WHY YOU NEED A LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE AFTER SURGERY
Lymphatic Massage is simply a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the body tissues.
After plastic surgery procedures like Brazilian Butt Lift, Liposuction and Fat Transfer, Tummy Tuck etc, Patients can experience swelling which tends to last for about 2 to 3 weeks. This swelling is part of the body’s normal healing process.
One of the ways to reduce this swelling and speed up the recovery process is with a lymphatic drainage massage…
So here are the FOUR major reasons why you need Lymphatic Drainage Massage if you intend to get a cosmetic procedure done.
It reduces swelling and fluid retention: One of the effects of cosmetic surgery (especially Body procedures, particularly tummy tucks and liposuction) is swelling. This is a normal inflammatory response of the body and a part of the healing process. Lymphatic Drainage ensures that the body maintains its proper blood circulation, body fluid balance, and immune functions.
It removes excess water and metabolic waste from the tissues in the body: This massage technique uses gentle strokes to massage excess fluid towards the lymphatic tissue, so that it is more quickly absorbed by the body. This not only helps to reduce swelling but also improves the aesthetic results of the procedure done.
It supports relaxation and relieves stress: Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle and light massage, it is the most relaxing and comfortable massage for patients especially after surgery. It can also help to relieve Pain.
Lymphatic Drainage promotes efficient healing from illness, injury, or surgery: .Apart from the soothing relief it offers, it additionally, promotes reduction in discomfort and swelling immediately after surgery. Although swelling is necessary for the healing process, too much swelling can cause pain and discomfort. Clearly, lymphatic drainage massage will help prevent excessive swelling and pain, which will make the overall healing from cosmetic surgery much faster and more comfortable.
We usually recommend a minimum of 6 sessions of Lymphatic Massage to be done after your cosmetic procedure. This is to commence a day after the procedure is done, and should run within the first two weeks of recovery.
