Post-Operative Services – Dr. Donald Hause

Scar tissue and contracture is improved tremendously with ultrasound. Most believe this is due in large part to the thermal effects of ultrasound with the loosening, stretching, and re-orientation of collagen tissue. This has demonstrated great effects in speeding the healing of firm or bruised areas occasionally seen after face lift, tummy tucks, or liposuction. Treatments sessions last 15-30 minutes and involve application of the ultrasound over the firm areas followed by home stretching and massaging exercises. Six to twelve treatments provide the best results with improvements seen usually after four sessions. Home exercises and massage preserve the results of plastic surgery.

Ultrasound waves are used to reduce swelling, bruising, discomfort and tissue firmness all associated with the healing process of surgery. This is also effective for treating the symptoms of capsular contracture.

Facial Lymphatic Drainage
Lymphatic Drainage massage is a physical technique that assists the movement of lymphatic fluid in the tissue. By using Dr. Vodder’s method of lymphatic drainage, we are able to reduce patients’ swelling, bruising and overall discomfort much sooner.
