Healing Care Awaits You

At Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, we offer the latest healing care to support our patients in their journey to wellness. We are proud to introduce Lymphatic Massage, a gentle and therapeutic massage technique that provides significant healing benefits, particularly for patients recovering from surgical procedures. This specialized procedure is particularly beneficial for individuals undergoing cosmetic surgery, helping to relieve painful swelling in the operated area caused by lymphedema. In addition to aiding in the recovery process following cosmetic procedures, lymphatic massage can benefit those with conditions such as lymphedema following breast cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic venous insufficiency, and lipedema.

The healing benefits of lymphatic massage include:

  • Reducing inflammation and swelling after surgery or injury
  • Supporting detoxification and immune function
  • Alleviating stress and promoting relaxation
  • Improving skin tone and texture
  • Relieving swelling in the arms and legs
  • Promoting lymph flow

We welcome you to experience the restorative effects of lymphatic massage at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, where our compassionate team is dedicated to providing personalized and innovative solutions for your well-being.

What Can Lymphatic Massage Treat?

Lymphatic drainage massages are often used to relieve:

  • Lymphedema following aesthetic surgery or procedures
  • Rheumatoid arthritis causing joint pain, swelling, and stiffness
  • Fibromyalgia-related muscle and joint pain
  • Chronic venous insufficiency, which affects the effectiveness of leg veins
  • Lipedema, characterized by excess fat accumulation in the lower body
  • Lymphedema following breast cancer treatments

How It Works

During a lymphatic massage, our skilled therapists use gentle, rhythmic movements to stimulate lymph flow in the body. This helps clear lymphatic fluid in the tissues and promotes reabsorption, aiding in the movement of the lymphatic fluid to the lymph nodes for processing and detoxification. The entire procedure is designed to be soothing and non-invasive, providing our patients with a comfortable and rejuvenating experience.

Your Recovery Period

Recovery from lymphatic massage is typically smooth and comfortable, tailored to each individual's needs. The procedure is generally safe and well-tolerated. However, individuals with specific health conditions such as heart issues, kidney failure, blood clots, or infections may need to consult with a healthcare provider before undergoing the massage. If you have any concerns or experience unexpected reactions following the massage, we encourage you to seek guidance from our healthcare team for personalized advice and support.
