Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)

We are so pleased to announce that Taylor Young has joined our team at Toronto Plastic Surgery. Taylor is a certified medical aesthetician and will be offering our patients a variety of medical facials, skin peels and advice on skin health and skin care. In addition, Taylor is trained in providing an outstanding treatment called Manual Lymphatic Drainage.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle therapeutic massage technique that targets the lymphatic system, promoting the removal of excess fluid and toxins from the body.

The manual massage encourages lymphatic flow and increases fluid drainage. As a result, the body is able to maximize the delivery of nutrients to tissues, remove metabolic waste and maintain fluid balance while stimulating the body’s immune system.

During a treatment, light pressure is applied using the hands. The skin is gently stretched and manipulated, moving from one draining lymph node basin to the other. A feeling of relaxation and relief is common both during and after the treatment. An MLD program is customized to the specific needs of each patient.

MLD is an ideal treatment for patients that are recovering from surgery or from an injury.

The benefits of MLD include:

  • Improved overall results
  • Early resolution of swelling or edema
  • Faster recovery time
  • Faster return to normal activities
  • Relaxing treatment that diminishes pain and inflammation
  • Detoxify and cleanse the area of injury
  • Improved energy following the treatment
MLD treatments are offered to all of our surgical patients as part of their recovery package.

The treatments are also ideal for post injury recovery or for people with areas of swelling that are persistent or uncomfortable.

Please visit the MLD page for more information and contact us for more information or to schedule an appointment

The Safe Resumption of Elective Plastic Surgery During the COVID-19 Pandemic

When the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in North America in early 2020, most services including all non-emergency medical care was halted. This included elective surgery both in hospitals and in surgical clinics outside of hospitals. It was clear that in order to be able to reopen our surgical facilities, policies and procedures would have to be put in place to address the new realities of an unwelcome virus within our community.

The priorities would be:

  • patient safety
  • protection of our health care staff and employees
  • obtaining adequate supply of personal protective equipment
  • minimizing any impact of surgery on the hospital system or our surrounding community.

In early June, we were able to begin providing elective surgery to our patients. With many new policies in place, Dr. Brown felt that it was necessary to study how effective these were in maximizing safety for the patients. He spearheaded a study involving six free-standing surgical facilities providing aesthetic surgery in Ontario.

We are excited to announce that the study was published this week in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal.

We looked at 368 patients undergoing aesthetic surgery and followed them for a minimum of 30 days. The highlights of the study included the following:

  • All patients screened before surgery for COVID-19 were negative
  • No patients developed COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19 within 30 days following surgery
  • No health care workers or employees developed COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19 during the study period
  • Overall, patients did very well. There was a low number of minor complications that was consistent with outcomes prior to the pandemic
  • There was minimal impact on the hospital system and other health care resources

The healthcare landscape is constantly changing. No one would have predicted the events of the past year. Our commitment to you is that we will always face these challenges thoughtfully and adapt as necessary to insure that we provide you with the highest level of safety and care.

We wish you a wonderful year ahead in 2021!
