When you decided to get your cosmetic procedure done, you didn’t take it lightly. Don’t lose sight of your goals now during recovery. Your recovery process can be as important to your final results as the surgery itself. There are certain treatments like lymphatic massage that you can use to improve your body’s ability to recover faster and more comfortably. With postoperative care in Atlanta at Nip & Tuck Plastic Surgery, you can make the most of your recovery.
Plastic surgery is a big deal, and your confidence and comfort in the days and weeks following surgery are just as important as how you look and feel once the healing process is done. Liposuction, tucks, and other cosmetic procedures can cause the body to react in a way that causes swelling as it adjusts to the changes. That’s ok, and a postoperative lymphatic massage can help the body along in the healing process.
Dr. Nicolas Jones and Nip & Tuck Plastic Surgery want to make sure plastic surgery patients in Atlanta feel good before, during, and after their cosmetic procedures. Dr. Jones developed one of the most advanced recovery programs in plastic surgery today, including scar therapy, lymphatic massage, and procedure-specific recovery strategies. His patients love the results!
Now, he offers these proven programs and treatments (including postoperative lymphatic massage) to anyone recovering from surgery, regardless of where they received their initial procedures. If you want the best plastic surgery recovery Atlanta has to offer, Nip & Tuck Plastic Surgery is here to help.
Are you feeling some swelling or build-up in the area where you received treatment? Don’t worry, that’s normal, but you don’t have to live with it. Patients typically experience this after liposuction due to the instruments used and the body’s reaction to the surgery. Your body is adjusting to your new look, which means some of the natural pathways it had before might change, leading to swelling.
Post-operation lymphatic massages at Nip & Tuck Plastic Surgery use highly specialized massage techniques to gently massage those affected areas and speed up recovery. Our highly-trained lymphatic massage therapists get the fluid in your body moving again and decrease those areas of swelling so you can feel great about your recovery.
Your body’s lymphatic system is a well-oiled machine designed to move fluids along in your body and cleanse it of toxins. When your body changes, like after plastic surgery, there can be backups in that system that slow you down and make you feel uncomfortable while your body figures out what is exactly going on. The postoperative lymphatic massage is designed to help the body by getting the system back on track, helping things flow naturally, and reducing your pain and discomfort in the process.
This recovery technique gets the lymphatic system moving again. This can speed up the overall healing process for the procedure you just received. The lumps, swelling, and traumas get worked out so you can rest easy. It’s important to address the swelling and lumps quickly. If the lymphatic areas of swelling are left unattended, they can become hard and permanent. A postoperative lymphatic massage can help you avoid that issue.
Nip & Tuck Plastic Surgery recommends that patients start their postoperative lymphatic massages within a few days after their surgeries.
This ensures the healing process starts quickly and avoids excess fluid build-up. The massages work best when performed at least once a week during the first month of recovery, but many of Dr. Jones’ patients see better results with multiple sessions. During your first visit at Nip & Tuck, we’ll walk you through how our recovery process is different and help you determine your optimal path to a full and speedy recovery.

A postoperative lymphatic massage is a fairly simple process. Think of a relaxing massage you’d get for your muscles and aches and all of the relief that comes with it. That’s the exact same thought process behind a postoperative lymphatic massage. A one-hour massage in the areas where the body produces the lymph fluid will help your lymphatic system keep that fluid moving and reduce swelling and inflammation.
You can sit back and relax as the team at Nip & Tuck Plastic Surgery gently work your body with a therapeutic technique designed to get you feeling your absolute best.
Multiple one-hour massages per week during the first month after treatment can dramatically help patients with inflammation following surgery. You can expect to feel relief, and swelling should begin to subside faster following your postoperative lymphatic massage sessions. Many patients opt for 30-minute sessions after the first month or so of treatment.
Recovery is an unavoidable phase of many plastic surgery procedures, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Schedule a consultation with Nip & Tuck Plastic Surgery today to give yourself the best postoperative recovery treatment plan in Atlanta. Your future self will thank you!
