One of the biggest mistakes often made with cosmetic surgery procedures is failure to plan enough recovery time. It is important to spend time investigating the best methods to enhance recovery so that one may return to normal activities as soon as possible and enjoy the best possible results. Lymphatic Drainage Massage can be applied both pre-operatively to prepare the tissue and post-operatively to relieve discomfort and remove cellular debris resulting from the trauma of the procedure.
Clients may experience discomfort, swelling and bruising after surgery and have few options to handle these uncomfortable symptoms. Lymphatic vessels are traumatized, and the flow of lymph is interrupted by surgery contributing to reduced healing, fibrosis (scar tissue), dimpled, uneven skin and the possibility of developing seromas (pockets of serous fluid). Decongestion of the lymphatic system overloaded by the insult of surgery can assist the return to normal texture, definition and tone of the skin. When multiple procedures are performed simultaneously, receiving Lymphatic Drainage Massage can reduce discomfort of swelling and speed the dissipation of the discoloration of bruising.
Our clients say the best feature of Lymphatic Drainage Massage is that it is gentle, painless and relaxing making the post-operative recovery period as pleasant as possible.
I wasn’t a believer at first. Because the touch was so light. Then I could feel the release and tingling in my legs and arms. The next day after the session all my bruising was gone. It was amazing!”
