Is it common to have a muscle tear after implants? I had bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. My doctor said as long as there is no redness or fluid buildup not to worry, but I do worry.

    Thank you so much. I have already had 1 surgery to repair it. I didn't realize pt could help.

    It's not common, but it's possible. The best thing to do is to start stretching very gently as soon as your surgeon gives you the go-ahead. (usually 6-8 weeks). The sooner you elongate the muscle around the implant, the less risk of muscle tearing. A physical therapist should be able to help you with gentle pectoral stretches and massage.
