At Beleza, we formulated complete post-operative care based on the most effective treatments delivered by the best plastic surgeons in Brazil. Our plan of care incorporates manual lymphatic drainage, Photobiomodulation (LLLT), ILIB, and kinesiology taping. We offer concierge visits during the first weeks, including mobility and shower assistance.
The application of red and near-infrared light to surgical incisions to improve wound healing, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain by enhancing tissue metabolism
This therapy improves immunity, boosts energy, helps the body defend itself against toxins, viruses, and bacterial infection, and promotes analgesia and relaxation in the patient. Via an optical intravenous catheter through which laser light at various frequencies is applied for short periods of time. The energy imparted to the blood from the laser causes changes in biochemical reactions that result in greater energy production, faster metabolism and increased cellular activity.
Kinesiology tape is an elastic bandage that causes contention and has been widely used in plastic surgery, bringing numerous advantages in the post-operative period. In addition to preserving the body’s mobility and reducing the post-operative complications, the application of taping also offers a series of benefits to patients, such as, support and analgesia during the post-op period. The use of taping also helps to control and reduce edema (swelling) and prevent ecchymosis. Taping also decreases the formation of fibrosis.
The performance of plastic surgery usually promotes injuries in the body, such as damage to nerves and vessels, ecchymosis, and dispersion of liquids, which in turn, causes fluid retention and edema during the post-op period. Manual lymphatic drainage uses manual motions to open up the lymphatic system and allow the retained fluid to flow through the kidney and be eliminated faster. The decrease in edema optimizes the surgical outcomes and causes an immediate relief of pressure in the affected areas, diminishing the patient’s discomfort.
