I have consulted two plastic surgeons about having Vaser done. The first doctor didn't mention anything about having lymphatic massages after the surgery; but the second doctor told me that I should have 3 to 6 six of them. They do not have a massage therapist at their location. They have a list of places to go to for them. So I do not think the doctor is suggesting it because it is a money maker. I will be happy to spend the money to have them done, if it is really worth it.
Do Lymphatic Massages Really Help After Vaser Lipo?

I do not routinely recommend lymphatic massage. It feels good but I do not know of any strong scientific studies regarding its efficacy.
