After cosmetic surgery, the body is susceptible to physical pain in the underlying tissue, joints, and muscles. Postoperative lymphatic massage therapy can be beneficial to speed up the recovery process, while reducing inflammation and minimizing soreness or pain after surgery.

Contrary to what you might think, lymphatic massage is not a traditional massage like deep tissue, Swedish massage, or hot stone. It is a specific technique that is both specialized and advanced.
Gentle rotating, and pumping motions are used to gently move lymph fluid through your body.
Every surgery causes some sort of swelling. The buildup of fluids in your body and around the surgical incision area needs to be relieved and eliminated. To prevent that build up, doctors often recommend compression garments and lymphatic massage. As you receive the massage, toxin-carrying fluids are flushed from your body properly. If the liquid is not drained, you risk getting complications. Lymphatic drainage massage is necessary to help prevent this occurrence. Manual massage activates the lymph nodes and improves lymph flow throughout the patient’s body, which eliminates bruising, improves circulation, and ultimately helps the healing process.
Another common question is how many post-surgery massage treatments do I need? Typically, I recommend at least one or two treatments before your surgery. After surgery, that number changes based on the type of surgery you had and on the number of surgical areas and how the body is recovering. A minimum 10 massages are recommended.
