Downside to smooth implants

Post by Lucy106 on 23rd December 2015, 7:19 am

Hi ladies,

Not sure you'll be able to help me much as I don't think many of u have smooth implants (do you have them boobiesplease?)... But I've been told I have to start massage on them about 1 week post op. This is because the smooth ones are designed to have more of an open pocket for natural movement of the breast and you need to manually displace the implant in its pocket to create space around it by massaging several times a day. This basically means giving them a good old squeeze upwards, downwards, side wards etc and pinching them.

But I just can't bear it! I tried last night and they still feel a bit tender plus doing it or even thinking about touching them is making me feel so sick. I feel queezy just thinking about it now!

Help! 

Xx

When did they say you could start then?
Bless you, I can't imagine do u g this for a mo th or so, they felt so alien to me for a long while, and like you say: sore, bruised and still all stitched up!

I have to say tho hun, they look flipping mazing in your avi! Your going to have a lovely result once they settle.
Well done you. :ok:


It will get better, just try and ignore them at the mo, cos they will change so much in those first few weeks.

Take it easy, and I hope you have a lovely Xmas x

Oh thankyou Twinky! I'm still unsure at the mo!

Nurse at Nuffield said to start massaging straight away but there is no way I could do that! Surgeon said one week post op but I might try and hold off just a few more days as when I google on real self it says some surgeons get you to start 10-14 days post op. You do it for about 6 weeks I think.

The other advantage is that it apparently minimises the chance of capsular contracture so I don't want to leave it too late for that reason!

I'll give it a few more days. They are still so numb and achy so I can't bear it! X

As long as your surgeon said so!

To be honest, this sort of thing, if its painful, don't do it. Leave it another couple of days, and try again. All you need to do is an open hand rolling motion I believe. Don't go pummelling yourself, as you'll do more damage than good. Just when you're ready to really.

I have smooth ones yep. The nurse mentioned massaging them but then it was never followed up by anyone so I haven't. I think my one has bottomed out so I'm not going to touch them till I can get an appointment to see the surgeon again. I'd say if it hurts don't do it or do it very gently xx
