Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Office 347 652 4086
Cell 224 605 6458
After cosmetic surgeries like liposuction, tummy tucks, or fat transfers, the lymphatic channels are disrupted and take about two to three months to make new connections. Adding a series of lymphatic massages to a patient’s post-op care routines can benefit their recovery. The massage technique helps to reduce swelling and improve aesthetic results by decreasing congestion of the tissue.
