,

Over 3 weeks PO now. Thank god time has flown as the first few weeks were a bit of an emotional ordeal for me... Much harder than I thought. Physically and boob wise all great though.

I have to start ' massaging my scars' apparently. But I wasn't shown how to do it, all I know is I need silicone gel. can anyone enlighten me a bit on how to do it. Where to get that gel? if it can be done with any other product?

Also they have told me I didn't need to do the full boob massages as I have cohesive gel tear drops, any other things I can do to make them softer, or is it too soon? they are rock hard.

Thanks for all your help will start picture trail soon. xxxxx

I can't believe you are over 3 weeks!!! And I'm glad time has flown - I can't wait to get to your stage.

I don't know much about the scar massage I'm afraid but maybe try you tube - they have demonstrations. 

Do you have textured implants? If so I know you aren't supposed to massage them. Mine are smooth so I have to do a whole range of massages to keep the pocket open but after 1 week thankgod - I can't bear to look at them let alone touch at the mo!

Your Avi looks gorgeous hun!!! How did it feel trying on that bra!? They will stay rock hard for a while yet hun, but trust me, the min you stop obsessing over them it's when you suddenly think 'Omg they are softer!'. I hope your recovery has been ok! You look FAB in your pic :)

My mum was told to use a sillicone gel and found it really helped, but my surgeon recommended to me a vitamin oil which she believes more effective. As with everything boob related, we are all told completely different things so prob best to go with your own surgeons recommendation.

I would call the clinic and speak to someone, even if it's just the nurse and be told exactly where you can get the gel, and brands they recommend and would they mind emailing you or telling you how to massage the scar. My scars had to be covered for 3 months, and it was only after that point she showed me how to massage them using the oil. She did a firm pressing motion across the scar (which at that point were lumpy and a little scabby) and now they are so smooth and just feel like normal skin!

Let us know how you get on xxxx

Who told you that, surgeon or nurse? Id be sceptical, there really is no need to massage anything at 3wks. Your scar don't be properly healed enough to use a lubricant, and dry massage is weird! At 6 you can just use any moisturiser and a circular motion, theres no secret way of doing it. Its to help break down the scar tissue. But loads of girls, Inc me, dont, and their scars are just as flat and invisible.

As for your implants, if double check if you're meant to massage them. It could encourage rotation.
