Help support your body’s healing time when you choose this treatment option. Lymphedema is an uncomfortable condition that is either part of an existing health concern or the result of various types of medical procedures. It can cause discomfort and pain, and if left untreated, can result in limited mobility and affect one’s mental well-being.
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) sessions can act as a beneficial procedure if you have or think you might develop lymphedema.
When you choose a procedure at Salameh Plastic Surgery, you don’t have to search for “manual lymphatic drainage near me.” We can take care of you at Salameh MedSpa to help minimize any swelling and keep your lymphatic system clear. Schedule a consultation today to learn more about how MLD may benefit you.
WHAT IS MLD?
Surgery and certain medical conditions can cause fluid to build up in your lymphatic system, the system that eliminates the body’s waste. But when there’s swelling or a buildup, your lymphs can’t get rid of it so easily, causing a condition called lymphedema. That’s where manual lymphatic drainage near the surgical site is beneficial and in many cases, essential.
While lymphedema will only occur near the site of a procedure, a proper manual lymphatic drainage will be performed on the entire lymphatic system for thorough waste removal.
when to considerMANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
If you have recently undergone procedures at Salameh Plastic Surgery, we will usually recommend considering lymphatic drainage sessions within a few days to a few weeks following your procedure, and potentially prior to it, as well.
This will differ from patient to patient and will be discussed in your post-procedure care plan.
Lymphatic drainage after cosmetic procedures can help address swelling, discomfort, and safely aid your body’s natural regeneration of tissues and cells. We may also recommend this treatment a few days before your procedure to help prepare your body accordingly.

How long do MLD sessions take?
Your manual lymphatic drainage session will take anywhere from 15-20 minutes, on average. This timing may differ depending on which procedure you had.
What post-care is needed after this treatment?
Generally, lymphatic drainage sessions are recommended as part of an integrative approach to post-operative care after any procedure(s) with Dr. Salameh, particularly for the body and the face.
After such procedures, the lymphatic system does take time to recover, and a manual lymphatic drainage treatment plan can help expedite your recovery time.
After your MLD treatments, we recommend drinking plenty of fluids, choosing healthy food, and moving your body. Dr. Salameh will discuss your individualized care plan with you, as well.
