When we refer to a post-operative treatment after an intervention of plastic surgery as a breast enlargement operation, a tummy tuck or liposuction, usually we speak of manual lymphatic drainage. However, there are other discomfort during recovery as back pain also should be treated.

Back pain

After surgery, you should rest in bed that may directly affect the spine. The body is not used to being at rest and tend to adopt postures of self-protection to prevent strain on the operated area. This posture increases the load on the back, shoulders and neck.

Therefore, in breast augmentation, tummy tucks and liposuction is common for patients presenting neck and back pain.

In addition, the first weeks after the operation is advised to sleep on your back and slightly built, which makes the rest position causing pain and tension.


Back Pain Treatment


To avoid these hassles and have a more comfortable postoperative recovery we include specific massage for your back muscle spasms that are made with a pillow under the knees, so tension is released while lumbar back and recovered the neck. The results are obvious from the first session.

Postoperative also includes breathing exercises, mobilization of shoulder and manual lymphatic drainage. All with the goal of reducing pain and ensure the health of our patients.
