what is a Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

A lymphatic drainage massage is a post-surgical treatment that helps to relieve swelling and discomfort following a surgical procedure. The process of lymphatic drainage releases toxins and expedites healing. At DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Boston, MA, our plastic surgeons and aestheticians often recommend lymphatic massage to stimulate your lymphatic system into increasing blood flow and reducing tissue inflammation. After cosmetic or plastic surgery, our team will offer a lymphatic massage as a part of your treatment plan so that you can feel better and recover more quickly. 

what does a lymphatic massage treat?

Ideal candidates for a lymphatic drainage massage are those who have recently suffered from an illness or an invasive aesthetic procedure that has or could potentially cause pain or swelling. Our team recommends a lymphatic massage to any of our patients who will be undergoing a minimally invasive or surgical procedure, and who could benefit from a release of toxins and a decrease of swelling or discomfort. 

What Are the Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massages?

Lymphatic drainage massage is a therapeutic treatment that is especially beneficial after surgery to enhance recovery and improve overall well-being. At DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Boston, MA, this gentle massage technique is used to stimulate the lymphatic system, helping to speed up the removal of waste and reduce swelling. Key benefits of lymphatic drainage massage include:

  • Reduction of swelling
  • Accelerated healing
  • Pain relief
  • Promotes relaxation and stress relief

how is a lymphatic drainage massage performed?

Your massage may take place immediately following your surgical procedure while you rest and recover. For follow-up or additional massages, you will lie down in one of our private treatment rooms for about an hour during your treatment. Using light pressure and professional techniques, a member of our team will carry out your massage while you inhale and exhale deeply. Using gentle but moderate pressure, we will engage your diaphragm muscles. Depending on the type of cosmetic surgery you recently had, we will instruct you on how best to relax and position your body during treatment. The massage may include parts of your neck, abdomen, legs, and back.


Will this massage hurt?
The lymphatic massage is meant to relieve pain, reduce discomfort, and help you relax. If you feel uncomfortable during the massage, please speak candidly with our team. 

How often can I have this type of massage?
Following your procedure, one of our plastic surgeons will discuss how frequently you should schedule lymphatic massages to expedite your healing and promote comfort. 

How will I feel after my massage?
Many patients feel very relaxed after a massage and some fall asleep during them. As the toxins from your body begin to release after your massage, we recommend drinking ample amounts of water to prevent nausea.
