Elle Macpherson has shown fans why she gained her age-old nickname - The Body - and given insight into just how she retains her famous figure.

The 55-year-old ex-supermodel revealed her secret on Instagram, telling followers she regularly undergoes lymphatic drainage on her stomach.

Although genetics, diet and exercise are likely factors in achieving Elle’s age-defying looks, the treatment claims to create a more muscular and defined waist.

Sharing her secret

In before and after snaps of the treatments - administered by celeb-fave Sheila Perez - the mother-of-two showcased the difference made to her taut stomach.

“Special method developed by Sheila for lymphatic drainage and sculpting - they call her the torturer!” Elle wrote as part of an Instagram story.

“But we still keep coming back because it works!”

Just days earlier, the Aussie star continued to showcase how the new regime has helped maintain her famous figure.

“Sheila has developed a method called the ‘miracle touch’ - not sure ‘touch’ is really the word because we nick name her the lady torture,” she wrote.

“Her hands and method are magical for lymph and sculpting. It really works and has become part of my weekly wellness routine.”

However, not all of Elle’s followers were convinced by the treatment’s effects, with some saying they struggled to see the difference.

“I thought your before was an after photo,” one follower joked.

“What are we looking at here besides a different angle?” quipped another.

A lymphatic drainage claims to speed up the removal of wastes and toxins from the lymphatic system which can result in a more defined stomach and waist.
