MANUAL LYMPH DRAINAGE FOR COSMETIC-SURGERY PATIENTS
Speed up your healing time enormously!
After research and medical studies conducted the evidence points to this conclusion, that those given MLD after a surgery healed within six weeks to three months, significantly shortening postoperative recovery.” with a complete resolution of postoperative oedema, bruising and fibrosis within 9-18 months in non-MLD patients.
Benefits of MLD to cosmetic-surgery patients:
● Bruising reduction. Cells transported by the lymph system are moved away up to 20 times faster with MLD. Bruises heal in a fraction of the time, allowing clients the ability to resume activities of daily living, without having to wear sunglasses for months to hide bruises.
● Oedema reduction. MLD reroutes lymph fluid to collateral and viable pathways untouched by surgery to allow for accelerated drainage, as opposed to the slow trickle of tissue fluids in the operative site.
● Pain management. As pressure of lymph fluid decreases around nerves, pain and discomfort are relieved and require less pain medication.
● Scar-tissue prevention and fibrosis reduction. Lymph fluid left to build up below incisions or sitting in interstitial space can solidify, causing the formation of scar tissue and fibrotic tissue. These tissues are often felt as ball-like substances below the skin surface. MLD prevents lymph fluid build up and solidification, for a seamless scar.
With all the benefits of MLD, it’s understandable why the modality is growing in interest from surgeons. The typical side effects of post-op surgery can be significantly reduced with MLD, minimizing downtime and discomfort.
“The surgical patient, in particular, benefits largely from manual lymphatic drainage,” says cosmetic surgeon Bart Rademaker, M.D. “In these situations, the normal homeostasis is upset through anaesthesia or tissue injury, and the normal channels to remove excessive toxins or waste are overwhelmed.
“Effective manual lymphatic drainage improves surgical outcomes and speed of recovery,” he adds. What’s more, it is all natural and with no side effects.
