Our post-surgical massage sessions are designed to speed the healing process and help you return to your normal daily activities more quickly, while also improving the results of your cosmetic surgery. After undergoing a cosmetic surgery or procedure, we’re all eager to heal and get back to our normal routines as quickly as possible without compromising results. Lymphatic Drainage Massages help us do just that. The science behind why this type of massage works is fairly simple. A Lymphatic Massage helps to activate the lymphatic system movement and thus cause the elimination of fluids and toxins faster.
What Is the Lymphatic System?The lymphatic system is composed of a series of lymphatics (a vessel, similar to a vein, that conveys lymph in the body) that run throughout the body and lead back to larger lymph nodes. The job of the lymphatic system is to rid the body of toxins, waste, and unwanted materials, in addition to transporting lymph — a fluid containing white blood cells — throughout the body to help fight infection. Stroking the areas of the body that process the lymph fluid, and the lymph nodes, causes the fluid to drain.
Benefits of a Post-Op Lymphatic MassageAfter 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. The massage technique helps to reduce swelling and improve aesthetic results by decreasing congestion of the tissue. In short, Lymphatic Drainage Massages promote:
- Fast recovery and reduced bruising from plastic surgery
- Strengthened immune system
- Increased overall relaxation by decreasing stress
- Glowing, healthy-looking skin
- Reduction of cellulite
- Stimulated collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production
- Stimulated natural lipolysis
- Improved flexibility
- Reduced physical signs and symptoms (such as erythema, induration, pain, muscle tensions, stiffness, soreness, etc.)
