Liposuction removes fatty tissue between the muscles and the skin in the selected treatment area. As a result, the skin and subcutaneous tissue are separated, which is perceived by patients as numbness and sometimes also the impression of “foreign skin”. After about 3-6 weeks, self-regeneration occurs and touch sensitivity returns. In the period of convalescence, the key role is played by lymphatic drainage, which improves the lymphatic efficiency of the body, reduces swellings and shapes the body. Full-body massages cause breakdown of fat globules and their natural burning by the body.
If the liposuction has been subjected to a large area of the body, massages guarantee even skin adhesion, without thickening and unevenness. Due to the flaccidity of the skin after liposuction, the use of mechanical drainage can have the opposite effect and instead of stimulating the lymphatic system, additionally stretch and deform the skin. The first manual lymphatic drainage can be performed 3 days after the liposuction procedure and 5 days after the abdominoplasty procedure (abdominoplasty). Massage does not require prior preparation and is not painful. A series of 10 drains is recommended 1-2 times a week.
