BA - To massage or not to massage. Had BA in Thailand.


In Thailand the surgeons follow the USA lead and recommend massage for a couple of months to lessen the chances of fibrous tissue forming. I have seen surgeon in New Zealand because my Thai surgeon had to go in and enlarge the pocket on one breast as it was places too close to the centre line. NZ surgeon says no massage neccessary and to wear underwire to act as a splint until 3 months are up. Do i continue to massage carefully or am ok to give it up now. I am at 8 weeks now.

Unfortunately, it is very difficult to advice you of massage because I am not sure of your case. However, I advice my patients to massage and manipulate the breasts as much as they can, (more)
