Post Surgery Massage: Key Techniques 

Adding a massage after surgery to your recovery plan is the best decision to facilitate healing and promote overall well-being. In post-surgical rehab, the primary techniques include:

  • Lymphatic drainage massage stimulates the lymphatic system to exclude excess fluid and reduce swelling in the affected area.

  • Deep tissue massage releases tension in the soft tissues surrounding the surgical site, improves blood circulation, and accelerates healing.

At BESO Aesthetics, our skilled massage therapists specialize in lymphatic massage techniques, including manual lymphatic drainage, and are here to take care of your post-surgery needs.

Thorough massage reduces acute pain and discomfort and minimizes scar tissue formation, supporting a smoother recovery process. By increasing lymphatic flow and promoting circulation, our massages reduce inflammation and the body’s natural healing process.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Lymphatic drainage massage is a specialized technique supporting the body's natural healing processes after surgery. A skilled therapist performs an in-depth analysis to prepare for the massage.

During the post-op lymphatic massage session, gentle and rhythmic movements stimulate the lymphatic system, promoting the flow of lymphatic fluid and increasing blood flow. This helps remove excess fluid and reduce swelling, boosting a quicker recovery process.

The massage therapist pays close attention to lymph nodes, as they accumulate toxins and waste products, particularly after surgical procedures. By targeting these areas, lymphatic drainage massages support immune function and promote skin quality, minimizing scar tissue formation and improving overall health.

Throughout the session, the therapist employs techniques such as manual lymphatic drainage and carefully navigating incision sites and sensitive areas. These gentle moves provide pain relief, encourage accelerated healing, and reduce the risk of complications.

As the massage increases lymphatic flow and blood flow circulation, patients often experience reduced stress and inflammation, allowing for a smoother recovery journey.

By adding lymphatic drainage massage into your post-operative care plan, you're taking a massive step towards faster recovery and your opportunity to return to everyday life with confidence and vitality.

Deep Tissue Massage After Surgery

Connective tissue massage can be beneficial after cosmetic surgery. It's a massage that goes deep into your muscles and tissues, done by a professional massage therapist who understands your body's needs.

This kind of massage is excellent for reducing tightness and improving blood flow. Especially after plastic surgery, it can help prevent from forming too much scar tissue and keep your lymphatic system working well, which is important for post-operative recovery and reducing swelling.

Even if general surgery can be uncomfortable, this gentle massage can make you feel better and help you feel normal again. Plus, it helps your muscles work better and makes you feel less stressed.

So, as you recover from your surgical procedure, know that deep tissue or lymphatic massages can help you heal faster, feel better, and get back to your normal self as soon as possible.

Lymphatic System and Its Role in Post-Op Massage Treatment

The body’s lymphatic system serves as the body’s drainage network, removing toxins, waste products, and excess fluid from tissues. The lymphatic system may become compromised following surgery, resulting in swelling, discomfort, and delayed healing.

Lymphatic drainage massage and manual lymphatic drainage are key treatments here. These gentle, rhythmic movements stimulate lymph flow, helping to remove built-up fluid and promote healing. By using the lymphatic system’s power, post-surgery massage becomes an excellent choice for patients wanting an easier recovery.

Possible Risks Post-surgery Without a Lymphatic Massage

Without lymphatic massage during post-surgery recovery, individuals face potential risks. The lymphatic system removes excess fluids, toxins, and waste after surgery, especially when swelling and fluid buildup are common.

Without lymphatic drainage massages, the body may struggle to remove this fluid altogether, leading to prolonged swelling and discomfort. This delay in fluid removal can also increase the risk of complications such as infection or scar tissue formation.

Without proper lymphatic drainage, there may be decreased blood flow to the surgical site, slowing the body’s healing process and potentially extending recovery time.

Incorporating lymphatic massage into post-surgery recovery is essential for promoting optimal healing, reducing swelling, and ensuring a smoother, more comfortable recovery journey for the patient.
