State of the Art Plastic Surgery center provides post-operatory massages that directly stimulate the lymphatic system. This rhythmical circular massage encourages the lymphatic system to eliminate bacteria, excess fluids and metabolic waste.

Other benefits of stimulating the lymphatics include:

  • Increases the body's "coping mechanisms" in dealing with stress, depression and sleeping disorders.
  • Reduces chronic pain.
  • Detoxifies the body.
  • Reduces fluid retention brought on by menstruation or pregnancy.
  • Helps facilitate healing.
  • Builds your body's immune system and increases the production of antibodies.
  • It can also reduce inflammation in the body that causes arthritis.

In regards to after surgery recovery and the use of Lymphatic drainage massages, in general it is best to wait an average of 4 weeks or until Dr. Karim Benítez-Marchand recommends a Lymph drainage massage.
