One of my favorite things about working at Spa One is having the opportunity to help treat patients of The Plastic Surgery Group. Having any surgery is a major decision and a lot goes into the pre-operative process. What most people don’t know is that we invest just as much time and care in our patients post-operatively to ensure they have the most successful recovery possible.
Whether you are undergoing a facelift, breast augmentation or a full-blown mommy makeover, we offer a number of different services to help you look and feel your best after surgery. One of the most beneficial services we offer is lymphatic drainage massage therapy at our Albany, NY, med spa.
How does lymphatic massage help recovery after plastic surgery?
Lymphatic massage is a very customized form of massage that is specifically meant to be performed after surgery or an injury. In the weeks after surgery, you will experience significant swelling, bruising and fluid accumulation in your body. To help alleviate these symptoms and speed up your recovery process, we would recommend scheduling a weekly lymphatic massage for the first several weeks following your surgery.
These massages typically last an hour and cost about $105. They provide a variety of benefits, including:
- Reducing swelling
- Improving blood flow
- Detoxifying the body
- Alleviating overall pain and discomfort
Additionally, lymphatic massages help to regenerate tissue to reduce scarring.
What other Spa One services can help after plastic surgery?
In addition to taking advantage of post-surgical massage therapy, we also recommend patients meet with one of our estheticians to discuss overall skincare needs. For some patients, especially ones who have undergone facial procedures, they like to go over tips and tricks for hiding bruising that may linger a little bit longer than we would like.
Our estheticians and makeup artists will go over techniques for covering your bruising as well as tips for maintaining your new look. We have several products we recommend including our SkinMedica® Scar Recovery Gel, our SkinCeuticals® Body Tightening Concentrate and our Jane Iredale® mineral pressed powders that allow for buildable coverage to hide bruises and keep skin looking flawless.
