If you have recently had cosmetic surgery, Vaser lipo you may notice increased swelling, bruising and tenderness in the areas treated. Due to this you may not see any difference. This is where we can help with Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD).
MLD described as “One of the best kept secrets on the health and beauty scene”(Ref MLDuk), is a safe and gentle treatment. It will help with swelling, bruising, scaring and has an analgesic effect which helps to soothe. It is a very gentle, light touch massage that improves the efficiency of the lymphatic system-the body’s waste disposal system. Specific and gentle movements of the skin stimulate and increase the rate of removal of waste products, toxins and excess fluid from the body’s tissues. MLD is regularly prescribed in Europe to improve healing and reduce recovery time after cosmetic surgery.
To help the swelling, bruising and reduce and keep lumpiness to a minimum, book a course of MLD. You will need to wear compression hosiery as prescribed by your surgeon. We will give further written and verbal home care advice such as instruction on carrying out your own self massage to the areas treated, the importance of deep breathing exercises.
The number of MLD sessions you will need varies depending on areas treated-
- Arms: 3 sessions
- Abdomen: 5-10 sessions
- Flanks: 5-10 sessions
- Outer and inner thigh 3-5 sessions
- Chin and face : 3-5 sessions
- Vaser and Hi Def: may require 15 – 20 sessions
It may be beneficial to book an MLD treatment before your procedure to get your lymphatic system in peak condition. If you wish to call or email me ahead of time we can discuss your options. After your procedure we may be able to see you on the same day or as soon as you are comfortable to start treatment.
