A Massage BEFORE Surgery will NOT hurt the outcome of a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction
A Massage BEFORE Surgery will NOT hurt the outcome or cause complication with a Tummy Tuck and Liposuction.
After allowing for a week or so after surgery, you may find out that Lymphatic massage may reduce the swelling associated with liposuction. But - do it ONLY after checking with your surgeon.
Before is fine -- and give your surgeon the gift of a massage after your surgery so he can relax. (only kidding)
Massage is asafe before and after TT surgery
A massage should do wonders for your mental and physical well-being prior to a tummy tuck. I also think that a massage is an effective recovery tool after liposuction and tummy tuck. As soon as you feel comfortable lying flat (it may take a while after a TT) massage should be fine.
