An important aspect of any surgical procedure is the post rehabilitation recovery process. Massage plays an important role as a supplement to standard rehabilitation instructions and a healthy diet after surgery. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons last year alone more than 15.2 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures were performed in the United States. Liposuction, Breast Augmentation, and Blepharoplasty lead the list. Most people are often so happy to go through with their procedures that they forget that it is a serious undertaking for the body. Post-Operative Massage can make a major impact in your level of comfort following a procedure, and accelerate the healing process helping you to reach the greatest result.
Your lymphatic system is an essential part of your immune system, and the quality of its function greatly determines how well the body can heal. Lymphatic flow can stagnate for many reasons, such as swelling, chronic inflammation, lack of physical activity, stress, fatigue, emotional shock, age, poorly fitted under garments, or tight clothing worn for an excessive amount of time. When lymphatic circulation slows down, the regeneration of cells becomes less effective. This condition allows toxins and proteins to accumulate around the cells, causing cellular oxygenation to decrease and tissue regeneration to diminish. POM releases inflamed muscles and tissues in the areas where the procedure has been performed by alleviating the accumulation and stagnation of body fluids. By supporting the lymphatic system and increasing circulation you may discover these surprising benefits:
Reduction in bruising
Reduction of pain
Reduction of inflammation
Fewer lumps and bumps, normalization of tissues in area of surgery
Increased skin flexibility
Less time for body to reconstruct tissues
Prevention of subcutaneous fibrosis after liposuction
Normalization of tissue sensitivity
Calming effect on the nervous system
Often Post-Operative Massage can begin the week following most procedures. If your procedure has taken place within the last 6 months, when you begin POM will be determined by your physician. Make sure you meet all of the post-surgical follow up requirements given to you by your doctor.
Most patients who opt for this service are very pleased and surprised with the remarkable difference Post-Operative Massage makes in the healing process. However, not all patients are good candidates for lymphatic drainage or circulatory massage after a procedure. If you are experiencing any type of acute infection, thrombosis, low blood pressure, hyperthyroidism, certain types of asthma or malignant tumors discuss this with your physician to determine if you are a good candidate for this beneficial postsurgical procedure. If you are a new patient considering how to make the most of an upcoming surgical procedure, ask your physician about the many benefits of Post-Operative Massage.
