Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage Therapy after Surgery

Aclients may make a post operative appointment for whenever their surgeon clears them to receive a treatment. Clients may not receive MLD over an area for two weeks that has been treated with any injectable treatment such as Botox or an area of fat transfer for six weeks.

If a client is showing any signs or symptoms of post operative complications or any illness, services will not be rendered. The client will be advised to follow up with their GP or surgeon or report to an appropriate medical facility.

Post operative clients must be cleared by their surgeon to receive lymphatic drainage. If your surgeon has not cleared you to receive lymphatic drainage, please contact them to discuss whether you may begin treatment.

MacLymph Lymphatic does not provide any deep or painful massage techniques to post operative clients.

MacLymph Lymphatic will not open incisions or needle aspirations of seromas or remove JP drains or sutures.

MacLymph Lymphatic can advise on post surgical compression garments, medical taping options and options for seroma compression options.

    Session Time

    Most people are curious about how long the treatment will last. It typically lasts anywhere from thirty to ninety minutes. After your first session, you might be asked to come in every other day for the first few weeks.

    • After that, the therapist will perform a massage once a week for four to six week
    • Eventually, it will be done only once a month for four to five months
