Add Sinecch by choosing it from the "Color" drop-down menu above.

Product Description & Benefits:
Coming with shoulder straps to secure the compress, provide comfort, and allow for you to move while using the compress, the resuable Make Me Heal Cold & Hot Breast Compress (7" diameter with two 3" extending side breast pockets for above and around breast coverage) comes as a pair and may be used on the breast for both cold and hot therapy to help in reducing post-operative swelling and bruising. As the only compress on the market to offer shoulder straps, this breast compress can be worn while you move around. The compress may be used for a wide range of cosmetic procedures, including breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, breast reconstruction, gynecomastia, mastectomy and nipple reconstruction (see full list below). The immediate application of cold therapy is beneficial for reducing post-operative swelling by constricting the capillary vessels and slowing down the flow of blood and other fluids to the injured or operated area. Patients also benefit from cold therapy’s anesthetic effect on the nerves, which helps reduce the sensation of pain and provides a soothing, refreshing, and relaxing feeling to the injured or operated area. Further, cold therapy reduces the risk of hematoma formation. Because cold therapy helps to restore strength, mobility and range of motion more quickly, patients may reduce their hospital stay, heal faster and feel better sooner. Hot therapy is beneficial in reducing post-operative bruising by helping break down bruising discolorations (i.e. black, blue, purple, green, gray, yellow and other discolorations). Hot therapy can also help increase comfort and relaxation for sore, achy skin and muscle tissues that have been operated on.

Beyond using the Breast Compress during recovery from a cosmetic procedure, this product can be highly effective for mothers who are breastfeeding. The breast compress helps reduce the swelling of breasts that have become engorged after two or three days of post-partum. Additionally, the breast compress helps diminishing the shooting pains that can occur after nursing and that are believed to be related to a sudden refilling of the breast. Moreover, this product can be highly effective for puffy breast treatment, relief from PMS sore breast, relief from breast pain that occurs at the beginning of nursing that is called “letting down of the milk”, and first aid for trauma.

This reusable Cold/Hot Breast Compress provides hours of relief. With simple freezer storage between uses, this reusable breast compress can be applied again and again. The flexible compress conforms gently to the area where the application of cold therapy is needed. The compress's unique non-freezable, non-toxic, gel remains pliable and not hard even at low freezing temperatures. The design of the compress allows the gel to be distributed over the treatment area for better cold therapy treatment. The gel and the material used for the compress are safe and non-toxic, making the compress safe for all applications.

Instructions For Use: For best results, it is recommended to buy 2 compresses to be able to have a cold one ready at all times while the other is being used.

Cold Therapy Application:
1. Wrap the breast compress in a towel and place it in the freezer overnight prior or 5 hours to use.
2. When ready, unwrap the compress and let it sit for 10 minutes. Do not apply the bra compress right away to the affected area as the cold temperature may cause freezer burns or minor tissue/nerve damage.
3. Apply the compress on the breast. Remove towel prior to applying the compress. If you wish, you may secure the compress with shoulder straps. For comfort, you may want to put a paper towel, gauze, or thin clean cloth between the compress and affected skin area.
4. It is recommended to apply the compress for 15-20 minutes (or as directed by your doctor), and then off the affected area for 40-45 minutes (or as directed by your doctor). Consult your physician for appropriate application times.
5. When not in use, wrap the bra compress in a towel and place it in the refrigerator or freezer for future applications.

When stored in the refrigerator or freezer, do not place any heavy objects on top of your compress.

Hot Therapy Application:
Different methods can be used to heat the compress, from boiling water to microwave heating. Before applying the compress on the affected area, be sure to test the compress by touching it to make sure that it is not too hot (extreme high temperature may cause severe burn and tissue/nerve damage).

Microwave Heating Instructions:
Microwaving the compress can be done, but be sure to follow the manufacturer instructions as overheating the compress can damage your compress and voids the manufacturer warranty.
Heat in an 800 watt microwave on medium power for 45 seconds. If more heat is required, heat in 10 second increments until desired temperature is acheived. Allow to stand for 30 seconds before use. It is recommended to apply the compress for 15-20 minutes (or as directed by your doctor), and then off the affected area for 40-45 minutes (or as directed by your doctor). Consult your physician for appropriate application times.

General Heating Instructions With Water:
1. Boil water in a pot that is large enough to fit the compress.
2. Then, turn stove fire off and take the pot off the stove. Wrap the compress in a towel and place it inside the boiled pot of water for 15-20 minutes; or until desired temperature is reached. Make sure that you do not put the compress in the pot until the pot is removed from the stove.
3. Remove compress from microwave and check the temperature carefully. Ensure compress temperature is comfortable for application. If too hot, let the compress cool down for a few minutes prior to use.
4. When desired temperature is reached, apply compress to the breast. Remove towel prior to applying the compress. If you wish, you may secure the compress with shoulder straps. For comfort, you may want to put a paper towel, gauze, or thin clean cloth between the compress and affected skin area.
5. It is recommended to apply the compress for 15-20 minutes (or as directed by your doctor), and then off the affected area for 40-45 minutes (or as directed by your doctor). Consult your physician for appropriate application times.

Compress Care: After use, the compress can be cleaned with a mild soap and lukewarm water. To lengthen the life of your compress, wrap the compress in a towel and place it in the refrigerator or freezer for future applications. When stored in the refrigerator or freezer, do not place any heavy objects on top of your compress.

Healthy Tip: For best results, it is recommended to buy 2 compresses to be able to have a cold one ready at all times while the other is being used.

Applicable Procedures: Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast Reduction, Breast Reconstruction, Laser-Assisted Breast Reduction, Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia), Breast Feeding, Nursing, Mastectomy, Medical Tattooing, Nipple Reconstruction.

What are the benefits/plusses of this product? Broad coverage area.

What are the disadvantages/minuses of this product? A little awkward to "install"
