The Simple Follow-Up Therapy to Ensure Perfect, Pain-Free Results
In 2018, 313,735 Americans went under the knife to change the shape and size of their breasts. Breast augmentation surgery is a growing surgical option that allows women to have the breasts they’ve always desired. The surgery also allows those undergoing gender reassignment surgery or those with cancer-related mastectomies to regain their feminine figures and feel whole again.
Breast augmentation is a multi-million-dollar industry with cutting-edge plastic surgeons and ever-changing technology to enhance and perfect the procedure. Despite advancements in breast augmentation over the past few decades, some women still report discomfort, pain, imperfect results, and postural issues after their surgeries.
Some discomfort during the rehabilitation phase is normal, but lasting breast pain or improperly settled breasts do not have to be your reality. If you have had a breast augmentation – or are considering the surgery – and want to prevent or treat post-surgical pain and ensure the best results, the Muscle Doc Method Breast Augmentation Rehab Therapy is for you.
What is Breast Augmentation Rehab Therapy?
This specialized form of massage therapy relieves pain and discomfort that can accompany breast augmentation and reduce scar tissue. An added benefit? This therapy also helps sculpt the breasts for a softer feel, more natural-looking results, and enhanced contour and cleavage. You’ve spent thousands of dollars and many hours in surgery, let’s make sure you get the breasts of your dreams.
Breast Augmentation Rehab Therapy works to prevent or reverse the potential side-effects or imperfections of implant surgery. For instance, implants are often position below the muscle and therefore sit higher up on the chest due to the tension of the tissue in the area. In the end, we want to ensure beautiful, symmetrical breasts that feel and look soft and natural. Gentle soft tissue massage techniques are used to precisely manipulate the implants into the perfect position and reduce asymmetry.
Scar tissue often occurs post-surgery and can cause a host of issues and prevent complete healing. Pain, tenderness, achiness, and pressure near the incision or in the breast itself are common complaints we hear at the Muscle Doc Method. With our soft tissue manipulations, this hardened tissue can be softened and reduced to unblock these restrictions and promote lasting comfort for the life of your implants.
What Causes Post-Surgical Breast Pain, Immobility, or Unevenness?
Capsular Contracture: The Trouble with Scar Tissue
Capsular contracture is the excessive formation of scar tissue and implant hardening within the breast. After the trauma of a breast augmentation or reconstructive surgery, the body lies down scar tissue as a means to protect itself against injury in its vulnerable state. This scar tissue, however, hardens and causes problems with future mobility and the look and feel of the breast.
Capsular contracture can cause issues such as restricted movement, the implant feeling “stuck,” hardness or firmness of the breast, unnaturally round or misshapen breast, high-riding breast, tension, discomfort or pain of the breast.

The Second Surgery Dilemma …
And How to Avoid It
Despite expert care and high-tech procedures, some breast augmentation surgeries result in problems troublesome enough that a second surgery is needed. This can be due to improper settling, pain from capsular contracture, general dissatisfaction from results, or other issues.
We want to help you avoid additional surgeries at all costs and spare the extra time, money, energy, and recovery periods. Making Breast Augmentation Rehab Therapy part of your initial recovery is the best way to prevent re-do surgeries, pain, and dissatisfaction. You’ll not only heal faster, but you’ll be happier with your overall results.

Who Can Legally Perform Breast Augmentation Rehab Therapy?
Although Breast Augmentation Rehab Therapy uses several techniques that look and feel similar to a regular massage, this is a therapy that is reserved for trained primary health care providers. It is important that you find a licensed practitioner that is practicing these techniques safely and legally. General massage therapists do not fall under this category and are not legally permitted to perform this therapy without supervision in the state of California.
As a trained acupuncturist and specialist, Chris Brenner is a primary health care provider and able to legally and expertly provide this important service.
