MLD is recommended prior to surgery to prepare the tissues for surgery, alleviate existing edema and stimulate the immune system, which additionally accelerates the production of lymphocytes, induces a state of relaxation and promotes a parasympathetic response.    

MLD may also be performed as soon as 24 hours after surgery.  The benefits of post-surgery MLD are to alleviate post-surgery swelling, stimulate temporary rerouting of lymphatics, reduce pain and alleviate spasms.  MLD can help reverse the buildup of toxins resulting from medication and immobilization.  Furthermore, in stimulating the immune system, it helps prevent post-surgical infections, improves skin regeneration and wound healing, and may help to prevent the formation of hypertrophic or keloid scars.  MLD can alleviate bruising and inflammation in half of the time it may have taken otherwise. 

For best results, a series of treatments are recommended.
