About Lymphatic Massage
After a cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure performed by Houston, TX double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony E. Brissett, the face could be in need of some TLC. Medical Aesthetician Annie Christenson can help with manual lymphatic drainage massage. Through a series of manual manipulations, the body is detoxified and drained of metabolic waste to speed up healing, decrease pain and discomfort, encourage blood flow, and reduce tissue inflammation post-surgery. The lymphatic massage is a great way to boost the immune system, increase energy, and combat fatigue.
Lymph is a fluid that enters the lymphatic system through the lymphatic vessels. As it moves through the lymphatic system, it carries away the toxins allowing fresh nutrients to replace it. By removing the fluid, the body will be healthier and work more efficiently, especially after surgery.
"Dr. Brissett, If you ever have anyone who would like to talk to someone I would be happy to do so. Thank you for the wonderful care you have given me so far! You have been a blessing in my life and I am most grateful for you! May God continue to bless the work of your hands. Sincerely, AL"- AL / Other / Jun 15, 2017

The best candidates for lymphatic massage:
- Have recently had a cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure
- Suffer from pain, discomfort, or swelling
- Desire overall better health of skin
What to Expect
The patient will lie on his or her back and the medical provider will begin a very light touch, rhythmical massage. The lymph nodes will lightly be compressed at the clavicle to begin the flow. This treatment will cover the whole face with light to moderate pressure to thoroughly detoxify the face.
The massage is extremely relaxing and many patients will fall asleep during the treatment. Results are immediate so the patient will look and feel better. Following surgery, 1– 6 treatments are usually suggested to promote complete healing.
