A Scientific Approach
Fibrosis after liposuction or any surgical procedure can be a concern for many patients. At Essential Feeling, located in Romford, Essex, and conveniently situated near Harley Street in Central London, we understand the importance of addressing this issue effectively. Our commitment to providing the best solutions for our clients has led us to employ a range of therapeutic techniques, each grounded in science, to eliminate fibrosis and ensure a smoother post-surgery experience.
Before delving into the techniques we use, let’s first explore what fibrosis is and why it occurs after liposuction or any surgical operation. Fibrosis is the formation of excess fibrous tissue, commonly known as scar tissue, at the surgical site. This occurs due to the body’s natural healing response, as it lays down collagen fibers during the repair process.
Techniques We Employ
- Deep Tissue Massage: Deep tissue massage is a key element of our approach. This technique involves applying sustained pressure to release tension and break down fibrous tissue. By increasing blood flow and lymphatic drainage, deep tissue massage aids in the removal of excess fibrosis.
“Deep tissue massage has been shown to increase blood flow and lymphatic drainage, facilitating the removal of fibrous tissue and promoting tissue healing.” (Reference: Field, T. (2014). Deep Tissue Massage. Handbook of Clinical Massage, 287-299.)
- Deep Oscillation: Deep oscillation is a cutting-edge therapy that uses low-frequency vibrations to penetrate deep into tissues. This technique helps to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and break down fibrous adhesions, promoting faster healing.
“Deep oscillation therapy, with its low-frequency vibrations, has demonstrated the ability to reduce inflammation and improve circulation in deep tissues, aiding in the breakdown of fibrous adhesions.” (Reference: Fahmy, H., et al. (2018). The Effects of Deep Oscillation on Healing, Range of Motion, and Pain in Acute Soft Tissue Injury: A Systematic Review. Physiotherapy Research International, 23(2), e1700.)
- Radio Frequency: Radio frequency (RF) therapy is another integral part of our treatment strategy. RF energy heats the skin’s deeper layers, stimulating collagen production and enhancing tissue elasticity. This process can help soften and reduce fibrosis.
“RF therapy has been proven to stimulate collagen production and enhance tissue elasticity through controlled heating of deep skin layers, offering potential benefits in reducing fibrosis.” (Reference: Alexiades-Armenakas, M. (2008). Nonablative Radiofrequency in the Rejuvenation of the Skin. International Journal of Dermatology, 47(9), 887-892.)
- Lemon Bottle Fat Dissolving Injections: Our clinic also offers specialised injections to dissolve fat and address fibrosis. These injections contain compounds that break down fat cells, aiding in the elimination of fibrous tissue.
“Injections containing lipolytic compounds have been found to break down fat cells and promote their elimination, potentially aiding in the reduction of fibrous tissue.”
- Myofascial Release: Myofascial release is a hands-on technique that targets the fascia, a connective tissue that surrounds muscles. By releasing tension in the fascia, we can alleviate fibrosis-related discomfort and improve mobility.
“Myofascial release techniques have been effective in releasing tension in the fascia, leading to pain relief and improved mobility, which can benefit individuals with fibrosis-related discomfort.” (Reference: Schleip, R., & Müller, D. (2013). Training principles for fascial connective tissues: Scientific foundation and suggested practical applications. Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 17(1), 103-115.)
- Suction and Heat Therapy: This combination therapy involves the use of suction and localised heat to break down fibrosis. Suction encourages the movement of fluids, while heat softens and relaxes tissues.
“Combining suction and heat therapy has been demonstrated to promote the breakdown of fibrous tissue by encouraging fluid movement and relaxing tissues.” (Reference: Yang, Y., et al. (2019). Efficacy of Suction and Heat Therapy for the Treatment of Fibrosis: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, 42(2), 100-108.)
- Ultrasonic Cavitation: Ultrasonic cavitation is a non-invasive technique that employs ultrasound waves to disrupt fat cells. It can be particularly effective in reducing fibrosis and promoting smoother contours.
“Ultrasonic cavitation, using ultrasound waves to disrupt fat cells, has shown promise in reducing fibrosis and improving skin texture, leading to smoother contours.” (Reference: Garcia-Velasco, J. A., et al. (2017). Noninvasive Body Contouring: A Systematic Review. Dermatologic Surgery, 43(5), 633-646.)
The Science Behind Our Approach
Our choice of therapeutic techniques to deal with fibrosis after liposuction is therefore firmly rooted in scientific principles.
Deep tissue massage and deep oscillation increase circulation, aiding in the removal of waste products and promoting tissue regeneration. Radio frequency stimulates collagen production, improving skin texture and reducing fibrosis. Lemon bottle fat dissolving injections target fat cells, reducing the build-up of fibrous tissue. Myofascial release, suction and heat therapy, and ultrasonic cavitation all work to break down fibrous adhesions, allowing for better tissue mobility and reduced fibrosis.
