Is it safe or recommended to have massage therapy after a tummy tuck with lipo? Will this help avoid that box look(no curves).

Post Operative Recommendations
Thank you for your question!
As part of my post-op instructions, I recommend my patients to gently massage the area to prevent the muscles and surrounding tissue from tightening up.
That being said, it is very important to follow your board-certified plastic surgeon's post-operative procedures. Whatever their technique may be, they know your body and your procedure intimately and will be able to provide the best advice for your specific case.
Best of luck
