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.
