Hey ladies, I am wanting to hear from you on whether you believe lymphatic massage was helpful in your  recovery.  Doctors answers are split on if it is beneficial so I wanted to get your opinion.  I need to release a little swelling on my incision line from my tummy tuck and from lipo.  Thanks for your input!

Hi!

I have it done once and it felt so nice my doc recommends because it helps circulation and also to break up those hard spots caused by the lipo. I will be getting my second one soon.

Thanks Cat! That is what I need it for, I've got hard spots on my right hip that I can't budge with self massage! I'm going to get one this week! Did you swell after yours? How far post op were you when you had your first one?

Anyone?? I had this posted on liposuction but the boards are not active over there. Anyone here have lymphatic massage and what were the results? I'm 9 weeks post op with some resistant hard spots on my hips that need to be released.
