Surgery or not, your body can go through a lot of stress, which can impair it from healing properly. This is one of the reasons doctors recommend several sessions of lymphatic drainage massage.
What are the benefits of lymphatic drainage massage?
- Boosts the immune system.
- Eases pain.
- Reduces swelling.
- Promotes skin regeneration.
- Reduces insomnia and stress.
Since lymphatic drainage massage improves tissue regeneration, many doctors recommend it to aid the process of healing and scarring. Another benefit is these massages can prevent and heal swelling, making the healing process less painful and less likely to infection.
Upon your surgeon’s recommendations, you can start treatment as early as 24 hours after surgery.
