Cosmetic surgeries all produce swelling as it is part of the body’s normal healing process. Liposuction and tummy tucks can disrupt the natural pathways taken by the lymphatic system due to the surgery location. This can cause a build up of fluids (or swelling). Some patients experience lumpiness to the areas affected with liposuction, which is normal for most patients after surgery. The lumpiness is caused by trauma from the surgical instrument that is used under the skin to extract fatty tissue. The tunnels which are created by the surgical instrument can fill with fluid and left-over fat and become swollen. This fluid and left-over fat tends to begin to harden 1-3 weeks after surgery; however, Lymphatic Massage can help combat against this!
Lymphatic Massage moves the fluid by gently pushing back into the lymph passages. 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! Doctors will advise their patients that, without massage, there is a risk that the swelling and inflammation could turn into fibrosis, which is a permanent hardening of the area. Lymphatic Massage ensures you’ll achieve the best results possible from your procedure!
What is Lymphatic Massage, and how soon/often should I get it?
Lymphatic Massage is a specialized massage technique that is recommended by plastic surgeons, after liposuction, to accelerate the recuperation period. 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, half hour Lymphatic Massages once weekly are often sufficient. The science behind why this massage works is fairly simple. Stroking the areas of the body that process the lymph fluid, and the lymph nodes, causes the fluid to drain. Below is a link to a video example of some Lymphatic Massage techniques:
***Lymphatic Massage is NOT Lymphatic Drainage. We do not drain any fluids nor touch any incision site. We simply massage the excess fluid back towards the lymph nodes; therefore, helping the fluid to circulate through the lymphatic system and reduce build-up and swelling.
