Plastic surgeons recommend that their patients receive anywhere from 5 to 15 lymph drainage sessions after surgery or Lipo. But I work with you individually to decide what is best for you and your recovery.
First time session includes consultation
(up to 90 minutes) ... $130
60 minute massage … $105
75 minute massage … $120
90 minute massage … $140
Why Lymph Drainage for Post-Surgery and Liposuction?
- Heal in less time
- Reduce scars
- Quickly decrease swelling due to the trauma of surgery and Lipo
- Less pain, discomfort and bruising
- Less fibrosis (hard areas), lumps and dimply skin
- Help to move pockets of fluid
- Help decrease risk of seromas
Quicker recovery after:
- knee surgery
- breast augmentation or breast reduction
- breast reconstruction
- abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
Ideally, patients should have an MLD treatment 24 to 48 hours before surgery. The treatment will prepare the skin tissue by encouraging your lymphatic system to be working at its optimal level. And then resume MLD treatment after surgery.
Sure, It’s easy to find someone to do ‘lymph massage’ for half of what I charge … someone who will tell you that you need a preset number of sessions, someone who will use a lot of pressure to ‘push the fluid and break up the hard spots’. Yes, ouch!!!
