The post-operative treatment alter surgery is Essentials but it is even more important when the face is affected, and that is why we will have an accelerated post-operative recovery, specially and thoroughly designed for and early treatment is this delicate area
We will get started with HOSPITAL IMMEDIATE PHYSIOTHERAPY (HIP) the next day of the intervention. The first MLD (MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE) will be done, being the main part of the protocol because of the complexity of facial anatomy.
The face lymphatic vessels are parallel to facial and jugular veins. but in its way we can also find ganglionic groups: preauticular ganglions or parotid which receive lymph from the front and the outer half of the eyelids, and facial ganglions which carry lymph from the inner part of the eyelids, the nose, the lips and the chin. From both, lymph is carried to the jugular ganglions of the neck, which make a chain around each of the jugular veins and finally drain lymph form veins.
