Post Cosmetic Surgery

Our physiotherapists have been helping people get the best possible result from cosmetic surgery for more than two decades.

We regularly help patients during their recovery from:

  • Liposuction
  • Facelift
  • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast reduction, including gynaecomastia reduction

With our detailed understanding of human anatomy, we can help manage swelling (oedema), acute back and neck pain, posture related back pain, movement dysfunction after surgery and scar formation. Physiotherapy treatment results in a faster and better post-operative result.

We work closely with several prominent Sydney surgeons who refer solely to us.

Physiotherapy treatment typically begins between three days and two weeks after your operation. In some cases (such as with capsular contracture after breast augmentation) treatment may still be beneficial up to a year later.

Treatment will vary from person to person. We communicate regularly with surgeons to make sure we are providing the best care we can for you.

Your treatment plan will be tailored to you and include a combination of:

  • Therapeutic massage with lymphatic drainage
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Checking the fit of your recovery garment
  • Alternative movement strategies and muscle re-education following surgery
  • Management of raised and red scars
  • Post-operative education including massage techniques and exercises for strength and mobility
  • Bra Fitting

If you are a surgeon and would like to know what we can do for your patients, please get in touch to discuss.
