We did some with ds, and the stupid doctor cut me...dh says he doesn't think I needed it. With dd, he refused to help me do it and I was too lazy, so I only did it a few times myself. I so totally thought I was tearing as she came out, but I only split a little skin on the inside where perineal massage wouldn't have helped anyways. My scar stayed intact. And the split healed fairly quickly until I split it open again moving funny, took a little longer to heal the second time, but still not bad. I suppose it makes a difference that my babies were 6 15 (ds) and 6 12 (dd).
