Lymph Drainage Therapy After Liposuction
You many notice a hardness or lumpiness to the areas treated with liposuction or Smart-lipo, especially in the abdominal area. This occurs even more so if combined with other body contouring procedures (such as fat injections for what is popularly known as the Brazilian Butt Lift).
This is normal right after Liposuction procedure. This post-surgical lymphedema is caused by inflammation and trauma from the cannula (instrument that sucks out the fat) moving under the skin. Channels are formed by the cannula that can fill up with fluid and the tissue also becomes swollen. LPG Endermologie Lipomassage helps to move the fluid by gently pumping it back into the lymph vessels. Reducing the swelling can reduce discomfort. Without Lymph Massage the inflammation can evolve into fibrosis (a permanent hardening of the tissue) or a seroma (pocket of serum) can form.
Many doctors prescribe Lymph Drainage Therapy after liposuction to make sure their patients get the best possible results from their procedure
Endermologie technique is highly operator-dependent and successful in over 80% of patients as an alternative to and after liposuction. Excellent technique and psychological motivation by the therapist improves the results.
