Two Highly Recommended Treatments for Post-Operative Care After Plastic Surgery
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)
Also known as MLD, this massage technique is increasingly used to help reduce swelling, pain, bruising and infection for patients following cosmetic procedures and is a great path for cosmetic surgery post op care and recovery. During the session, excess fluid is drained from the body as pressure is applied. The benefits of this type of massage are plenty; it even helps to improve the overall functioning of the immune system. Patients are guaranteed to feel relaxed after this extremely gentle but effective massage technique.
Endermologie is great for patients before and after liposuction surgery and is a recommended post-operative care after plastic surgery. Endermologie helps facilitate the healing process by increasing circulation, smoothing lumpy connective tissues, toning and firming skin while flushing toxins and excess fluid in the lymphatic system and connective tissues.
