breast reduction, your doctor will ask you to wear a compression garment. Wearing
a compression garment after gynecomastia 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. Further,
support and compression garments can also help prevent a patient from experiencing
some “throbbing” sensations after surgery. Finally, compression
garments can also help reduce tension on newly formed scars and prevent them
from stretching. Depending on your doctor, you may need to 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, you may need to get both a
Stage One garment and a Stage Two garment. Our store features a wide variety
of Stage One and Stage Two garments. Each of the Male Compression Garment Recovery
Kits offered at the Store include both a Stage One and matching Stage Two garment.
Compression garments are worn like underwear underneath your clothing.
Why Can Wearing A Non-Medical Garment From A Local Store Be Bad For Healing?
Important Healthy Tip: Learn why wearing a non-medical garment from a local store can be bad for healing.
A first stage compression
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 Stage One garments.
A second stage
garment is typically worn during 2-8 weeks post-op (or longer, depending on
the doctor’s instructions). A second stage garment is worn once your first
stage garment (first 1-2 weeks of post-op) is no longer appropriate. Generally,
the amount of time you will need to wear your garment will be reduced as your
move forward in your healing journey. Second stage garments are sized smaller,
are more fashionable, and have a less bulky appearance than first stage garments.
