Why do I need Lymph Drainage Therapy after my liposuction, Smart-lipo or other cosmetic surgery procedure?
You many 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) This is normal right after your procedure. This post-surgical lymphedema is caused by inflammation and trauma from the cannula (instrument that sucks out the fat) moving under the skin. Channels are formed by the cannula that can fill up with fluid and the tissue also becomes swollen. Manual Lymph Massage helps to move the fluid by gently pumping it back into the lymph vessels. Reducing the swelling can reduce discomfort. Without Lymph Massage (LDT or MLD) the inflammation can evolve into fibrosis (a permanent hardening of the tissue) or a seroma ( pocket of serum) can form. Many doctors prescribe Lymph Drainage Therapy after liposuction to make sure their patients get the best possible results from their procedure.
Protect Your Results
At Beautiful You we provide customers with post lipo care services that are essential to maximizing the best results from their surgical procedure. One of the easiest and best ways is by Lymphatic Draining Massage (LDM). LDM is a natural and highly reliable method for delivering a much less painful and significantly shorter recuperation time by exactly flushing the lymphatic fluid which has been produced in massive quantities after the liposuction, out of the body. The end goal of this technique is to purify the patient’s body as well as to lessen the edema after a lipo surgery. Our services are overseen by a Registered Nurse that is passionate about our customers achieving their overall image and health goals.
