16 Days Post OP question
« on: May 16, 2014, 02:43:07 PM »

I'm 16 days post OP and incredibly happy with the results so far.

I just have a question, does ALL scar tissue need to be removed with the needle, or does most sort itself out with time? There's some hard lumps (not really noticeable at all but I can feel them) on each side close to the armpit and under the nipple.

Is this just swelling? My Dr. advised me that I can take the compression vest off as of Tuesday, May 20th, which will be 20 days post OP.

When the chest area is comfortable to touch you should begin to massage it. Gentle circular motion around the chest.

I used bio oil, worked well and helps reduce scarring. I did it once a day for 20mins or so and once it's healed a few weeks you'll be able to 'mould' the scar tissue into a flatter, less visible shape before it gets too hard.

It really loosens the area up and after a few days you get quite into it xD
