post op lymphatic massage

After undergoing a surgery, we all wait eagerly to heal and get back to our normal routines as quickly as possible without compromising the results.

The facts have shown that it is not just light exercise, adequate rest, and a healthy diet that are beneficial for recovery. In fact, spa staples likely have a place in your healing process because they can reduce swelling, promote healing, and improve results. What is it you ask? Manual lymphatic drainage massage and here are the reasons why.

What is the Lymphatic System?

The lymphatic system consists of a series of lymphatic vessels (pronounced: channels) that are distributed throughout the body and lead to larger lymph nodes. The role of the lymphatic system is to remove toxins, waste, and unwanted substances from the body, and to transport them to lymph nodes (a liquid containing white blood cells) throughout the body to help fight infection.

What is the Lymphatic Drainage Massage? And how does it help?

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a professional massage technique recommended after a surgery to speed up the recovery period.

After cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift and Brazilian butt lift, the lymphatic vessels are interrupted and it takes two to three months to establish a new connection. Plastic surgeons agree that adding a series of lymphatic massages to patients’ post-operative care procedures will help them recover.

Lymphatic massage stimulates the lymph nodes that drain the lymphatic fluid. This massage is very effective and has shown positive effects in a large number of patients. We recommend that patients receive at least 10 to 15 Lymphatic Drainage Massages for best results.

Some patients will develop lumps or hardening in the affected area from liposuction, which is normal for most patients after surgery. The lumps or stiffness are caused by inflammation and trauma from the surgical instruments used to remove fatty tissue under the skin. The tunnels and channels formed by the surgical instruments will fill with fluid and swell due to the remaining fluid and fat. This fluid and the remaining fat begin to harden between one and three weeks after the operation. The Lymphatic Drainage massage will help move the fluid by gently pushing it into the lymphatic channels. It also helps to get rid of bruises because they are cellular debris and release trapped substances.

What are the benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

  • Benefits Recovery
  • Reduces Swelling
  • Decreases Congestion of the tissue

    I want to thank you for the great effort and expertise that you put in the hair transplant procedure which you did on me. You have fixed a big cut from a previous, very bad hair transplant in Jordan. It kept me very nervous and uncomfortable for very long time. Now, after conducting this surgery by you, I feel very very happy because the cut is almost gone. I like your personality and professionalism. I am really glad that I made a decision to come to Dubai and conduct the surgery at Cocoona Clinic Thank you very much.
