Lymphatic Massage

Lymphatic massage is frequently recommended by cosmetic surgeons during the recovery phase following liposuction. This specialized form of massage can help decrease recovery time and improve results. The treatment works by reducing post-surgical swelling and reducing the chance for fibrosis and scar tissue formation

Frequently Asked Questions

During the period immediately following liposuction, surgery patients will experience swelling and bruising. This is the ideal time frame to start your lymphatic massage. Lymphatic massage can be done as soon as 48 hours after liposuction and can be continued for 4-6 weeks depending on your recovery. If you have had a procedure with a long incision, such as tummy tuck, lymphatic massage should not be started without approval from your surgeon.

The circulatory system (arteries and veins) and the lymphatic system (lymph vessels and nodes) work together to maintain a healthy fluid balance in the body. After liposuction, swelling and bruising can result in disruption of this system. Using gentle pressure, this procedure helps to stimulate the flow of fluid to the lymphatic system, thereby reducing swelling and reestablishing the body’s fluid balance. Proper fluid balance can help avoid poor aesthetic outcomes and shorten recovery times.

This procedure is offered by registered massage therapists who have received additional training and are certified by the state board.
