Pre-Surgical MLD clears out lymphatic pathways of all stuck cellular waste so the body then has the capacity to effectively handle the extra cellular debris caused by surgery. The normal lumpahtic flow is between 10-12 beats per minute, but with MLD the rate can increase to 100-120 beats per minute! Typically, doctors will recommend 3-5 treatements the week prior to your surgery.
Post-Surgical MLD keeps the lymphatic pathways open and moving efficiently to remove all the cellular debris caused by surgery.
Post-Surgical MLD has many benefits including but not limited to:
These pictures were taken just 24 hours post surgery. Notice there is very little if any swelling and NO bruising. At 3 weeks post-op, surgeon mentioned he was much farther along in healing than most patients, which is typical for those receiving both pre-op and post-op MLD.
Picture was taken 1 week post surgery. Notice the extent of the bruising and swelling down the arm. You can tell the bruises are old due to the yellowish discoloration, however, the bruises were present within 24 hours post surgery.
