Aftercare treatments are very critical for a client‘s quick recovery and best results from liposuction. Furthermore right aftercare by well qualified and experienced therapists prevent complications from the surgery such as excessive swelling, pain, scar tissue formation/ nodules and lumps, and restriction of movement due to adhesion in connective tissue.
Holistic Face & Body Care in Cupertino offers Manual Lymph Drainage for post-liposuction care. The recommended treatments differ depending on the timeline after surgery. Here is a short list:
Day 3-21: Focusing on pain, swelling and tissue healing. During the first 2-3 weeks post-lipo aftercare treatments should initially be gentle and progressively become stronger and aim to minimise pain and swelling and prevent excessive scar tissue from forming. Dr. Vodder Method of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is needed in the first few days or as soon as possible after any liposuction surgery. A firmer massage - but not too strong - must be applied from the second week onwards.
Day 21-56: Focusing on scar tissue breakdown and cellulite reduction. From the third week onwards treatment can become progressively more vigorous: stronger lymphatic stimulation massage is preferred to the light touch MLD used the first three weeks. In addition to reducing water retention, stronger massage also helps with the breakdown of scar tissue / hard bumps that typically form after lipo surgery and uncouple skin stuck on underlying tissue and increase range of movement.
Day 56+: After about 8 weeks you can start having a strong radiofrequency / ultrasound / suction treatment to more effectively break down leftover fat and cellulite and tighten up the skin.
