At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we believe in providing our patients with total care. That includes making sure that their recovery is as quick and comfortable as possible. Things like bruising and swelling are to be expected, but the degree of bruising and swelling that occurs can be controlled.
Other common issues that can occur during the recovery period can also be controlled with proper post-operative care. These issues include:
- Fibrosis (the buildup, thickening, and scarring of connective tissue)
- Keloid scar formation
- Hypertrophic scar formation
Ultrasound-assisted lymphatic massage therapy provides our patients with the post-operative care they need. The ultrasound energy emitted by the device reduces swelling, pain, and bruising, stimulates lymphatic circulation and blood circulation in the body, and enhances the function of the immune system and nervous system.
Stimulating lymphatic circulation helps to avoid fibrosis by preventing fluid from building up around the surgical area. This makes ultrasound-assisted lymphatic therapy an excellent post-operative treatment for liposuction.
Preventing fluid buildup makes it easier for nutrients to pass through tissues, which will help to speed up the recovery process. The treatment also produces a relaxing effect on the muscles, which reduces muscles tension and nerve pain.
At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we recommend that patients receive ultrasound-assisted lymphatic massage therapy after they undergo breast augmentation or liposuction. The treatments typically take 30 minutes to perform, and the number of treatments needed will vary depending on the type of surgery that the patient has undergone.
