Abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen thinner and more firm. The surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscle and fascia of the abdominal wall. “Wikipedia”
We had client that had a mini tummy tuck over her more than 30 years C Section and placed where her underwear could cover it. We treated her with Microcurrent Point Stimulation to minimize the scars visibility and reduce adhesions underneath the stichting. Here she’s at her 1st and 5th treatment of MPS Scar and Pain Therapy along with lymphatic drainage therapy with the Lymphstar Pro equipment.
Following a tummy tuck, many people undergo the post-surgical effects of Lymphedema, that is swelling and bruising. The body’s normal response to trauma as a surgery is, is to produce fluids to protect itself. Most of the time this fluid is the lymph fluids from the vessels that were cutoff during the surgery. With lymphatic drainage therapy, your massage therapist is manually assisting the body to continue the normal process of flushing the fluids from the surgical area. It is recommended that a minimum of 6 to maybe 10 sessions be done to reduce the discomfort, the pain, and prevent seromas from forming.
