The Importance of Manual Lymphatic Drainage After Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

After undergoing a surgical procedure, it's crucial to take proper care of your body and ensure that you're taking all the necessary steps for a speedy recovery. One important aspect of post-surgical care is lymphatic massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage. This type of massage is designed to improve the flow of lymph fluids throughout your body and enhance the overall functioning of your lymphatic system.

According to studies, manual lymphatic drainage massage can aid in the repair process by decreasing edema and improving local nutrition and removal of waste products in the affected area. In addition, lymphatic massage can help to smooth out any scar tissues or fibrosis that is in development after the initial 15 days of recovery. The first 2 weeks after surgery are the most crucial to your recovery. It is recommended to receive one massage every day for the first week, then every other day the following week. Keep in mind that everyone's recovery process is different, but that is the bare minimum that we recommend for the best results.
