Protocol of Post-Operative treatment
In the case of post-liposuction recoveries, is even more important, the intervention of the physiotherapist in an immediately way to surgery.
Due to the absorption of fat by the subcutaneous cannula, various injuries occur in blood vessels and lymphatics, thus producing a considerable postoperative edema.
In the case of the liposuction, the accelerated postoperative recovery (APR) will follow the following protocol:
HOSPITAL IMMEDIATE PHYSIOTHERAPY: developed in a very individualized and specific way for each patient, it consists in PRESSOTHERAPY and MANUAL LIMPHATIC DRAINAGE in the hospital. The patient will begin the recovery within a few hours of the intervention, if the surgeon and physical therapist believe it is possible; will be held the first session of PRESSOTHERAPY. The next day will begin with the MLD, usually on the skin of the patient, although in some cases these early sessions of drainage may be above the girdle, in order to give you a little more time to the skin, to settle back on the subcutaneous tissue.
