What Makes Rainey Compression Garments Superior To Other Brands?
Rainey Compression Essentials, founded in 1990 by apparel designer Russell Rainey, is an industry leader of pre- and post-operative garments. Surgeons were seeking a higher level of quality, service and innovation to aid in the critical healing process of their patients.
After collaborating with surgeons, nurses and staff, a new generation of compression garments took shape that met all medical compression requirements without sacrificing the comfort of patients.
Rainey is continually working to improve the construction and features of our garments to incorporate new technical advances that include comfortable, breathable DuPont Power Lycra fabric, an easier to use crotch opening and reinforced seams. We also feature a distinctive line of consultation garments that include gowns, camisoles and robes for easy physical exams and elegant patient modesty.
How Can Compression Garments Benefit My Healing Journey?
Following your procedure, your doctor will ask you to wear a compression garment. Wearing a compression garment after plastic surgery 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. Finally, compression garments
can also help reduce tension on newly formed scars and prevent them from stretching.
Depending on the doctor's instructions, you may need to wear your compression
garment for a period of time that may range from days, to weeks, months, or longer.
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.
