A post-operative massage is a gentle form of massage that increases blood flow and promotes recovery by targeting the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system helps process waste and absorbs fluids. After surgery, these fluids can harden, which is often painful. A post-operative massage prevents and treats this hardening of fluids by reducing inflammation and promoting circulation to the affected area.
The massages also serve as a tool to further promote the aesthetic you wish for yourself and aid in reducing things like scarring and discomfort.
It is ideal to receive at least one or two MLD treatments prior to a procedure. There are many different things that can influence healing. Some patients get 1-6 treatments post-operatively and that is enough, especially if the only area of liposuction was the legs, knees, or flanks. People getting liposuction to the abdomen often find they require up to 12 sessions. . Also, patients who get multiple procedures at the same time (lipo and a tummy tuck, or lipo and a buttock enhancement; Brazilian Butt Lift) may need more sessions than someone who only gets one procedure.
This treatment has been demonstrated to show positive results, even after just a couple of massage treatments! Most patients need 4 to 6 weeks worth of Lymphatic treatments to remove most of the excess fluid; however, most patients can expect relief even after the first treatment
Every patient is different, but most doctors advise their patients to begin their Lymphatic Massage treatment the 4th or 5th day after surgery to obtain the best, and fastest, results. A one hour Lymphatic Massage is recommended once or twice weekly during the first month of recovery. After the first month, one hour Lymphatic Massages once weekly are often sufficient.
After cosmetic surgeries like liposuction, tummy tucks, or arm, thigh, and Brazilian butt lifts, the lymphatic channels are disrupted and take about two to three months to make new connections. Plastic surgeons agree that adding a series of lymphatic massages to a patient’s post-op care routines can benefit their recovery.
