What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of massage therapy that uses gentle, rhythmic strokes to stimulate the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is responsible for removing excess fluid and waste from the body. MLD helps to promote lymph flow and drainage, which can help reduce swelling and inflammation, improve circulation, and boost the immune system.

Benefits of MLD after cosmetic surgery

MLD can provide many benefits for individuals recovering from cosmetic surgery. Here are some of the key benefits:

Reduced swelling: One of the primary benefits of MLD is its ability to reduce swelling. Swelling is a common side effect of cosmetic surgery, and it can be uncomfortable and make it difficult to move around. MLD can help to reduce swelling by promoting lymph flow and drainage, allowing excess fluid to be removed from the body more quickly.

Improved circulation: MLD can also help to improve circulation, which can aid in healing and recovery. Improved circulation can help to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the affected area, which can help to promote healing.

Boosted immune system: MLD can also help to boost the immune system. The lymphatic system is an important part of the immune system, and MLD can help to promote lymph flow and drainage, which can help to remove toxins and waste from the body.

Relaxation: Finally, MLD can be a very relaxing experience. The gentle, rhythmic strokes can help to reduce stress and tension, promoting relaxation and overall wellbeing.

MLD is an essential part of recovery post-surgery as it facilitates moving lymph fluid by gently directing it back into the lymph vessels, reducing swelling, retention of fluids, and pain after the surgery. Improving circulation facilitating faster recovery.

Without having a manual lymphatic massage after liposuction or similar surgery, there is the potential risk of inflammation evolving into fibrosis a permanent hardening of the tissues or a Seroma (formation of pockets of blood)

An MLD massage is a two-step process:

  • Clearing: This step releases lymphatic fluid in your tissues.
  • Reabsorption: This step moves your lymphatic fluid to your lymph nodes.

Manual lymphatic drainage is a gentle and effective way to aid recovery after cosmetic surgery. It can help to reduce swelling, improve circulation, boost the immune system, and promote relaxation. If you are considering cosmetic surgery, consider incorporating MLD into your recovery process to help ensure a speedy and comfortable recovery.

In the first week post surgery, MLD sessions is recommended to be carried out 3 times a week. The second week, at least twice a week, reducing in frequency after that.
