Post-Operative Holistic Healing
Healing from liposuction surgery is physical and emotional. To address our patients’ recovery process from a holistic approach, Neinstein Plastic Surgery offers alternative wellness therapies that blend seamlessly with mainstream medicine. Our therapist, Lizabeth Gottsegen, is a licensed, internationally recognized manual lymphatic drainage specialist. The treatment she provides starts soon after surgery. It is a gentle, relaxing, powerful technique that helps eliminate swelling and allows patients to heal faster.
Lizabeth couples her lymphatic drainage massage with aromatherapy and integrated meditative techniques used to guide patients through a deeper restorative healing process. Scientific data has shown these mindful practices are highly effective for speeding up the post operative recoveryrate. Studies have also proven this style of meditation to be beneficial for pain management on various levels.
