LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that usually creates pooling of excess lymphatic fluids. This results in swelling and discomfort for the patient.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a specialized massage technique that is recommended by plastic surgeons, after liposuction, to accelerate the recuperation period.. The science behind why this massage works is fairly simple. Stroking the areas of the body that process the lymph fluid, and the lymph nodes, causes the fluid to drain.
This massage procedure works well and has been demonstrated to show positive results after only a couple of treatments! However, most patients need 4 to 6 treatments to remove most of the excess fluid. Patients can expect noticeable relief from swelling after the 6th treatment.
