Post Surgical Massage


Book a Top Rated Post Surgical Massage

Looking to enhance your recovery process and get back to feeling like your best self after surgery? Zion Plastic Surgery’s skilled and experienced massage therapists are trained in top rated post surgical massage techniques designed to stimulate the lymphatic system, a network of vessels and glands that help eliminate toxins from the body.

We find that many of our patients experience swelling and inflammation after a surgery, which can cause discomfort after a few days if not treated properly. A lymphatic drainage massage helps with reducing these surgery side effects or can help treat physical injuries. This gentle and effective massage has many benefits, including reducing inflammation, improving circulation, and boosting your immune system, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Lymphatic drainage massages are conducted by applying light pressure on the lymph node parts of your body. During the massage, lymph fluid gets released, carrying healing cells and nutrients into your bloodstream and eliminating waste from your body. Zion Plastic Surgery’s trained massage specialists will communicate with you to apply the right amount of pressure and rhythm on the lymphatic areas of the body and yield the desired results.


Plastic surgeons recommend lymphatic drainage massages to patients after surgery due to its proven effects in aiding patient recovery. Our lymphatic drainage massage is ideal for anyone looking to improve their overall health and wellness, whether you’re recovering from surgery, experiencing fluid retention, or looking to enhance their body’s natural detoxification process. 

Our professionals recommend patients undergo a lymphatic drainage massage for up to one hour duration and book up to ten massage sessions after their surgery. These conditions may vary depending on the type of procedure and the patient’s health and recovery. Whether you’ve had a tummy tuck, liposuction, or other cosmetic procedure, our patients are amazed at how fast they recover.

Post-procedure, we recommend massages. Depending on the type of cosmetic surgery, the number of massages can range from 1 to 10 sessions.



Steps to Prepare for Your Massage


Before a lymphatic drainage massage, you should drink lots of water to remain hydrated, remove toxins from your system, and aid the drainage process. You should also wear loose-fitting clothing to your appointment.


After a lymphatic drainage massage, you should drink plenty of water to promote good circulation and healing benefits. You should also get plenty of rest and, if you feel up to it, go about the rest of your day as usual.
