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.

"67 Years Young - Seeing a doctor doesn't get better than this. I have been travelling from New York and now Maine once a year for at least 10 years so that Dr Brissett can maintain my youthful appearance since he did my face lift. The lift was amazing - no swelling and no bruising. How many people can brag about that? The results were so amazing ( nobody even knew I had one - no scars ) - everyone knew I looked great but they didn't know how I did it. So, when you have such an amazing doctor - why look elsewhere? He is the greatest!! I have total confidence in his work. And, he is always so cheerful and caring. And - he has a very caring staff that has been with him for years."- D. / RealSelf / May 22, 2018
"Ethical plastic surgeon - Dr. Brissett is incredibly professional and highly skilled. His office staff is also very warm and welcoming.I went in for a Kybella consultation. Dr. Brissett actually erred on the side of saying I didn't need it, which I found to be very ethical (compared to most doctors who will just try to upsell you). I insisted that I wanted it done, and we were both pleasantly surprised by how well the..."- K. / RealSelf / May 22, 2018
"Reconstruction of Nose - I was referred to Dr. Brissett for reconstruction surgery (flap procedure) on my nose after skin cancer was removed. I was very anxious about the procedure. Dr. Brissett took time to address all of my concerns. His kind, calm energy and faith made me feel like I was the most special patient he had! I trust him completely and the surgery results were fantastic!"- J.S. / RealSelf / May 14, 2018
"Dr. Brissett Saved My Face After Cancer! - I was told by my dermatologist that I had skin cancer on my nose and would need a Mohs surgeon to remove it. My Mohs Surgeon then told me that it was possible I would need plastic surgery to replace what she was going to have to remove from my nose (which was most of my nose). She referred me to Dr. Brissett who made me a promise the very first time I met him. He told me that his goal and..."- C. / RealSelf / Apr 30, 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.
