PS-MLD plays an important role as a supplement to standard rehabilitation procedures after surgery because it additional benefits promote tissue relaxation, flow in blood and oxygen circulation. Post-Surgical Manual Lymphatic Drainage (PS-MLD) is considered the standard of care in recovering after plastic surgery recovery procedures including “Mommy Makeover”, BBL, facial surgery, breast lift/augmentation, liposuction and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). By activating the compromised lymphatic pathway with application of anastomosis, faja compression and foam theory, PS-MLD sessions focus on reducing swelling, bruising and pain.

The number of sessions patients need will depend on their surgery. It is recommended by plastic surgeons to have a minimum of 6-12 sessions:

  • Small Procedure: 6 sessions at minimum
  • Medium Procedure Combo: 8-12 sessions at minimum
  • Large Procedure Combo:12-24 sessions at minimum

To receive the full benefit of Manual Lymphatic Drainage after Liposuction it is best to receive a treatment as soon as possible after the procedure. Preferrable the very next day after your surgery. Treatment can be received every day for 7 consecutive days, or every other day or every three days in the first week of post-op period.

This supplemental PS-MLD treatment is proven to work in conjunction with the supplied faja compression garment with foam theory and additional recovery instructions from your primary physician/plastic surgeon.
