Massage Therapy

Massage is only recommended for smooth surface implant; textured surface
implant does not require massage.
Massage should begin 5-7 days after surgery. It must be given 4 times a day
for 3~6 months after surgery in order to prevent complications such as
capsular contracture and to enhance fast recovery.
