Lymphatic drainage massages accomplish goals!
Post-op massage enhances the outcome of surgery, accelerates the healing process, and helps ease pain and stiffness.
“Do I REALLY need post-surgical lymphatic drainage massage?”
Absolutely. The purpose of these massages is to eliminate the excess fluid which accumulates, before it hardens and becomes fibrosis.
Simply put, having post-surgical massages compliments the beautiful work done by the surgeon.

Swelling After Plastic Surgery
Swelling, bruising, and pain are a normal part of the recovery process. The swelling is due to the trauma from surgical equipment movement, the body’s natural response of inflammation to activate the healing process.
The collection of fluid is the body’s immune response to heal the damage done during surgery. The lymphatic system acts like a sewer in that it carries out the waste by product through the blood stream, making it a key component of the circulatory and immune systems.
After surgery, fluid collects everywhere, not just in the treated areas. Any person that submits themselves to a cosmetic surgical procedure will experience some degree of inflammation as a side-effect of the work performed in that area. The process of lymphatic drainage allows for your body the release that liquid accumulated under the skin and in turn your healing time reduces and pain diminishes.
Lymphatic massages help speed up the elimination of excess fluid. By encouraging blood flow and circulation, lymphatic massages can help preserve a higher percentage of the transplanted fat while simultaneously supporting the lymphatic system which transports toxins and excess liquid out of the body.
Performed by an expert, these soothing massages reduce water retention, swelling, scar tissue, seroma, fibrosis and pain, after just the first treatment!
Post-op massage can enhance the outcome of a procedure and accelerate the healing process all while keeping the patient comfortable and the treated area safe.
