Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Post-op lymphatic drainage massage
A lymphatic drainage massage manipulates certain areas of your body to move the fluids to your lymph nodes. In turn, the nodes shift these fluids to the lymph vessels. As our therapist applies light pressure on your body, these fluids that contain antibodies and white blood cells help to fight infection and swelling by improving lymphatic flow.
Our experienced therapists work with patients who have recently had cosmetic surgery. They are gentle and knowledgeable on all aspects of post-op lymphatic massage, offering the best possible experience for anyone who needs to heal and recuperate faster.
Best time to get a lymphatic drainage massage
After an aesthetic surgery, such as liposuction or tummy tuck, your body needs to recuperate and heal. Swelling is a common side effect of cosmetic surgery since the tissues and organs are bombarded by white blood cells and fluids that contain antibodies that help them heal. Unfortunately, the fluids collect on the arms and legs in most cases. Left untreated could lead to more severe problems, like fibrosis. A post-op lymphatic drainage massage targets this issue.
Our experienced therapists gently apply light pressure on your problem areas, move these fluids back into the lymph nodes, and ease swelling in your body. Our post-operative lymphatic drainage massage in Reseda will help you recuperate and heal faster if you’ve recently had cosmetic surgery.
What is the lymphatic system?
We must first discuss the lymphatic system to understand a lymphatic drainage massage. The lymphatic system is part of your immune system. It is a system of organs, vessels, and tissues that work together with the immune system to keep fluid levels in the body that support healthy blood circulation and immune function.
The system contains fluids containing proteins, fat cells, waste, and metabolized cells filtered through the lymph nodes. These nodes filter waste, resulting in a clean fluid circulating throughout the body.
Stress and illness can disrupt the lymphatic system, which means the fluids get retained in areas of your body, and waste also accumulates with these fluids. Aesthetic surgery can disrupt the system, cause swelling, and damage your overall health.
Our lymphatic drainage massage can help restore your lymphatic system’s health by pushing these fluids back to the lymph nodes for filtering.
How does a post-operative lymphatic massage work?
Post-operative lymphatic drainage massages work through a 2-step process:
This process involves removing the fluid from your facial areas, such as your head, face, and neck, to move it to the tissues.
Your therapist will then move the lymphatic fluids to your lymph nodes, which will go through the filtering system, removing waste products and toxins. After this, the therapist will apply more light pressure to move clean fluids to your problem areas.
Benefits of post-op massages
The lymphatic system is essential for healing, removing toxins from the body, and recuperating after an illness, injury, or surgery. A massage helps to restart your lymphatic system, helping your body become more efficient in healing.
Post-operative massages are essential after having cosmetic surgery. These massages are ideal after liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), or a lipectomy.
Here are the main benefits of our post-op massage in Reseda:
- Removes fluid build-up
- Improves skin quality
- Reduces scar formation
- Supports relaxation
- Relieves stress
- Reduces swelling and fluid retention
- Improves blood circulation
Patients typically need 4 to 5 sessions for complete treatment, but many report experiencing results after just one session. Aside from reducing swelling and the benefits mentioned above, lymphatic drainage massage is also known to improve overall health and well-being.
Are post-operative massages safe?
Yes, post-op lymphatic drainage massages are safe. However, patients with medical conditions such as kidney disease, heart problems, and blood clots are not ideal candidates for the treatment.
What to expect during the session
Our lymphatic drainage massage is similar to any regular massage wherein you get undressed and lie on a massage bed. A qualified and highly trained massage therapist will apply light pressure on your body, giving gentle, rhythmic movements to move fluids from your problem areas. Your therapist will follow lymphatic pathways to push fluids toward your lymph nodes.
Depending on your needs, a session takes anywhere between 30 to 45 minutes. It is a slow process and will most likely induce deep and relaxed sleep. Some patients only need one session for minor issues. In contrast, others would need at least five sessions to experience full benefits.
