Introduction
Cellulite is one of the complications post liposuction. Cellulite causes changes in the lymphatic system. Manual lymphatic drainage is utilized as an effective treatment for enhancing cellulite. Aim: This study was applied to compare between Vodder Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Technique and Casley-Smith MLD Technique for cellulite after liposuction.

Material and methods
Thirty female patients with cellulite grade 3 after thigh liposuction participated in the study, and they were randomly divided into two equal groups: Group (A) that received Vodder MLD Technique and Bandage and Group (B) that received Casley-Smith MLD Technique and Bandage. The duration of the intervention was 8 weeks per participant, and each participant received 3 sessions per week.

Results
The results revealed that there was a significant improvement in both groups by using two different methods of treatment (p < 0.001), but there was no significant difference between the two study groups (p > 0.05).

Conclusions
Both Vodder technique and Casley-Smith technique are effective in treatment of cellulite after thigh liposuction but there is no difference between them, hence any technique of MLD is recommended to achieve better improvement in this case.
