After Cosmetic Surgery: Spa-Like Postoperative Care

Many people think that the hardest part of cosmetic surgery is the surgery itself. But most operations require local anesthesia, so the procedure is over and done with before you know it. That makes the weeks and sometimes months of postoperative care vital to ensuring a safe and smooth recovery.

The practice of Anthony N. Dardano, DO, FACS, located in Boca Raton, Florida, offers intensive postoperative care to speed up the recovery process and comfort you while you heal. Let us serve you in a relaxing, spa-like environment and provide you the utmost care you deserve. 

After your surgery 

Congratulations on completing your surgery! You’re probably excited to see your results and get back to your everyday life. 

Patience is crucial when it comes to healing from your surgery. It’s essential that you slow down during this time and focus on rest and caring for yourself while your body heals. Think of it as some added R&R time.

Everyone’s body is different and heals at a different rate. Here are some general guidelines for recovery time for some of the surgeries we offer:

Although Dr. Dardano may allow you to go back to work, your body will still be healing for many months before it is considered “back to normal.” Undergoing some of our relaxing post-operative services can help minimize pain while making your recovery more comfortable.

Ultrasound therapy 

If you’re a parent, you’ve probably heard of and may have even had an ultrasound. The same technology is used in ultrasound therapy — the practice of using soundwaves to promote tissue healing and pain relief. For over eighty years, ultrasound therapy has been used in physical therapy as a non-invasive way to heal the pain caused by a variety of health conditions.

Dr. Dardano may suggest this treatment for you as an effort to jumpstart your body’s natural healing process, so you recover faster and more comfortably. During your procedure, Dr. Dardano applies a gel to your skin and uses a handheld device to penetrate soundwaves into your skin. 

You may feel a gentle pulsing or nothing at all during the treatment, as he works the vibrations deep into your tissues to decrease inflammation. Dr. Dardano keeps the handheld device moving the whole time during your 5-10 minute treatment.

Lymphatic massage

Your lymphatic system contains tissues and organs that work to purify your body from toxins and harmful chemicals. After surgery, your body may accumulate fluid and swelling in your lymph nodes. Lymphatic massage works to remove fluid buildup with techniques like stretching, cupping, skin compressions, and sweeping movements.

Dr. Dardano doesn’t just focus on massaging one area. Many parts of your body must be incorporated into the massage to help circulate your lymphatic system. Your primary lymph nodes are located in the neck, armpits, and groin, while most of your lymphatic system drains by your left shoulder. 

Benefits of post-operative care

Healing from your surgery isn’t an easy task. Your body is especially vulnerable during these times, so give yourself the care it deserves with ultrasound therapy and a lymphatic massage. In addition to relaxation and improved wellness, some benefits of these treatments include:
