Congratulations! You are planning or have just had plastic surgery to improve your appearance. Isn’t it frustrating that before you can begin to enjoy your new face or body, you have to spend days or weeks feeling swollen and bruised? Board Certified Plastic Surgeons in San Diego, across southern California, and in Tijuana, Mexico refer their clients to me to reduce the heavy, tight feeling that post-operative swelling can bring. Even if you’re not my client, you can still benefit from this advice! In the Plastic Surgery Recovery Handbook, I share my top tips picked up from my training as a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, conversations with fellow therapists, presentations at lymphedema conferences, books, research studies and helpful hints shared by my clients about what has worked best for them.
