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.

"All of the comments said about Dr. Brissett are so true and more. I could go on for hours about Dr. Brissett. One very important distinguish criteria having to do with his practice is his staff. Having been married to the medical community I’ve had the opportunity to interact with a wide range medical staff and the staff will many times make or break even the best physicians. Andrea, Regina, Rachel and Roxana are not only personable and knowledgeable but they genuinely care about the patients. I hate to tell you how many years I’ve seen Dr. Brissett but he has almost 0 turn over during the time I have known him and I can totally understand why. Houston does have great doctors but they’re not as accessible/understanding of their patients needs/ etc. if The staff is not good."- M.F. / Google / Jul 19, 2018
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.
