Post-op Manual Lymphatic Drainage
This treatment is a necessity after most plastic surgical procedure, especially after hi-definition liposuction, Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) or Tummy Tucks.
Whether you are going away or stay locally, you will be most likely advised to book a course of professional MLDs to enhance your recovery, ensure safe healing of your tissues and avoid formation of fibrosis.
WARNING! Although many massage therapists can be trained in a general MLD for wellbeing and detox, a post -op MLD should be performed by medically trained profession who will be able to advise and mitigate any complications.
– How many sessions will I need and how long?
Your doctor should give you a recommendation of how many sessions you should schedule and when. It is usually advised to get a course of 10-15 sessions immediately after the procedure but this depends on your body’s ability to heal. We offer convenient packages to accommodate your need.
Sessions are usually 45min long for one area and 60min for more areas. We may advise longer sessions if necessary.
– Is the treatment painful?
The treatment is very superficial due to the anatomical placement of your lymph vessels. Although you may be a bit tender and bruised at the beginning of your recovery process and you may be in discomfort, the treatment itself should not be painful at all.
