How can Lymphatic Drainage help you?

Post-operative care starts the moment the surgeon finishes your procedure. This involves taking care of the inflammation; taking any medication prescribed by your doctor; reducing excess of fluid to prevent seroma and fibrosis; and wound care to prevent infection. Our plastic surgery recovery & aftercare treatment specialises in helping with water retention, inflammation, fibrosis, seroma reduction and pain reduction.

Modestas, an osteopath here is incredible. Highly recommend. He is able to do basics well like sports therapy message up to and beyond complex osteo manipulations. He takes the time to understand the root problem and asks thorough questions each time to map what’s happening as he treats my persistent base of skull neck pain.

Best massage clinic I’ve ever been too, I’ve had a few massages with various staff but Zoltan was amazing. I felt better immediately and for the days after was less stressed. I’ve wanted to go back but have been in and out of town for work but in that time he has called me twice to check in and see how I was doing. I’m back in town now and first order of business was scheduling a new massage with him, highly recommend this clinic!Update from May 2023 - I have contributed to have nothing but an amazing experience at Perea Clinic. My sessions recently have been with Modestas and Stelios. Both have been phenomenal and I always leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. I highly recommend this clinic to everyone!

If massages are about relaxing and making you feel better, Stelios should get 10 stars! 5 is not enough! He knows what he is doing and my back cannot be happier after my sessions with him. Highly recommended.

SUMMARY: Angel-located clinic focused on osteopathy, phisiotherapy and so on… with excellent receptionists and very professional.RECOMMEND: Lilou Convert (Osteopath)I was limping for a week thinking something wrong was happening with my knee. I booked a session with Lilou and she asked me lots of questions to understand the issue. After an examination, she told me it was a muscular problem, rather than a knee one. She explained to me everything very clearly and how she was going to help me. She also provided me with some stretching exercises. After a few sessions and following her advice, I’m fully recovered. She is great and very knowledgeable. Can’t recommend her more. Thanks Lilou!

I've had a few appointments with Yaneth now and I have to say my experience has been great. Not only have I found the treatment very helpful, but Yaneth gives solid advise, makes me feel comfortable, and it feels like she always goes the extra mile to help me, even identifying a condition I didn't know I had and when I checked with my GP proved to be true. All the other staff I have come across have been extremely friendly and the premises is very clean. I definitely recommend the Perea Clinic.
I have been visiting Perea clinic, and getting medical massages from Stelios. I have many muscle problems and Stelios has been doing an excellent job. He is very helpful and professional, he explains every step before hand. Yes

F.A.Q. (frecuently asked questions)

Should I have a Lymphatic Drainage Massage after cosmetic surgery?

Yes, you should. Lymph massage makes the healing process faster, helps to avoid fibrosis, improves skin smoothness, prevents lumps, stimulates blood flow and drains excess fluids reducing swelling.

How many sessions of Lymphatic Drainage do I need?

It depends on the cosmetic surgery, how many areas you have treated and how well your body responds. On average, it can take between 5- 10 sessions. If you need help with conturing you will need additional sessions.

When can I come for my Lymphatic Drainage after surgery?

We recommend start the drainage 24/36 hour after the surgery. The earlier you can start, the easier to remove excess fluid and release pain. 

What is fibrosis?

After any type of surgery, the skin can build up adhesions and scars as part of the healing process. However, the body can abnormally increase the production Fibroblast (a main connective tissue cell present in the body) in the form of bands which connect two or more tissues causing hardness under the skin.

Your wound heals in stages. The healing process starts the instant your surgeon makes the incision. The acute stages of coagulation and inflammation can take minutes or days, whereas the proliferative and remodelling stages can take days, weeks or even more. Although various cell types are involved in fibrosis, it’s the fibroblast, the main character when we talk about wound remodelling and collagen deposition. Fibroblast plays an important role in creating and remodelling this extracellular tissue and in some cases, this excess fibrous tissue can be painful or disturb your body functions.

In other words, fibrosis is a set of imperfections that you can observe after liposuction and are described as painful hard lumps under your skin where liposuction has been done. It can also appear as large pores, tissue discoloration and uneven areas.

What are the symptoms of fibrosis?

Fibrosis post-op is characterised by:

  • Feeling of a radiating pain, in some cases it could be constant or get worse in some postures.
  • Thick and hard skin added to your scar tissue
  • Uneven skin
  • Local pain around the incision
  • Numbness or loss of light touch sensation
  • Pulling sensation on the area as you try to move or stretch
