The quickest way to recovery
During surgery, the skin tissues are traumatized. This trauma is expressed thru the following symptoms:
Subcutaneous hemorrhages, which without the appropriate treatment, may become skin hardenings.
Swelling-following surgery, an increased protein level at the intracellular margin can be noted. The protein absorbs fluids, thus causing the formation of swelling.
Inflammation, pain, uncomfortability- following surgery, there is an increase in the activity of the sympathetic system, and as a result an amplification of the feeling of pain, uncomfortability and inflammation.
Scarring or skin irregularities-during surgery, a separation between the different skin layers is executed, and consequently cell debris appears, hindering and preventing the fusion of the separated skin layers.
Feeding and nourishing-following surgery, the operated tissue requires increased feeding and nourishment.
Within the comprehensive treatment rendered in our clinic, before and after surgery, we recommend a lymphatic drainage/massage as the most appropriate and effective tool to resolve these phenomena.
Lymphatic (drainage) massage-the quickest way to recovery
A gentle, rhythmic massage technique of the skin, performed at a depth of 1-2mm. This technique moves and motivates the skin, applying pressure to the tissues in order to accomplish:
Skeletal muscle relaxation.
Improving the delivery of nutrients to the tissue and draining the cellular debris from it, while creating a healthy environment for the operated tissue.
