Cosmetic Surgery Patients

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is an extremely gentle massage that increases the efficiency of the Lymphatic System. It is proven to be an effective treatment for pre and post-operative cosmetic surgery.

 

Boosting your Natural Healing Power

MLD is recommended pre and post-operative cosmetic surgery. Usually, 1 session of MLD is done pre-operative to prepare the tissue for the trauma of surgery.

 

Post-operative MLD can begin as soon as 24 hours after surgery. Depending on each individual 3-6 sessions* are usually enough to assist in the healing process, relieve discomfort from swelling and speed the healing of bruises. If a more aggressive regimen is desired, 12 sessions, closer together, is recommended.​ *MLD packages available
