Are you preparing for liposuction or an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)? Dr. Tehrani may prescribe a healing treatment known as lymphatic massage to help you during your recovery. This is a powerful complement to many plastic surgeries, but is especially useful to patients after certain body contouring procedures (like liposuction and tummy tucks). Ask us if lymphatic massage could help speed your recovery.
What Is Lymphatic Massage?
Lymphatic massage is a type of gentle massage that encourages blood flow and lymph drainage. This can ease swelling, bruising, and discomfort after surgery. It is especially useful after surgeries in which fluid tends to gather. This fluid accumulation under the skin can harden. The resulting fibrosis can lead to increased bruising and swelling. Lymphatic massage helps the body to release this fluid and aids in detoxification. It is a powerful post-surgery tool to help you feel better sooner.
Why Do I Need Lymphatic Massage After Surgery?
Your body’s lymphatic system helps the body to process waste and move fluids. This system may become blocked or damaged post-surgery, causing the fluid to collect. Lymphatic massage helps keep things moving, giving your body the extra help it needs to process waste and fluid effectively after surgery—when you need it most. Our patients have found that this treatment can speed healing, decrease anxiety and stress, ease discomfort, and prevent and break up scar tissue. It can also boost immune function, which is essential in the days right after surgery. Many patients find the massage to be an enjoyable healing experience.
Wouldn’t a Regular Massage Have the Same Benefits?
When it comes to post-surgical healing, all massages aren’t the same. You need a specific type of massage known as lymphatic massage to achieve the optimal results for post-surgical healing. Our massage therapists are specially trained in this technique and will customize your treatment to your specific needs to aid in your recovery. These gentle massages typically last 30-60 minutes.
Do I Need Lymphatic Massage?
If you’re interested in lymphatic massage, ask us if the treatment could benefit you. It is beneficial after most surgical procedures, but is highly recommended after tummy tucks and liposuction treatments. Dr. Tehrani can help you determine how many massage sessions will be needed for optimal results.
