March 3 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

lymphatic system



With the ever-increasing demand for surgical procedures, effective pre and post-operative care is as important as ever with Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) being one of the primary treatments.
In this webinar we will be joined by Kathleen Lisson, a Board Certified Massage Therapist, Certified Lymphedema Therapist and author of Plastic Surgery Recovery Handbook to discuss how MLD and other massage techniques can improve patient outcomes following cosmetic surgeries.
Kathleen helps clients recover after a range of cosmetic surgeries including liposuction, Brazilian butt lift, facelift, mommy makeover and tummy tuck.
We will have a 30-minute presentation from Kathleen Lisson followed by an interactive Q&A session.
The presentation will include:
– Ways to reduce swelling after abdominoplasty, facelift, liposuction
– When to start treating clients
– Problems / solutions involving compression garments
– Tips for gaining referrals from plastic surgeons
– Massage Therapy Care Plan





For the Therapists – Why use MLD and Plastic Surgery Recovery Massage techniques?
– Reduce swelling
– Reduce back / neck pain from sleep changes
– Reduce ‘tightness’ after surgery
– Resolve bruising


For the Surgeons – why refer your clients to a MLD therapist?
Surgeons are judged on BOTH amazing results AND great aftercare.
In Shiffman & Di Giuseppe’s book, Liposuction: Principles and practice, Cornely says “presurgical and post-surgical manual lymph drainage is indispensable. The postsurgical manual lymph drainage results in rapider healing and mobilisation of the remaining tumescence solution out of the areas operated upon” (2006, pg. 333).




Kathleen Lisson is board certified in therapeutic massage and bodywork and is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist with a Bachelors of Applied Science degree in Massage Therapy, and an ACE-certified Personal Trainer.
She owns Solace Massage and Mindfulness and is an NCBTMB Approved Continuing Education Provider.
Kathleen is also the author of several books including:
– Plastic Surgery Recovery Handbook,
– Southern California Plastic Surgery Cookbook, and
– Lipedema Treatment Guide.
Recently, Kathleen was a speaker at the 2018 and 2019 Fat Disorders Resource Society conferences, at the 2020 National Lymphedema Network and American Vein & Lymphatic Society conferences and keynote speaker at the 2019 MLD UK conference.
