Lymphatic Drainage after Liposuction, Smart-lipo or other Cosmetic Surgery

Lymphatic Drainage after liposuction, Smart-lipo, or other procedures such as the fat injections for the Brazilian Butt Lift will help reduce or prevent hardness or lumpiness to the areas treated. Post surgical lymph edema is caused by inflammation and trauma from the cannula (the instrument that sucks out the fat), moving under the skin. Channels are formed by the cannula that can fill up with fluid and the tissue also becomes swollen. Manual Lymphatic Drainage helps to move the fluid by gently pumping it back into the lymph vessels. Without Manual Lymphatic Drainage the inflammation can evolve into fibrosis (permanent hardening of the tissue) or a seroma (pocket of serum) can form. Manual Lymphatic Drainage will help patients get the best possible results. Manual Lymphatic Drainage therapy reduces healing time for bruises by cleansing the intercellular spaces where old blood cells and waste products accumulate.
