Lymphatic drainage after liposuction or other procedures such as fat injections for the Brazilian Butt Lift will help reduce or prevent hardness or lumpiness to the areas treated. Post surgical lymph edema is caused by inflammation and trauma from the cannula moving under the skin. Channels are formed by the cannula that can fill up with fluid and the tissue becomes swollen. Manual lymphatic drainage helps to move the fluid by gently pumping it back into the lymph vessels. Manual lymphatic drainage will help patients get the best possible results. Manual lymphatic drainage reduces healing time for bruises by cleansing the inter-cellular spaces where old blood cells and waste products accumulate.
