MS Manuela Shala

Abdominoplasty and the Manuela Shala Method

Immediately after abdominoplasty surgery, one of the most preponderant aspects that often worries patients is the management of oedema. Oedema is swelling caused by an accumulation of fluid within the interstitial spaces.

Oedema is the first inflammatory response with which the body deals with surgical trauma, and in abdominoplasty large muscle and fascial compartments are dislodged. During the operation, many lymphatic vessels are severed, which is why a specific elastocompressive tummy tuck must be worn immediately after the operation. The reabsorption time of the swelling is very variable, ranging from 30 days post-surgery to a few months, and often the patient feels discomfort and concern because, even the aesthetic aspect is affected, together with the annoying heaviness under the umbilical cord or sometimes even of the suprapubic region. Obviously the swelling as well as the reabsorption, depend on the person's own factors and on complications that may have occurred, for example a very flaccid skin typical of post bariatric diastases will produce more oedema than those with a more compact skin.

But don't get discouraged at all!

There are specific, lymph-draining massages that the practitioner can perform in agreement with the plastic surgeon. One of the most decisive and comprehensive massages is precisely the Manuela Shala Method. After the operation in agreement with your plastic surgeon, you can undergo lymphatic drainage massage sessions according to the Manuela Shala method and help your organism to eliminate toxins, waste and bad fluid.

And not only that!

Manuela Shala's method will not only help get rid of bad fluids from your body, it will also help your healing. In fact, lymph drainage massages have an important feature in helping post-operative healing
