Plastic Surgery Recovery

During plastic surgery our lymphatic system gets compromised and slows down.  By opening up the major lymph node we get the lymph flowing through the body which begins the healing process.  Our lymphatic System works very closely to our immune system which helps to fight infection and disease.

Post surgical lymphatic massage typically should be done 7-10 days after surgery and continued for 4-6 consecutive weeks with at least two sessions per week.  Depending on the individual and type of surgery, pain tolerance and skin type, more sessions may be required to create a true recovery from the surgery.

Lymphatic massage is essential and beneficial to the recovery process after any type of plastic surgery.

  • Abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck)
  • Liposuction (Abs, back, flanks, arms, legs)
  • Breast lifts/augmentation
  • Face lift
  • Gynecomastia (excess breast tissue in men)

Benefits from lymphatic massage or lymph drainage therapy

  • Drains operative fluids
  • Decreases scar tissue and minimizes scar formation
  • Increases blood flow and speeds up healing process
  • Reduces pain, inflammation and bruising
  • Creates smoother skin

Most common mistakes patients make:

  • Patients do not get all the 10-15 lymphatic massages required
  • Do not wear the correct compression garment
  • Are not compliant with wearing their compression garment
  • Do not wear the ab board with liposuction of abdominal wall
  • Impatient with the healing process
  • Are not educated or told of the true expectations and discomfort of their recovery
