After you have plastic surgery, particularly a body procedure like a tummy tuck, liposuction, or a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) you want to heal as quickly as possible. Lymphatic system is the system of tissues, vessels, and organs that work in conjunction to maintain fluid levels in our body, support immune function, and keep blood circulating. The system carries lymph, a clear fluid that contains proteins, waste, fat cells, and metabolized cells through the body which is filtered through the lymph nodes. Waste is removed from the body as clean lymph circulates back through. When the lymphatic system isn’t moving lymph through the body properly, excess fluid in the body builds up, causing edema and creating a puffy, uncomfortable look and feel.
Lymphatic drainage massage was developed to treat lymphedema, a condition of accumulated fluid within the body that often develops after removing lymph nodes. A trained massage therapist can manually massage the body in a way to push lymph through the body, breaking up areas of swelling and reducing excess fluid in the body. It is imperative to know the anatomy and to be able to distinguish major issues and side effects. Lymphatic Massage is a mainstay of recovery and is done at Queen Aesthetics by licensed medical professionals.
