Post Operative Cosmetic Lymphatic Massage

Massage for Post-Op Recovery and Accelerated Healing

After Cosmetic Procedures

Whether you have experienced liposuction, tummy tuck, breast implants, coolsculpting or just need to detoxify your system from anesthesia, prescriptions post surgical, I provide a treatment that gives you immediate results. 

“Manual Lymphatic Drainage is the application of light, flowing strokes of massage in specific patterns with the goal of alleviating lymph edema.”

I’ve been doing  General Lymphatic Drainage Massage since 2013 and began post op lymphatic massage in 2018. 

Let's be honest: it’s not a very exciting massage for the client. It can be hard for people to believe that such a light, unobtrusive technique could possibly have any real benefit, especially when compared to a standard Swedish Massage. I’ve had people climb off the table after their first session and blurt, “That’s it?”

The lymphatic system is a delicate network of capillaries resting just underneath the surface of the skin. Pressure exceeding the weight of a quarter flattens the capillaries and prevents the fluid from moving. If you can imagine the effect on water flow through a garden hose if you step on the hose, this is exactly what happens if too much pressure even moderate pressure is used to perform lymphatic work. Now that you understand lets get down to business.

What is included in the treatments plans ?


While the heart continuously pumps blood through the blood vessels, the lymphatic system relies on the movement of smooth muscles to transport fluid through the lymph vessels. After surgery, the lymph nodes commonly tend to swell and become filled with fluid. This can become extremely uncomfortable and even painful if not addressed.

This lymph detox treatment is designed to drain this excess fluid and move it out of the lymph nodes, improving recovery time. You will typically start lymphatic detox treatments a few days after surgery. 

  • Reduces swelling and inflammation

  • Detoxes the body

  • Accelerate healing time

The first week I recommend coming 3 times and then 2 times a week for the next couple of weeks after that we go to once a week.  

  • week one - 3 sessions

  • week two  - 2 sessions

  • week three - 2 sessions

  • week four  - 1  session 

  • week five - 1 session 

  • week six - 1 session



For clients that have had tummy tucks and/or Brazilian Butt lifts I require you stick to getting massage treatments on a consistent basis for the best results and healing after your surgery. I believe that is is crucial to invest in the aftercare and not just the surgery. It is important to take care of your body properly in the days and weeks following your procedure. This specific procedure is a MAJOR SURGERY, which is why I require a 3 phase process. *

*** Please note session packages must be paid in full prior to first treatment, I do not open drainage site to flush fluids, and I do not remove stitches. Stitch removal should be done by your physician to check for any signs of infections. After treatment plans are complete you will be able to schedule individual sessions for maintenance to maintain results.
