This is why we have our therapists that are of great importance to give the best care to our patients and to become the number one clinic in South Florida. Zuleika Munibes is one of them, who in his work puts great dedication in the recovery of the patient.

Post Surgery Massage
Combined ultrasound with lymphatic drainage. The first is the deep heat and helps reduce inflammation and make the vasodilation. Then we do the lymphatic drainage, which seeks to drain the lymph that liquid fluid to drain more quickly. How much time after the surgery we expect to start the massage? The lipo enables that massages begin even the other day. Sometimes some patients prefer to wait two or three days to avoid pain in the process. In the tummy tuck massages are around a week later.
What amount of massage recommended for adequate post-operative recovery?
The massage should be twice per week with 45-minute each section. We recommend around six to ten massages, depending on each patient. Zuleika Munibes says, that occasionally she receive patients who are needing attention for having encapsulated breast. To eliminate this breast capsule is a similar procedure with ultrasound and lymphatic drainage for moms who are in stage 1, 2 and 3, with positive results. Stage of most advanced must be treated with surgery. Post-surgical massage are very important, they reduce healing time, hematomas are eliminated in shortest time, the patient feels less pain, skin and tissues are hydrated and improves the blood circulation. Our therapist says that this type of massage cannot make them anyone, that this is a very exact profession and that if it is not performed with due knowledge can arise complications in patients.
