Aesthetic treatments after plastic surgery have a very important relationship with the patient’s recovery. Above all, in the postoperative period of certain procedures, some aesthetic treatments are indicated, aiming at the correct accommodation and healing of the tissues.

Therefore, the lack of performing these treatments can directly impact the final results.

The good result and the good recovery of a plastic surgery do not depend only on the good technique and professionalism of the plastic surgeon. Post-surgical aesthetic treatments are also very important to achieve the expected result. After the procedures, it is essential to avoid factors that can cause complications and to take some special care.

In some plastic surgeries, skin dislocation can occur, and swelling can usually occur. This swelling must be dealt with correctly so that there are no irregularities in the skin, nodules or even fibrosis (internal scarring that can be prominent).

The best way to treat this swelling is through some aesthetic techniques, which allows for higher quality results. That’s why it’s important to follow all medical recommendations during the postoperative period.

Recommended cosmetic procedures after surgery
Through the options of aesthetic treatments indicated during the postoperative period of plastic surgery, we will highlight in this text lymphatic drainage, ultrasound and radiofrequency. But it is important to understand that these techniques are recommended after some specific types of surgeries.

Liposuction, abdominoplasty and facelift, for example, require some lymphatic drainage sessions, as recommended by a doctor.

Lymphatic drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage is essential in the postoperative period of plastic surgery and must be performed at least 48 hours after surgery. The earlier the lymphatic drainage is started, the lower the probability of fluid accumulation at the site and the faster the patient’s recovery.

Massage makes the skin regain a healthier and more normal appearance, as the technique aims to capture the interstitial fluid and make it return to the bloodstream, through smooth, slow and rhythmic movements that promote tissue detoxification and improved oxygenation and cellular nutrition.

Drainage decreases the likelihood of fibrosis. But it is important to remember that all procedures indicated in the postoperative period require the permission of the plastic surgeon. Therefore, the guidelines given by him must be strictly followed.

Generally, 10 to 20 lymphatic drainage sessions are indicated in the first phase after surgery. But, who will evaluate the need for more or less sessions is your doctor, according to the evolution of your post-surgical period.

Ultrasound
Ultrasound is an equipment that emits sound waves (mechanical vibrations), framed in frequencies 3MHz. In the area of ​​aesthetics, treatment with analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous action is used, helping to break down accumulated fibrosis in the dermal connective tissue (cellular micromassage). It is always used respecting the healing phases of the surgery.

Radio frequency
The Radiofrequency device is great for treating and preventing adhesions and sagging of the skin after surgery. The result is satisfactory, as the collagen fibers that are heated contract, retracting the skin.

Induced heating increases fibroblast cell metabolism and collagen remodeling. Therefore, this provides a firmer, tighter skin appearance in the long run.

Surgical tapping

Taping is an elastic and contensive bandage that has been widely used in plastic surgery, bringing numerous advantages to patients in the postoperative period, preserving the mobility of the body and reducing any chances of complications after the surgical procedure.

The main benefits of taping
In addition to preserving the body’s mobility and reducing postoperative complications, the application of taping also offers a number of benefits to patients, such as more comfort and reduced pain during surgery recovery.
The use of taping also helps to control and reduce edema (swelling) and prevent ecchymosis (the purple that appears on the skin after surgery). Another benefit of taping is the reduction in the number of postoperative physical therapy sessions, in addition to the reduction in the appearance of fibrosis (scarring that forms internally after surgery).

There are other types of aesthetic treatments after plastic surgery that your doctor may recommend. It is important to remember that plastic surgery will only have the best end result, making an adequate postoperative treatment from the beginning of your recovery.
