Any time you go through surgery, it's so important to have adequate wound care. Whether this is just massage therapy or a surgical procedure, it's so vital to receive quality care and treatment. Post- surgery massages are a vital part of this process, but can often be taken for granted. Let's go into all the benefits that you receive from post- surgery massage.
What is a Post-Operative Massage?
Post-operative massage treatments are designed to help with the recovery process following surgery. The therapist will work gently, with a focus on increasing circulation and lymph drainage.
In many cases, massage therapists are not permitted to work directly on the surgical site as it needs time to heal. Therapists will spend time working on the surrounding areas while carefully avoiding any contact that may cause pain or discomfort.

You can look good, but if you feel sore and pain all over your body, it’s harder to be confident.

Benefits Of A Post-Cosmetic Surgery Massage
There are dozens of reasons why you should take advantage of massage therapy after surgery. In the medical world, massage therapy is increasingly considered a low cost, simple, and effective nursing intervention.
There are several benefits of post-cosmetic surgery massage therapy:
You'll notice a difference in your recovery time if you receive the massage earlier in your healing process. Here are some common areas that benefit from post-surgery massages:
Arms/shoulders: Arthritis or chronic shoulder tension is often caused by muscle spasms and tightness in the shoulders and arms. A post-surgery massage works especially well on these areas because it relieves tension, which reduces the pain of arthritis or chronic shoulder pain.
Back: Post-surgery care is crucial following any abdominal surgery or other major procedure that's done through a large incision such as laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery, especially if you're having a hernia repair or a hysterectomy. With these procedures, your body needs extra support following surgery to ensure that the wound heals correctly and does not become.
Research has shown that post-surgery massages can help ease swelling, pain, and stress, which is why you may be recommended to receive one. Of course, it’s always important to ask your doctor whether a post-surgery massage is right for you and if so, how soon after the procedure they recommend receiving one. After all, you want to make sure that you don’t do anything that could potentially cause complications. Post-surgery massages are safe and effective as long as they are done in a professional manner, so don’t be afraid to schedule one if your doctor recommends it!
