Pre Cosmetic Surgery

Research has proven MLD is highly recommended for pre and post-cosmetic surgery.  

MLD prepares the lymphatic system for surgery by ensuring that the lymph is flowing effectively and softening any tissue that may have harden.

Benefits:

  • Prepares tissue for surgery
  • Alleviates oedema
  • Detoxifies tissue
  • Stimulates the immune system

Post Cosmetic Surgery

The most common side effects of cosmetic surgery are swelling. This is a normal inflammatory response and a part of the healing process as fluid rushes to the area to nourish it with white blood cells. Body procedures, particularly tummy tucks and liposuction, often cause additional swelling as excess fluid and fat cells will harden within a few weeks of surgery.

Lymphatic drainage helps to move the fluid that’s built up and allows it to move back into lymphatic passages where excess waste and fluid can be flushed from the body. This prevents fibrosis, which is the development of thick, fibrosis scar tissue under the skin as well as reduces swelling and bruising. Research has proven Manual Lymphatic Drainage is highly recommended after surgery to help achieve the best possible results after a cosmetic procedure.

  • Prevents infection
  • Reduces Swelling, bruising and inflammation
  • Relieves Pain
  • Accelerates the regeneration of tissues & cells
  • Fat residues are rapidly absorbed and processed by the lymphatic system
  • Tissues quality is improved, and better visible results are achieved
  • Healing process is accelerated – without MLD longer recovery time
  • Scarring and build up nodules are significantly reduced
