Post Surgical Lymphatic and General Lymphatic Massage

 for Post-Op Recovery and Accelerated Healing

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 are the rates for sessions???










  General Manual Lymphatic Massage (non-surgical) - Great for detoxing system before surgery as well.

    Beneficial effect on your general health is key to keeping your immune system working properly, improving 

    the flow and drainage of lymph around the body is good for you in lots of lots of ways. 

  • reduce the chance of you suffering from minor colds and viruses; it helps your body fight off infection, and speeds up healing and recovery from illness

  • help reduce water retention; for instance, because the lymph system has no pump, if you sit for a long time without moving, the lymph can't flow easily — this is why you may experience swollen feet or fingers

  • boost weight loss, as improving the lymphatic system will improve your metabolic rate, which helps you burn calories more efficiently.

  •    Manual lymphatic drainage is also used in the treatment of lymphoedema.

What is included in the treatment 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


How many massage sessions do I need?

Always ask your doctor the s/he recommendation. I always like to ask clients this question "How much time are you willing to spend on your recovery"?

30 minute massage are great for people who received LIPO360 only. 30 minute massage are great for LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGES meaning the fluid will drain out of the incisions. 

60 minute massages are great for multiple areas such as BBL, Tummy Tuck, BBL with Lipo360 Arms and Chin Lipo. Below are examples to show you that multiple areas need more time.

360 Liposuction - 15 to 20 Sessions
360-degree liposuction is a more comprehensive procedure that combines liposuction of the entire midsection to achieve an overall curvier, contoured figure from every angle.

Brazilian Butt Lift - 12 to 20 Sessions
A Brazilian butt lift is a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without implants.

Buttocks lift surgery, also called " Brazilian butt lift surgery ," is an increasingly common plastic surgery technique intended to firm and enhance a patient's rear end. Like other body lifts, butt lift surgery is useful for removing excess skin while toning and tightening the remaining skin.

Mommy Makeover - 20 to 25 Sessions
A mommy makeover is one of the most unique cosmetic procedures available in the sense that it's not a single, defined surgery . Instead, a mommy makeover allows the patient and surgeon to work together to determine which surgeries and treatments will best help patients best achieve their goals.
As it is, a Mommy Makeover is typically comprised of roughly three procedures: a breast lift, liposuction, and tummy tuck. These three procedures are designed to address complaints that are common among mothers or at least exacerbated by motherhood.

Tummy Tuck - 20 to 30 Sessions
A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the abdomen. During a tummy tuck also known as abdominoplasty excess skin and fat are removed from
the abdomen. Connective tissue in the abdomen (fascia) usually is tightened with sutures as well. The remaining skin is then repositioned to create a more toned look.
You might choose to have a tummy tuck if you have excess fat or skin around the area of your bellybutton or a weak lower abdominal wall. A tummy tuck can also boost your body image.

360 Liposuction and Brazilian Butt Lift 10 to 20 Sessions

This procedure is perfect for individuals who are looking for a more contoured midsection, as well as adding shape and volume to your buttocks. The butt augmentation procedure uses
liposuction to remove fat from specific midsection areas. The removed fat is then processed, purified and re-injected into the buttocks area to enhance the shape and symmetry of the butt and
hip areas.

Arm Liposuction - 12 sessions 30-40 min
Liposuction of the arms is a form of plastic surgery to remove stubborn fat pockets on the upper arms. It can effectively remove bat wings and restore self-confidence.

Chin Liposuction - 12 sessions 30-40 min
Liposuction under the chin (submental suction-assisted lipectomy) is a surgical procedure performed to remove unwanted deposits of fat from beneath the chin (“double chin”) and to improve jawline definition.

Inner Thigh Liposuction - 12 sessions 30-40 min
Liposuction on the inner thighs could improve the overall silhouette of the thighs. Getting inner thigh liposuction can also eliminate problems such as thighs rubbing together. During this
procedure, the surgeon often treats the inner knees too; this to maintain the symmetry of the legs
