With an increase in private cosmetic surgical procedures across the UK, there’s a higher demand for superior pre and post-operative care. There is also a need from patients to recover from their procedures quicker and with limited scarring. Using negative pressure particularly we can;
Reduction in bruising. It is said that cells are transported by the lymphatic system up to 10 times faster with the addition of MLD. Bruising is therefore able to heal in a fraction of the time, allowing the patient to resume activities of daily living without the worry or need to cover up.
Reduction in oedema. MLD reroutes lymph fluid to the collateral and viable pathways untouched by surgery, enabling accelerated drainage as opposed to the usual slow trickle of tissue fluids at the operative site.
Pain management. With a reduced pressure of lymph around the nerves, pain and discomfort are relieved. The treatment also benefits from being painless and relaxing – try not to fall asleep!
Minimises scarring and prevents fibrosis. The build up of lymph fluids sitting either beneath the incision or within interstitial space can solidify. The formation of scar tissue and fibrotic tissue takes place. MLD prevents the build-up and hence solidification of lymph fluid, leaving a more seamless and less-restricted scar.
Prevents infection. In this instance, post-surgical MLD is essential when we consider stagnating lymph fluid. It can become an infectious substance and warrant an artificial drain, which is in turn painful, costly and time consuming.
Stress relief. The treatment relaxes the sympathetic nervous system – helping to relieve stress.

Cosmetic lymphatic drainage comprises 3 phases. The 1st phase would entail a full body lymphatic drainage (MLD) treatment a day or two prior to surgery. It is recommended that at least 1 session is performed, to prepare the body for surgery, advance the healing process, facilitate the immune system and stimulate the drainage of toxins and excess fluids.
During surgery, well-decongested tissues are easier to see and work on, enabling clean cuts and incisions.
The 2nd phase would likely take place anything from a few days to a few weeks post-surgery, depending on the surgical site/procedure and the patient’s response to surgery. At this stage, the treatment will predominantly focus on the surgical site(s).
Phase 3 comprises a slightly different approach, and can be coupled up with phase 2’s treatment. In this instance, cross friction and deep tissue work around the surgical site helps break up any adhesions that may be forming.
It is now advised to continue the sessions as appropriate, to manage the post-operative swelling and bruising in the weeks to follow. Ideally, 4-6 sessions post-surgery is recommended to achieve optimum results.
