After Dr. Harrell has finished removing excess fat from your body with a liposuction procedure, you still have some time before you can enjoy the final results. Because of the swelling that occurs in surgical areas immediately after liposuction, any improvements you notice right away are just the beginning. Once the extra fluid has drained and the swelling has gone down completely, you will be able to admire your new look.
Recovery is a long process, but there are things you can do to speed up the process and improve your results at the same time. One such thing is lymphatic massage. One side effect of surgery is that your lymph nodes tend to swell and fill with fluid. A lymphatic massage allows you to drain the fluid that accumulates, which helps your body return to its normal state faster.
Lymphatic massage treatments:
- Limit the risk of pronounced scarring
- Reduce the time for swelling to go down
- Minimize post-operative bruising
- Enable patients to make a smoother full recovery
- Can speed up healing
- Can reduce stress
- Increase patients' blood flow
At the Weston Surgery Center, Dr. Harrell recommends lymphatic massage treatments following any liposuction procedure. If you live in Miami, Ft.
