Massage after tummy tuck

Dear Sherri

Massage after tummy tuck

I would always advise you to follow the instructions of your surgeon. They know how they get the best results with their surgery.
However, I do not advise my patients to have massage therapy after a tummy tuck with lipo.
Best wishes

Your plastic surgeon will always appear be your resource when it comes to these types of questions;  massage therapy is certainly not a universally utilized technique after tummy tuck surgery. Best wishes.
