The cosmetic plastic surgery business is a multi-billion dollar global business and is expected to continue growing as surgery becomes more achievable both financially and logistically.
And you can be a part of what is now a very lucrative business for anyone working in this field!
However, treating someone who has just been through the trauma of a surgical procedure is in no way similar to treating someone with lymphoedema. Or someone who has a 'normal' healthy lymphatic system.
In other words, even though you may be qualified as a lymphoedema or manual lymph drainage therapist, that doesn't mean you have sufficient knowledge or skills to treat postoperative patients.
It's time to level up your knowledge and skills!
This is where I come in....
BOOK YOUR CALL
I started working with postoperative cosmetic plastic surgery patients back in 2010, and I felt completely out of my depth! Yes, I was a qualified lymphoedema and scar tissue therapist but working with postop patients was a whole different ball game!
I didn't understand what happened to the body during surgery, or the potential risks and complications that can occur, despite all my previous training and experience. I often felt overwhelmed and worried that the treatments I gave someone who had just been through the massive trauma of a plastic surgery procedure might be detrimental to their recovery. Not helping it.
Fortunately, I was working in London Bridge Plastic Surgery where the lead surgeon and clinical nurse specialist were always at hand to answer my queries, allay my fears, and give me confidence. Being in the operating theatre and observing the various procedures gave me valuable insight into what happens during surgery. And eventually, my confidence grew to the point I knew I was benefiting our patients' recovery and optimising the results of their surgical procedure.
Now, after almost twenty years of working in healthcare alongside some of the United Kingdom's leading specialists in the fields of Oncology, Dermatology, Lymphoedema, Venous Disease, and of course Plastic and Reconstructive surgery I want to share all that combined knowledge and experience with you.
In 2021, I developed the Aftercare Academy which provides cutting-edge, advanced training for Manual Lymph Drainage and Lymphoedema therapists like you, who want to gain confidence working with plastic surgery patients and know the treatments you provide are safe and effective, so you too can have the success I have when treating postoperative cosmetic plastic surgery patients.
