How Can Abdominal Garments Benefit My Healing Journey?

Abdominal garments can provide support and compression to various parts of the body after liposuction, including the upper and lower abdomen and flanks. Also known as abdominal binders, these garments can be worn after a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). Following liposuction, your doctor will ask you to wear a compression garment. Wearing a compression garment is essential to improve blood circulation, minimize swelling after the procedure, flush the body out of potentially harmful fluids, accelerate the healing process, and allow the patient to return to daily routines sooner. A compression garment also provides support to surgical areas for more comfort and helps the skin fit better to its new contours.

An abdominal garment is typically worn immediately after the surgery and continuously for several days (or longer depending on the doctor’s instructions) and then non-continuously for the initial 1-2 weeks of post-op. During the initial period of post-op, your doctor may instruct you to wear this garment constantly (even while sleeping) and only remove it when you need to go to the bathroom or to shower. Generally, the amount of time you will need to wear your garment will be reduced as you move forward in your healing journey. Due to heavy drainage and long, continuous periods of time that you may need to wear the garment, it is recommended to purchase 2 garments.

How Do I Measure Myself Correctly & Get The Right Size?
