Post-Operative Care Following Plastic Surgery
One of the most common mistakes that people make with cosmetic surgeries is the failure to allow sufficient recovery time, combined with a lack of knowledge with regards the best methods for enhancing recovery. Lymphatic drainage is essential both before surgery and after. Many patients experience pain, swelling, sleep disturbances and bruising following surgery and have few options to handle these uncomfortable symptoms. Without proper support, healing can be limited, and recovery can take much longer than anticipated.
Lymphatic drainage vessels can be cut or damaged during surgery which has a negative affect on the healing process. Lymphatic system decongestion is essential for regaining normal texture, definition and tone of skin. London Physiotherapy at Home can ensure that you benefits from:

- Forehead Lifts

- Fat Injections, such as a Brazilian butt lift
- Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
- Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
The treatment has been established as standard practice throughout the World. Typically, plastic surgeons recommend that their patients receive anywhere from 3 to 7 sessions per week for up to one month following their surgery. In South America, it is common to receive therapy even more often which many believe explains the phenomenal results cosmetic surgeons are famous for.
Lymphatic Drainage can even be extremely useful prior to an upcoming plastic surgery procedure. You should have your treatment 24 to 48 hours before surgery. This helps to prepare the body’s immune system, helping to fortify it against the upcoming trauma.
