What is post liposuction massage?

We will be guided by your surgeon as everyone is different and requires a plan specific to your personal healing and process. However, we are able to provide a mix of techniques used at varying intensity based on your recovery following your liposuction treatment.  We can combine manual lymphatic drainage with myofascial and deep tissue massage to break down any fatty deposits that are forming hard globules under your skin and aid toxin and fluid to be expelled by your body.


How does post lipo suction massage work?

To answer this, we’ll go backwards a bit and answer ‘what is liposuction?’ as this is the process from which you’re healing.  During your liposuction procedure, your surgeon will place a plastic suction tube under your skin and move this from one area to another under your skin to suck out excess fat.  This creates wounds that heal not just where the suction tube has been inserted, but also where your skin has been separated from your body in order to move the tube around and suck out this fat.

Part of your healing process can very often result in fibrosis which is where connective tissue will thicken and scar.  The result of this can be an uneven surface under your skin giving the appearance of ‘fatty’ lumps and bumps.  Obviously as everyone heals differently the visual effect of this is also different from person to person, but your surgeon will very often advise that you have a post surgery massage to break down some of this scar tissue  will be effective in getting the best possible results from your liposuction.

At Essential Feeling we use a combination of 3 different styles of massage depending on the conditions that we’re presented with and how you are healing as well as any specific advice your surgeon has given you to ensure you get the best finish from your plastic surgery.


What do the different types of massage do?

Myofascial release can help to prevent unsightly thick scar tissue from forming building up by separating the fibres from each other so that ridges and dimples are less able to develop.

Deep tissue massage can work in a similar way to myofascial release and breaks down scar tissue so that it can reform correctly.  This has the effect of evening out the pitting you will see in your skin and breaks down the fibrosis.

Lymphatic drainage will help your body detoxify and remove excess fluid that may be sitting in what can often be hard pockets under your skin.  This is a very gentle and therapeutic massage that uses soft rhythmic movements to move toxins in to your bloodstream so your body can expel them.

I’m having laser lipo, is this massage still recommended?

We’d always recommend that you take the advice of your doctor, however, laser lipo or lipolysis as it is know is non-invasive, but it uses the heat from the laser to ‘melt’ away pockets of fat such as love handles and double chins.  In this instance, your body is then left to metabolise (break this down) itself and expel it from your body.  For this reason we’d offer manual lymphatic drainage as this helps your body to deal with and drive out toxins naturally.


When should I start my post liposuction massage?

Your surgeon will give you the best advice on this so be sure to ask and to get a sign off.  However, most people tend to be told that 1 to 2 weeks following their operation is the best time to start coming. We wouldn’t recommend you come within 3 days of your surgery.


Is there a consultation process?

Yes.  If you have a computer, to save your treatment time, we’ll send you a consultation form to complete before you come along.  This form will remain confidential between you and your therapist.  You will need to sign the form to say that you are happy to go ahead with the treatment.


When you arrive we’ll chat through your consultation form to fully understand what you would like to get out of your session.


Where will I be treated?

Your post liposuction massage will be in a comfortable, calm treatment room with soft lighting.


After your consultation, your therapist will show you to your treatment room where you will undress to your lower underwear whilst the therapist is out of the room. You will then lie on the bed, cover yourself with 2 luxury towels & only then will your therapist re-enter the treatment room.


What will happen during the treatment?

During your lipo massage, your body will be covered at all times with soft towels, with the exception of the area you are having worked with deep tissue massage of course!  Your modesty will be maintained at all times throughout your massage treatment.


What do I do during a post lipo massage therapy treatment?

Make yourself comfortable. If your therapist wants you to adjust your position, he or she will either move you or will ask you to move as necessary. Otherwise, change your position anytime to make yourself more comfortable. A deep tissue massage is not particularly relaxing as it aims to correct tissue damage - you may therefore feel some temporary pain during your treatment.  If this is unbearable, please feel free to let your therapist know and they will adapt your treatment.


During a post lipo massage your body releases toxins. This process can mean that your body temperature can change at any time, so please do say if you become cold. Likewise, if the pressure is too light or hard, then please feel free to say as everyone is different.

How will I feel after a post lipo massage?

You may feel tired or relaxed after your massage, or even sometimes emotional, however, most people will then feel rejuvenated and full of energy.  You may experience some aches and pains for around 24 hours after your treatment as the body flushes the toxins that have been released.  In order to speed this process along, drink lots of water after your massage.


How often will I need a post lipo massage?

We recommend you speak with your consultant about this as they are more able to advise on your specific conditions.


Why would I not be able to have a massage?

There are a few conditions which mean post lipo massage would not be the best holistic therapy for you.  In this instance, we wouldn’t be able to treat you with deep tissue massage, but there are plenty of other therapies that would be more suitable and we can help and advise you in making the best choice.


The following conditions would not be suitable:

Infectious skin disease, rash, or open wounds

Immediately after surgery (within 3 days)
