POST SURGICAL MASSAGE A MUST FOR GREAT RESULTS
After the a plastic surgery procedure you may notice a hardness or lumpiness to the areas treated with liposuction or Smart-lipo, especially in the abdominal area and even more so if combined with other body contouring procedures (such as fat injections for what is popularly known as the (Brazilian Butt Lift)
It is expected that you experience and see all this after your procedure. The post-surgical swelling is caused by inflammation and trauma from the cannula (instrument that sucks out the fat) moving under the skin. Channels are created by the cannula that can fill up with fluid and the making the tissue also get swollen.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage helps to move the fluid by gently pumping it back into the lymph vessels. The discomfort reduces as the swelling goes down too, this allows quicker healing to the area and overall.
If the inflammation is untreated it can convert into fibrosis (a permanent hardening of the tissue) or a seroma ( pocket of serum) can form. Much more doctors are recommending Lymphatic Drainage Therapy after liposuction to make sure their patients get the best possible results from their procedure. It is great for reducing the visibility of scars from breast reduction, breast lift, tummy tuck or any incision done during any type of surgery.
Lymphatic drainage can help patients heal after surgery by reducing swelling and detoxifying the body. It can help improve the immune system by removing blockages preventing the flow of lymphatic materials.
With our post-surgical massage we also include other than the lymphatic drainage massage, microcurrent scar & pain release therapy which helps brake down adhesions created by the cannula, laser procedure.

The fluids are drained without opening any incision, by the natural process of urine, bowel movement, sweat and body absorption.
Now, we have also incorporated to make the treatment even much smoother the Crystal LymphWaves Laser. This is a safe frequency that can break down without any added trauma the congested, or stubborn lymph post-surgical clients are experiencing.
**We do not treat patients with drains still on, or perform opening of any incision for the body to flush, this is very dangerous and the Department of Health in Florida frowns greatly on this practice, since this can only be performed by a licensed medical doctor, not a licensed massage therapist.

Plastic surgeries all produce swelling to some extent because it is part of the body’s normal healing process. Some plastic surgeries, such as liposuction procedures and tummy tucks, disrupt the natural pathways taken by the lymphatic system because of the location of the surgery. Other regions of the body, such as the nose after rhinoplasty, produce swelling that can last for a long time—even up to one year. Other cosmetic procedures that impact the face can also produce months of swelling. Because of the extensive areas of disruption, tummy tucks and liposuction procedures are usually the cosmetic surgeries with the greatest amount of lymphatic swelling.
Because every patient is different; in effect, we know that most doctors advise their patients to begin their Lymphatic Drainage massage treatment after the 4th or 5th day after surgery to obtain the best, and fastest, results. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to encourage the muscle tissue toward greater pliability, so you can really benefit from the work in those critical first few weeks after surgery.
We recommend six treatments for post-surgical because it is often enough, if the only area of liposuction was the legs, knees or flanks or breast augmentation.
For the client that gets liposuction to the abdomen and/or abdominoplasty require up to 12 sessions.
In some cases a client will need more than 12, if they had multiple procedures at the same time and depending on the body's response.
