Manual Lymphatic Drainage in Pre and Post Cosmetic Surgery – London
12th April 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Here we will introduce you to the latest medical technology for lymphatic drainage, applied to aid and enhance your patient’s recovery throughout their surgical journey.
Over 28,000 cosmetic procedures (surgical) were performed in 2017…In the UK alone.
With this ever-increasing demand for surgical procedures, we see the need for superior pre and post-operative care. From a clinician and patient perspective, there is also the pressure for quicker and more effective recovery. Whether we are wanting to address post-operative oedema, bruising, scaring, tissue function or general healing, the incorporation of targeted negative pressure in our MLD treatments can effectively enhance our surgical outcomes no matter what the procedure is.
This 2 hour event covers the theoretical background and importance of manual lymphatic drainage, introducing you to LymphaTouch’s targeted negative pressure system and demonstrating its applications through a hands-on treatment session.
