Post-Op Pain Relief with Lymphatic Drainage

This technique aims to stimulate the lymphatic system and move lymphatic fluid toward the lymph nodes, which help remove excess fluid from the body. It can provide significant pain relief for patients experiencing post-operative swelling and discomfort. Lymphatic drainage can also help manage swelling during recovery from a surgical procedure where lymph nodes were removed. Our plastic surgeons and the Florida Plastic Surgery Group team offer lymphatic drainage through our lymphatic massage therapist as a treatment option to help manage swelling and relieve pain.

Experience Relief at Florida Plastic Surgery Group

At Florida Plastic Surgery Group, we offer lymphatic drainage as a treatment option for patients experiencing swelling and discomfort after medical treatments, surgeries, illnesses, or health conditions. Our plastic surgeons and team are proud to provide this gentle technique, which offers significant pain relief and swelling reduction. We believe in providing our patients with the best care possible, and lymphatic drainage is one of the many ways we strive to achieve that goal.

What Are the Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage?

Lymphatic fluid is essential for removing toxins, bacteria, and waste materials from our bodies and supporting our immune systems. However, if the liquid is not reabsorbed correctly, it can build up and cause painful swelling.

Professional lymphatic drainage gently stimulates lymph vessel contraction, increasing the flow rate and directing lymph fluid toward lymph nodes. This helps drain the fluid buildup in tissues and relieve swelling.

Lymphatic drainage can also:

  • Improve circulation
  • Boost the immune system
  • Rejuvenate the appearance of the skin

It's a helpful technique for enhancing recovery after surgery, injury, or illness.

Who Are Good Candidates for Lymphatic Drainage?

Ideal candidates for lymphatic drainage include patients suffering from swelling induced by surgery, removal of lymph nodes, or trauma to the lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage can assist patients experiencing swelling or pain due to the following conditions:

  • Cancer (particularly breast cancer) and certain kinds of cancer treatment
  • Lymphatic system trauma or infection
  • Blood flow insufficiency to extremities
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lymphedema

Lymphatic drainage can help individuals experiencing various conditions and can be used as therapy for recovery after surgery. However, it may not be suitable for people with blood clots, heart conditions, infections, or kidney failure. Our team can evaluate your concerns and help determine if lymphatic drainage is right for you.

What Does the Lymphatic Drainage Procedure Involve?

During the lymphatic drainage procedure, our certified lymphedema therapist will use gentle Vodder method techniques in areas of the body experiencing swelling. It is important to understand that lymphatic drainage is different from a standard massage in that lymphatic drainage involves Light movements to stimulate and direct lymph flow toward the affected areas' regional lymph nodes whereas typical massage involves deep pressure. Lymphatic drainage treatments are performed in one-hour sessions here at our practice.
