Lymphatic Drainage After Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction)​

Benefits ​of Lymphatic Massage after a Surgical procedure​

Lymphatic drainage massage can help speeding up the bruising since after a surgical procedure the blood circulation that has pooled in the area will be cleared along with the lymphatic fluid. These gentle, circular motions are performed by our massage practitioners to help move the lymph through your body more efficiently, prodding your immune system into action and speeding up the toxin removal process.

What Is Lymphatic Drainage?​

Many people feel uncomfortable at the thought of any type of massage being performed in an area that has just been treated with surgery. Unlike most massage therapies, lymphatic drainage massage techniques use very light and gentle motions over the skin to encourage drainage of the lymphatic fluid.

Our skilled massage practitioners know that involving the muscle in the massage technique will actually increase blood flow and fluid retention in the area. Our massage therapists also know precisely how to move the lymphatic fluid away from the site of surgery and into the bloodstream to be excreted from the body.

The lymphatic fluid will eventually drain on its own, but this process can take a long time. Since the lymphatic fluid is not needed for proper healing, we can help ease the discomfort of swelling and reduce the risk of bruising by carefully encouraging it to drain.

If you’ve opted for a male breast reduction to treat your gynecomastia, you may be concerned about swelling and bruising following your procedure. Lymphatic drainage massage following gynecomastia surgery can help treat the situation, encouraging drainage of the lymph fluid easily and efficiently to reduce swelling caused by the immune system. With a post surgery massage in Miami, you can be more comfortable and see your results sooner.

Swelling in the surgical area following gynecomastia surgery is common and caused by the lymphatic system’s normal response to injury. Although this buildup of excess fluid and waste product is normal, it can be uncomfortable and may obscure the results of your surgery for quite some time. A lymphatic drainage massage in Miami FL can reduce swelling through lymph drainage and calming the lymph system.

Gynecomastia is a condition in which a male’s breast tissue becomes enlarged or swollen, and appears more similar to female breasts. This usually happens because of an imbalance of estrogen and testosterone, which can occur for a variety of reasons including certain health conditions such as tumors on hormone-producing glands or hyperthyroidism. Certain medications can also cause gynecomastia to develop such as certain antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications.

While gynecomastia is not necessarily harmful, it can be emotionally taxing on a man. Sometimes treating the condition or stopping the medication will allow the hormones to return to their normal levels, but the gynecomastia may not go away. For some men, the best way to treat gynecomastia is with a male breast reduction.

If you have recently had gynecomastia surgery – or are contemplating gynecomastia surgery – call our Miami medical office today. A massage therapist from our team will meet with you to assess your swelling and create a lymphatic massage therapy program to ease your discomfort and promote effective drainage of excess fluid buildup. For gynecomastia surgery, about 10 to 12 drainage massage sessions are required for the best results although your individual needs may vary.

To lessen the amount of swelling and drainage massage sessions needed following your gynecomastia surgery, contact us before your surgery takes place. Lymphatic drainage massage therapy before the surgery can actually reduce the amount of swelling that will occur after your surgery. We are happy to discuss your options with you and answer any questions you may have.
