A lymphatic massage is a specialized procedure that helps the lymph system work more efficiently. The lymphatic system circulates 3 times per minute on average. After receiving the lymphatic massage, this circulation increases up to 30 times a minute. The effects of this last for nearly 24 hours after the session is over. As the treatment is most effective when the patient is hydrated, it’s recommended that you drink 1.5 liters throughout the day prior to your appointment, and 1.5 liters after your session.

What Are the Benefits of a Lymphatic Massage?

Getting a lymphatic massage has plenty of advantages. Lymphatic massage:

-Promotes the flushing of toxins
-Stimulates wound healing
-Prevents the formation of scar tissue and fibrosis
-Reduces discomfort
-Improves circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid
-Reduces swelling and helps prevent fluid collection

In addition to this, lymphatic massages are extremely beneficial after various invasive procedures. The skin is gently manipulated, lessening the degree of tissue disruption caused by these procedures. This helps get rid of excess fluid (edema) accumulated and promotes drainage.

Using Lymphatic Massage Post Surgery

Regardless of the type of surgery you’ve had, getting a lymphatic massage after your procedure is extremely beneficial. The lymph nodes near the site of the procedure are guided to the closest node near the site of the surgery, using circular strokes and patterns. This motion:

-Allows the flow of fluid accumulated at of the site of surgery
-Reduces swelling at the site
-Carries toxins away from the site
-Encourages the body to heal quicker

At Golden Health & Beauty Center in Encino, we have a carefully designed aftercare protocol for lipo, tummy tuck and any other body contouring surgery:

-Manual lymphatic massage on abdomen, axial, groin and any location where the surgery took place (to decrease swelling and edema and prevent blood clots).
-Pressotherapy lymphatic drainage for legs, arms, abdomen, & back (to decrease swelling and edema and prevent blood cloths).
-Ultrasonic cavitation (to smooth the lumps and scar tissue to enhance the result of surgery).
-Radio frequency (to tighten sagging skin).

Post Tummy Tuck

Getting a lymphatic massage a week after having undergone a tummy tuck procedure helps

-Reduce swelling
-Reduce bruising
-Diminish scar tissue
-Stimulate the immune system
-Ward off infections
-Increase circulation
-Speed the healing process

Post Rhinoplasty

Lymphatic massages are also beneficial to patients recovering from a rhinoplasty.

-Reduce swelling
-Reduce pain
-Lower discomfort
-Speeds the healing process

Post Liposuction

The removal of unwanted fat cells through liposuction causes a considerable amount of swelling as well as trauma at the site where it’s performed. Getting a lymphatic massage after this procedure

-Promotes the healing of incisions and/or injuries
-Carries white blood cells and protein to the blood
-Eliminates toxins from the body
-Enhances circulation
-Improves lymph flow, which helps in the reduction of swelling
-Improves the body’s overall health

Liposuction Aftercare

While liposuction removes a considerable amount of fat cells, it has multiple side effects. Losing a lot of fat results in loose skin and lumpy areas where the adipose tissue was once present. Once the fat is removed, there’s a need to take into account these anomalies to reap maximum benefits of the lipo procedure.


To get rid of the lumpiness caused by the treatment, ultrasonic cavitation after liposuction helps smooth out the skin after treatment. The specific region from where fat deposits have been removed is treated through this to remove the now lumpy area.

Loosened Skin

For skin tightening after liposuction, radio-frequency is used on the loose skin. While lipo gets rid of excess fat, it doesn’t address the sagging skin left behind after undergoing weight loss. RF skin tightening after liposuction prevents the need for further surgery and takes care of this problem.

When Can Manual Lymphatic Drainage Be Used?

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is also especially useful for the following health conditions:

-Secondary Lymphoedema/oedema
-post mastectomy/hysterectomy/post surgical procedures
-Post radiotherapy/chemotherapy treatment
-Post surgical oedema
-pre surgery recovery
-pre-post cosmetic/appearance surgery e.g. liposuction
-Varicose veins

Absolute Contraindications

-Acute inflammation
-Malignant tumors (due to fear of spreading the cancer)
-Thrombosis (can cause free floating blood clots in the circulatory system)
-Major heart problems (if the heart is not fully functioning, oedema can be lymphodynamic due to a lack of venous return. Pumping more fluid in the heart it may stress it more than the actual condition)
