Look Your Best

When you invest in cosmetic surgery such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, you want to look and feel amazing. However scar tissue can build up as the body heals, resulting in hard, lumpy and uneven skin. Not quite what you had in mind after surgery! The good news – we have treatments to help smooth everything back out and have you looking like a million bucks in no time!

Increased lymphatic drainage and blood circulation helps to eliminate toxic buildup and improves mobility

Improve Recovery Time

Post-surgical treatments facilitate the delivery of micro-nutrients to the surgical site so the body heals faster 

Smooth and Soften Skin

The reduction of scar tissue and improved collagen structure leads to a smoother and softer appearance

No matter what stage of recovery you are in, massage will be of a benefit to you. A post-surgical massage is a gentle form of massage that increases blood flow and promotes recovery by targeting the lymphatic system.  The lymphatic system helps process waste and absorbs fluids. After surgery, these fluids can harden, leading to scar tissue, fibrosis, and limited range of motion. A post-surgical massage prevents and treats this hardening of fluids by reducing inflammation and promoting circulation to the affected area. 

  • Faster soft tissue repair
  • Reduces scar tissue and fibrosis
  • Improves pain and immflamation

While the heart continuously pumps blood through the blood vessels, the lymphatic system relies on the movement of smooth muscles to transport fluid through the lymph vessels. After surgery, the lymph nodes commonly tend to swell and become filled with fluid. This can become extremely uncomfortable and even painful if not addressed. Our lymph detox treatment is designed to drain this excess fluid and move it out of the lymph nodes, improving recovery time. You will typically start lymphatic detox treatments a few days after surgery. 

  • Reduces swelling and imflammation
  • Detoxes the body
  • Accelerate healing time

Endermologie is a non surgical procedure and is the first cellulite treatment to be approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Using a small device that alternately massages and suctions the skin, it softens hardened fat trapped underneath the collagen fibers and then flushes it out via the normal excretory pathways. Originally developed during the 1980s in to treat burns and loosen scar tissue, it also helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, increase circulation, and improve skin tone and skin radiance. Endermologie is a fantastic treatment option if you still have stubborn scar tissue and cellulite several weeks after surgery.

  • Smooths out appearance
  • EIiminates toxins
  • Relieves minor muscular aches

Shockwave Therapy (or extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT)) has been used to break down kidney stones for decades. Recently it has been used to targets fat fibers with powerful sound waves, restructuring and remodeling the underlying structure. Our highly skilled practitioners use an FDA cleared soundwave device to direct vibrating waves against your fibrous tissue, breaking it down and allowing your body to safely expel it. Shockwave treatments are usually paired with massage and like endermologie are great at getting rid of stubborn scar tissue and cellulite even if its been several weeks since surgery. 

  • Increase skin elasticity
  • Stimulate blood and lymph circulation
  • Remodel collagen within the skin

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need post-surgical services?

Surgery can be very hard on the body. The first issue to deal with is swelling. Post-surgical swelling is caused by inflammation and trauma from the cannula (the instrument that sucks out the fat) moving under the skin. Channels formed by the cannula fill up with fluid and the tissue swells. Without proper aftercare, inflammation can evolve into fibrosis (a hardening of the tissue) or a seroma (pocket of fluid), resulting in hard, lumpy skin at the surgical site. Many doctors prescribe post surgical care after liposuction to make sure their patients get the best possible results from their procedure.

When should I start post-surgical services?

The earlier you start post-surgical treatments, the better your recovery. Lymph detox (also called pressotherapy) and massage can start 5-7 days after your surgery. However, no matter where you are in your recovery process we will design a plan that works for you. 

Which services are right for me?

We evaluate every client on a case by case basis and determine a treatment plan just for them. At Relinquish you purchase a package of post-surgical services that includes any of our treatments above. We create a plan. and then evaluate your progress and adjust as necessary after every visit to ensure you are getting the best results possible.

How often should I come in for post-surgical services?

The first week you start post-surgical we suggest coming in 2-3 times to kick start the healing process. From there we will start reducing in frequency to weekly as long as you are healing nicely.

How many sessions do I need and what is the price?

The number you need depends on your situation and body, as there are a number of different factors that can influence healing. For instance, if the only area of liposuction was the legs, knees, or flanks, 1-5 sessions may be enough to get great results. People getting liposuction to the abdomen often find they require up to 12 sessions. The more areas you do the more sessions you are likely to need. This is why we have patients come in for a free consultation to design a treatment plan that works for them. Sessions may be paid for individually or in discounted packages. You can see our pricing table below.  

I had my surgery over a month ago. Is it too late to start post-surgical services?

Not at all! The healing process after these types of procedure is several months. If it has been over a month since your procedure you can still get the smoothing benefits. Has it been over six months and the surgical site is extremely hard and lumpy? Then we recommend checking with your doctor to rule out fibrosis or seroma. If everything is cleared medically then we can still help you smooth out your results. However, the earlier you come the better your results. 

Do I need a referral from my doctor?

While many doctors recommend post-surgical treatments and we partner with several plastic surgeons in the Atlanta area, you do not need a referral to come see us. So book your free consultation today!
