Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy and Cosmetic Surgery

MLD is regularly prescribed in Europe to improve healing and reduce recovery time after cosmetic surgery. Treatment pre and post surgery is often recommended to get the lymphatic system in peak condition and to help reduce the swelling and bruising, and to keep it operating at optimum level to accelerate the healing process, encourage an improved scar formation and ultimately reveal the new you in less time.

A sample of the most popular procedures opted for by men and women include:

  • Vaso-Lipo
  • Breast augmentation
  • Eyelid, face and neck lifts
  • Liposuction
  • Rhinoplasty

Pre-surgery

One to three sessions are recommended, depending upon the type of surgery. 

Manual lymphatic drainage can lead to healthier body tissues and therefore a stronger immune system as well as a heightened state of relaxation.

Post-surgery

Manual Lymphatic Drainage can commence approximatley 24-hours after surgery.

Recommendation is six to ten treatments, depending on the surgical procedure, at least three within the first week which can help to :-

  • alleviate bruising and swellings
  • reduce inflammation and the appearance of scars
  • reduce pain
  • stimulate the immune system and helps prevent post-surgical infections      

The time it takes for the skin to recover will vary from person to person due to many factors such as age, general health, lifestyle etc; however, a course of MLD treatment can make the healing process faster.
