Post Surgery and Post-Op Treatment
How Does Lymphatic Drainage Work?
Lymphatic drainage is a light massage to the lymph nodes that helps to pump the lymph fluid through your lymphatic system. Sometimes the lymph’s can get blocked and through light strokes your therapist will unblock them.
The excess of lymphatic fluids in our bodies creates inflammation and pain. Through lymphatic drainage I will boost your lymphatic system to expulse the excess of fluid acquired after the surgery; helping you detoxify and reenergized naturally.
After a plastic surgery our bodies are sore. The excess of liquid between the skin and the muscle operated creates inflammation, pain, painful lumps/ seromas and skin hardening. Through lymphatic drainage and post-operative massage, I will help your system drain through urine or through the incision if it is still open.
A seroma is a collection of fluid build up under the skin. After a plastic surgery is normal to develop seromas or skin hardening. These after effects are common and not always develop right away after the plastic surgery. With time seromas can become chronic but they can be treated.
