What is Lymphatic Drainage

Post Vaser Liposuction lymphatic drainage is a combination of specialised massage techniques that are implemented to help the body heal quicker and reduce swelling, hardness and discomfort. Lymphatic massage does not change the finally result of the surgery but can aid in decreasing the healing time and certainly improve comfort during the healing process. It helps to encourage the body to eliminate excess fluid build up.

The Procedure

The practitioner will gently massage the area using a specialist technique designed to push excess fluid towards the heart. This encourages the body to excrete the fluid, expediting the results of VASER.

The sessions range from 30 minutes to an hour and can be done as often as needed commencing a week after surgery.
