Lymphatic drainage speeds up the healing process in patients who have recently had, or are planning to have surgery (including cosmetic enhancements). It aids the recovery process by removing toxins and reducing the swelling caused by the surgery trauma, helping the patient feel more like their true-self, sooner. The physical and wider well-being benefits of MLD after surgery means that MLD performed by experienced specialists (MLDUK registered) is part of prescribed recovery programmes by many healthcare providers.
