Post Surgical Massage

Post Surgical Massage

We encourage all liposuction patients to get the lymphatic massages you will avoid lumps, bumps, pain and swelling in the immediate post-operative period. During the procedure, the liposuction cannula is passed through the subcutaneous tissue. This causes disruption of the lymphatic channels and cellular injury, which causes swelling and mild contour irregularity.

Significant improvement in swelling can be seen in the first three weeks following surgery, with the majority gone in about three months.Small amounts of swelling may persist up to a year following surgery.

We stonrgly recommend the use of compression garments following surgery. Massages are extremely helpful. They decreases swelling by mobilizing retained fluid following liposuction.It also helps with minor contour irregularities.
