6D-Tape Breast Surgery Set
for the treatment of scars and swelling after breast surgery
The 6D-Tape Breast Surgery Kit is a self-help kit for scars and swelling after breast surgery. It contains instructions and pre-cut strips of 6D tape for two 3-to-10-day treatments.
Scars and swelling after breast surgery
The scar that forms after breast surgery can cause adhesions between injured areas of tissue. Such adhesions often limit the sliding of the tissue and reduce its elasticity and movement. A scar on connective tissue or fascia often restricts movement and causes pain not only in the scar area but also in other parts of the body due to tense connective tissue chains. Lymph flows in the surface layers of the skin. Swelling or lymphoedema occurs when scar tissue with adhesions blocks the flow of lymph. Lymphoedema can also be caused by the surgical removal or injury of lymph nodes. Removing lymph nodes from the armpit of a breast cancer patient can lead to lifelong lymphoedema in the arm. Soft tissue movement can increase mobility and elasticity of the scar area, loosen adhesions attached to connective tissue and reduce swelling.
Six-dimensional tissue mobilisation with 6D Tape
The 6D Tape activation pads are designed to help the user mobilise the tissue in 6 directions The six dimensions are the front, side and upward directions or the x, y and z axis directions and the rotations around each axis. Mobilising the tissue has a positive effect on the lymphatic system, circulation, fascia, scar tissue, muscles, and joints. By activating the tissue up and down with the 6D Tape Pads, one supports the metabolism and the fluid flow in the tissue.
Beginning treatment of scars and swelling after breast surgery
Treatment on the scar should be started no later than three weeks after the scar has formed or immediately after the surgical stitches have been removed. However, the scar should not yet be treated if breast cancer treatment has not yet been completed. In such a case, consult the attending physician first. The scar is treated according to instructions by mobilising the scar area directly. Swelling in the scar area should be treated earlier by activating the lymphatic flow around the scar. It is important to ensure that the scar is not moved, and the healing process is not disturbed. Treatment of older scars is also recommended because connective tissue is constantly forming in the body. Therefore, even a few years after the formation of the scar, it is possible to loosen scar adhesions and improve elasticity.
