What is Post-Surgery Lymphatic Massage?
After some surgeries including liposuction and tummy tucks, the body may accumulate liquids that harden and form fibrosis, also known as scar tissue. RF therapy helps to prevent or break down any existing scar tissue that forms. It also stimulates the body’s tissues and collagen which helps to promote healing.
Our RF device can also be used for a lymphatic massage after surgery to help reduce the buildup of fluids, recovery time, scarring, inflammation, and bruising. The heat improves blood and lymphatic circulation and applies deep, constant pressure to the lymph nodes to expel excessive fluids and free fatty acids.
What to Expect
Procedure time depends on the area(s) being treated and can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. Dr. Ellie Zarnegar DMSc, PA, begins by applying glycerin to the area which acts as a heat conductor between the skin and the device. She then begins to move the applicator in circular motions and adjust the heat settings based on your comfort level.
RF treatments are comfortable and painless – in fact, many patients compare it to getting a hot stone massage.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
Depending on the severity of your concerns, Dr. Ellie, DMSc, PA, will determine the number of treatments necessary for results. We offer a series of packages based on your needs:
