Benefits ​of Lymphatic Drainage Massage After Mastectomy

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 a Lymphatic Drainage Massage?​

Unlike deep tissue and other forms of massage, lymphatic drainage massage involves light movements and pressure to stimulate the lymph nodes, which are located just beneath your skin. 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.

During a lymphatic drainage massage, a massage therapist who is specially trained in the technique manually pushes the lymphatic excess fluid away from the area that was treated with liposuction. This specialized post lipo massage is not painful, although you may experience some slight discomfort because of the bruising that can occur following liposuction.

The motions used by the massage practitioner are often described as rotating or pumping, and they help to rid the liposuction area of the lymphatic fluid without stimulating the circulatory system to provide extra blood to the area, which often occurs with regular deep tissue massage. It’s important to seek a practitioner skilled in this type of post surgical massage since extra blood, while not harmful, will make it more difficult to identify and move the lymphatic fluid and provide proper drainage.

Learn More About Lymphatic Drainage after Mastectomy (Breast Cancer Surgery)

For those with breast cancer, a mastectomy can be a life-saving surgery. Removing the breast tissue gets rid of the cancerous tumor and considerably reduces the risk of cancer ever returning.

Unfortunately, a mastectomy, like any other surgery, has side effects. Because your immune system views the mastectomy as a trauma to the body, it reacts the same way it would to an injury. Lymphatic fluid is rushed to the area as your body works to heal itself.

While the action of the lymphatic system is a good and desirable thing in the case of a true injury, following your surgery, the lymphatic fluid beneath the skin will lead to swelling, bruising, and discomfort. In the case of a mastectomy, the lymphatic fluid may be particularly troubling as it may impede the ability of your oncologist to determine whether all the cancer is gone.

Fortunately, lymphatic drainage massage techniques can help to decrease discomfort through the healing process by reducing swelling and fluid build up. A post surgery massage in Miami can benefit you through your mastectomy recovery.

Lymphatic drainage massage is a specialized technique. It uses very light motions above the skin to encourage drainage of the excess fluids from the affected tissue. Unlike regular therapeutic massage, the movements you feel will be very light. In fact, many people are often surprised at the effectiveness of the massage because of these small movements. These small movements are an advantage following a mastectomy since nobody wants pressure on the operated area.

Lymphatic drainage massage benefits however, are amazing. The fluid is gently moved away from the surgical area, which actually improves the healing process. You’ll see less swelling and bruising and feel much more comfortable following your mastectomy than you would otherwise. Additionally, your oncologist will be able to better track your progress to make sure that the cancer is gone.

Lymph drainage requires a number of treatments for the full results to become apparent. While the number varies depending on your individual body and how your immune system is reacting to your cancer and your mastectomy, you can expect 10 to 12 lymphatic drainage massage sessions for full effect.

Because the touch of the drainage massage practitioner is so light, you are likely to enjoy your sessions and feel better afterward. Following your mastectomy, you may have had a drain placed to allow for fluid drainage. With lymphatic drainage massage to move this fluid away and encourage your body to reabsorb it, you may experience less drainage through the tube, which most patients appreciate.

You can also prepare for your mastectomy by having lymphatic drainage massage performed before your actual surgery. This can result in less swelling following your mastectomy and fewer lymphatic drainage massage sessions later.
