Any surgical intervention, involves an assault in greater or lesser degree to the body that breaks the internal homoeostasis and requires recovery time. This time can range from a few days to several weeks in major interventions.


Manual lymphatic drainage is very important in treatment and care after cosmetic surgery.

authorized by the surgeon who performed the operation. Usually they are begun on the 4th or 5th day after surgery.
