[Sage Bodywork] made a dramatic impact on my surgery recovery. I’m amazed at what lymphatic massage can do and their level of care was out of this world.

Your Healing Timeline:

Massage Before Surgery


A pre-op massage primes the body and mind for surgery. Schedule as close to your surgery date as possible, within a week.

Lymphatic Drainage Soon After Surgery


Starting 1-14 days after surgery, come in once or twice/wk to relieve post operative swelling and discomfort. Continue until swelling resolves (2-6 weeks).

Scar Tissue Massage for Optimal Results

Wait until 3 months after surgery, then return for McLoughin Scar Tissue Release, which reduces scars by 30% and improves both aesthetic and tightness. Most scars need around 5 treatments.

What to expect at your post op massage

  • Each massage is customized for you.

  • We respect all bodies and will do our best to make you feel welcome, safe, and comfortable. Our practice is gender-affirming and weight-neutral.

  • Safety is our top priority.

  • We do not do incisional drainage or wound care.

  • Your treatments should never be painful, even if you're very bruised and sore. Your body is trying to recover from the trauma of surgery, and more trauma won't help it heal.

  • We have lots of pillows to help you lie comfortably and safely after procedures like Tummy Tuck or BBL. You don't need to bring anything.

  • It's best to remove all clothing and compression garments for your massage, but we can work around compression, bandages, etc, as necessary.

I’ve gone to 3 massage places in the area to get my lymphatic drainage massage after liposuction and this is the only place that I feel and see an immediate difference. I highly recommend them.

I had one hr of lymphatic massage with her and I tell you, the moment she was done, the hardness got so much better. It was like magic. I wish I had went to her right after my surgery.
