How recent was the procedure? I don't think it should cause a problem, as long as you keep the movements gentle. I do SLD on my affected side by applying a blob of E45 in 3 places - top of the arm, elbow and wrist. I do a few strokes using the blob at the top of my arm, upwards over the shoulder, then, as soon as it gets 'tacky' I move to the elbow blob and again, upward gentle strokes over the shoulder, then, when that's tacky, from the wrist, all the way up and over the shoulder. Usually all over in about 3 minutes. Are you getting any MLD? Could the therapist incorporate treatment on your mastopexy?
