Lymphatic Massage (Lymphatic Drainage) is ideal for a full and effective recovery after any type of surgery and especially Liposuction. Your physician will recommend starting with this type of massage shortly after the date of the surgery, taking into account your general condition.

The Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage main objective is to eliminate fluids and toxins that stagnate due to the rupture of lymphatic vessels in the area of the surgery and that cannot be eliminated by the circulatory system because of its large size and quantity.

The lymphatic massage (lymphatic drainage massage) can be manual or assisted by your therapist and may involves maneuvering and slow movements in and nearby the affected areas. Maneuvers and movements are usually painless according to the patient’s condition.
