Post Surgical Lymphatic Massage 

Post-Surgical Massage

Because cosmetic surgeries have become so widely accepted across the U.S., many people forget that it is still a major undertaking for your body. There are many different kinds of plastic surgery, such as tummy tucks, breast lifts, liposuction, facelifts, and many more. One thing that can help to promote faster healing and smooth recovery is post-operative massage.

 

Among the benefits of post-operative massage therapy include:

  • Improvement in healing time.

  • Reduced inflammation and minimization of soreness or pain.

  • Prevention of subcutaneous fibrosis .

  • Prevention of capsular contracture after breast augmentation.

  • Minimization of bruising.

After plastic or cosmetic surgery, the body is susceptible to physical pain in the underlying tissue, joints, and muscles. Post-operative massage therapy can be beneficial to speed up the recovery process, while reducing inflammation and minimizing soreness or pain after surgery. There are several different types of postsurgical massage, depending on your cosmetic procedure.

Post-operative Lymphatic Massage

You already may be familiar with massages, which are manipulations done by a professional who uses their hands for therapeutic purpose. After two or three weeks of any kind of surgery, an individual may build up liquid that may harden and result in fibrosis. 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; with fewer scars.

Your lymphatic system is an essential part of your immune system, so if it is not functioning adequately then it may lead to other more serious health problems. Postsurgical massage releases inflamed muscles and tissues in the areas that the procedure has been performed by alleviating accumulated liquid. People need to be aware of the benefits of a postoperative lymphatic massage after an esthetic surgery towards the greatest result.
