Learn More About Lymphatic Drainage
Lymphatic drainage is a process that relieves swelling in the lymphatic system. Your lymphatic system is responsible for aiding in draining away excess fluids and balancing your body’s immune system. Lymphatic drainage massage can boost this process, helping fluids drain faster and easing swelling. It can also improve blood flow, decrease pain, and improve your range of mobility following your surgical procedure.
Brandon Plastic Surgery is conveniently located 15 minutes from Riverview, 51 minutes from Lakeland, and 60 minutes from Winter Haven.
Lymphatic massage works in two steps. The goal of the first step is to release lymphatic fluid from your tissues, reducing swelling and waste. The second step helps move the lymphatic fluid toward your lymph nodes where it can be flushed from the body. Lymphatic drainage can be incredibly relaxing and beneficial to your recovery phase after a procedure – you’ll simply relax at our luxurious Tampa area office while our team performs the procedure.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a great option for patients looking to relax and recover faster after a surgical procedure. It can also be ideal for symptoms like swelling, discomfort, heaviness, tightness, or stiffness in many different areas of the body. Lymphatic drainage can also be beneficial for a variety of medical conditions, and our team can help you determine if lymphatic drainage is the right option for you during a consultation.
There’s typically no recovery involved after lymphatic drainage, but we recommend avoiding wearing tight-fitting clothing and drinking plenty of water to help flush out lymphatic fluids. Additionally, avoid caffeine and alcohol for the first 24 hours. Although resting is important, we also recommend doing some light exercise like walking to help boost circulation and promote drainage.
