. Doctors may recommend that patients wear compression garments during both Stage One (initial 1-2 weeks of post-op) and Stage Two (2-8 weeks post-op) of recovery. For this reason, a Stage Two garment may be recommended. By having both the Stage One and Stage Two garments, the patient has the advantage of having continuous compression, which is essential for obtaining the best results during the recovery phase and for having the greatest degree of comfort. The Stage 1 Garment offers less compression and is sized a bit bigger (and it may have side zippers for convenience needed after surgery) due to the patient's immediate swelling following surgery. Once the swelling subsides, a patient may wear a Stage Two Garment that offers greater compression and sized smaller than the Stage 1 Garment being that the patient's discomfort has lessened and the patient can handle more compression on the treated area(s).
