How to Prevent Scar Tissue After Breast Augmentation Surgery
Scarface may have been cool but scar tissue after a breast augmentation surgery is not so cool. Although a little bit of scar tissue is normal, too much scar tissue can form a tight bond around the implant which can be very painful. Luckily, here at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, we have several tips that you can use to prevent scar tissue from forming.
A back massage is relaxing, but massaging your breasts after surgery to prevent against scar tissue, may be a bit painful at first, but it’s absolutely necessary. Massaging your breasts actually breaks up any scar tissue that is forming and as long as you do it on a consistent basis, you should be in the clear. To massage your breasts, you want to gently take your index and middle finger and massage around your breast scarring at the top and working your way all around the breast in a circular motion. Then, from there, you will want to switch breasts.
Wear A Support Bra
Another way to keep your breasts in good shape and present them from forming scar tissue? Make sure that you wear a support bra. Support bras will ensure that your breasts heal properly without getting injured from moving around too much.
Drink More Water
Water is your body’s number one best friend when you are recovering. Not only will water keep you hydrated, but it can also help your body heal fast and may even cut down on the production of too much scar tissue.
