  • Hardness after lipo can last for several months up to a year, and swelling stays for around 6-8 months as it is the procedure's outcome. 
  • Lymphatic drainage massage helps to reduce swelling and hardness of your skin where liposuction has been performed. 

How to perform this Massage: 

  • you should always gently tug and stretch the skin without rubbing it. 
  • Use only mild touches; and avoid deep tissue massage. 
  • The Massage should be done in the direction of the lymphatic system's flow, i.e., from wrist to shoulder and from the ankle to knee.
