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.
