Once your body has gone through the effects of anesthesia, and the effects of the liposuction be prepared for the way the area treated will feel. Keep in mind, you’ll feel pain after the procedure. Recovery can also be painful. Depending on what parts of the body require liposuction, you may have a shorter or longer hospital stay. … It’s common to have pain, swelling, bruising, soreness, and numbness after liposuction. It is recommended that you get yourself treated with lymphatic drainage massage once drains are removed to facilitate the flushing of remaining fluid the body needs assistance to move from the area. With any surgery the lymph vessels are cut off and the lack of connection keeps the body swollen, because the process has been disrupted.
This particular client came in a week after liposuction of her arms, sides, under chin and mini tummy tuck by Dr Dev Vibhakar at Aqua Plastic Surgery. Her healing and pain reduction was achieved once we started with two treatments a week and we recommended for at least 10 if not 12 sessions. We customized her treatment with MPS which is the microcurrent point stimulation following the Acupuncture protocol for relaxation, lymphatic drainage and scar release before applying the lymphatic drainage therapy with the Lymphstar Pro Fusion equipment to breakdown the stagnation of the lymph fluid causing the swelling, and formation of lumps. We completed the treatment with manual massage with some Botanist’s Body Lotion prepared by Pink Horizons Botanical Skin Care that developed a lotion specifically for inflammation reduction.
