MLD PRE-POST COSMETIC SURGERY (RECOVERY)
MLD IN COSMETIC SURGERY RECOVERY.
How does it work:
During cosmetic surgery, pathways become temporally congested causing excess cellular debris, metabolic waste dead cells and fluid which accumulate in the tissue leading to swelling and discomfort.
The role of the lymphatic system is to remove the congestion from the affected area as quickly and efficiently as possible.
MLD treatment reduces swelling quicker, resulting in less pain, faster healing and less scar tissue formation.
Bar Rademaker Cosmetic Surgeon says:
“Effective MLD definitely improves surgical outcomes and speed of recovery”
How soon you can start MLD depends on the procedure and your cosmetic surgeon.

MLD PRE-COSMETIC SURGERY
MLD treatment before cosmetic surgery helps to prepare the area of the body about to undergo an operation by draining excess fluids from the cells.
The effect of MLD treatment may reduce the risk of post surgical complications such as infections, excessive swelling, bruising and scar tissue that can later restrict mobility.
The experience will also help you enter the surgery with a peaceful mind.
It is recommended to have a treatment prior to and as close to the date of surgery as possible.
MLD POST-COSMETIC SURGERY
MLD is often recommended by plastic surgeons in Europe and USA to improve healing and reduce recovery time after surgery.
MLD is a very gentle treatment which can be received at a very early post operative stage. (Upon surgeon's approval).
Patients receiving MLD immediately begin to relax and quickly feel the discomfort and pain diminish and disappear.
BENEFITS of MLD to cosmetic surgery patients
Pain management. As pressure of lymph fluid decreases around the nerves, pain and discomfort are relieved.
Swelling, bruises and oedema may reduce quicker.
Healing process is accelerated.
Prevention of scar tissue formation and fibrosis is reduced.
Tissue quality is improved, better visible results are achieved.
Treatment frequency after surgery will depend on the operation and the patient.
