What is Plastic Surgery Recovery Massage?
It is a combination of modalities such as Manual lymphatic draining, scar tissue massage, cupping, vibration techniques and more. It should be part of your aftercare, ensuing receiving plastic surgery or reconstructive surgery. Many plastic surgeons tell you about Faja's, compression garments, and foams. Some are avid advocates of Manual Lymphatic Draining and some don't mention it. The world of Plastic Surgery Aftercare is very unregulated and you should be spending as much time finding a good aftercare provider and program as you do vetting and searching for the right plastic surgeon. MLD or Manual Lymphatic Draining is a massage modality developed in Europe to combat various illnesses including, but not limited to, colds, Lymphedema and more. It is one of the modalities we use in Post-op Recovery Massage, because it alleviates swelling, helps speed up the healing process and helps minimize the risk of fibrosis and scarring in underlying tissues. It also helps discomfort and the hardness that can occur after surgeries. Better skin healing makes for better looking scars. If fibrosis or scar tissue sets in, Scar Tissue Massage is used to help minimize scarring and make scars more flexible, help build collagen and make the scar pliable to give you more range of motion and flexible skin.
