What is the protocol for patient aftercare after surgery, whether facial lift, eye surgery, post plastic surgery of breasts, body? Is a referral to a lymphatic drainage therapist part of the post healing strategy?

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy Post Surgery?
A referral for a lymphatic drainage specialist is not a routtine part of every cosmetic surgery I perform. Some procedures may be associated with more swelling than others and I offer it as an option to some of my patients who undergo body contouring surgery.
