POST OP SERVICES
Dr. Sharon provides postoperative care for men and women who undergo surgery. Post-op services include:
Drain removal: Drains are used for several different procedures, for example 360 liposuction. Depending on your type of surgery, drains are typically kept in for about 3 to 5 days. Our drain care includes cleaning the drain site and the skin around it with soap and water using gauze or a cotton swab. When the site is dry, new dressing is applied.
Stitch Removal: Stitch removal is determined by how well the area has healed and the extent of the surgery.
Wound management: Wounds are cared for with proper dressing and pain medicine to reduce the risk of infection. An untreated or improperly treated wound can have trouble healing or heal slower. At Dr. Sharon Aesthetic Medicine, we watch wounds closely and use techniques to promote the healing process and avoid future complications.
Post-op massage: A postoperative massage is a gentle massage technique that increases blood flow and helps promote recovery by targeting the lymphatic system. This system is responsible for processing waste and absorbing fluids and after surgery, these liquids can harden which can be painful. This massage helps to break down those hardened elements to help ease postoperative discomforts.
Post-op massage and cavitation: To help further contour your body, a handheld radio frequency machine performs an ultrasonic cavitation that can be very effective in perfecting results. This method helps to smooth, tone and tighten skin after liposuction procedures may leave loose skin and lumpiness. Patients generally see an immediate change after the first session with ultimate results after 4 to 8 sessions.
Post-op massage and wood therapy: Wood therapy increases the breakdown of fat and fibrous cellulite, so that it can be eliminated naturally with other toxins through the lymphatic system. Wood therapy also has a firming effect on the skin, and it activates the production of elastin and collagen which promotes toning, sculpting and improved blood circulation.
Body sculpt massage: Body sculpting massages can begin 7-10 days after surgery depending on your physicians referral. This technique is used not only help amplify your new shape, it also helps with fluid buildup, inflammation and bruising.
