All surgeries, orthopedic, plastic / cosmetic all produce swelling to some extent because it is part of the body’s normal healing process. Some cosmetic surgeries, such as liposuction, tummy tucks, and BBL, disrupt the natural pathways taken by the lymphatic system because of the location of the surgery. Other regions of the body, such as the nose after rhinoplasty or a face lift produce swelling that can last for a long time—even up to one year. However, because of the extensive areas of disruption, tummy tucks and liposuction procedures are usually the cosmetic surgeries with the greatest amount of lymphatic swelling.
When the lymph drifts out into surrounding tissue after a surgical procedure which disrupts the normal lymphatic pathways, swelling is the result, . In the book "A Patient's Guide to Liposuction", Dr Schafer says "swelling is caused by an accumulation of excess fluid in the treated tissue". Swelling is normal, but if you are a proactive person who wants to get back to your normal life, there's no reason to just wait patiently until it subsides on its own. Take action to avoid the following side effects by getting Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage, (MLD).
THE BENEFITS OF MLD AFTER SURGERY:
Clearly, Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage is helpful in the prevention of excessive swelling and pain which will make your overall healing from cosmetic surgery much faster and more comfortable.
THE FOLLOWING SIDE EFFECTS OF SURGERY TYPICALLY OCCUR:
After any kind of surgery, the skin can build up adhesion's. These adhesion's are present in the process of scarring and are an unnatural form of bands which abnormally connects two or more surfaces of tissues and disturb the body functions. Such adhesion's may arise from surgical procedures, trauma, and radiations during the process of wound repair, These adhesion's are made up of cells and tissues. They can hinder organ movements and may block blood supply and nutrition to the organs, causing pain and decreasing organ functioning. Fibrosis won’t present itself until about 4 weeks post-surgery. It is not possible to acknowledge it as such prior to this point of time. Our therapist uses several tools and time tested methods to achieve the elimination of fibroid tissue.
