How Can Lipodystrophy (Buffalo Hump Removal) Garments Benefit My Healing Journey?
Dorsocervical garments are used following liposuction procedures for buffalo hump removal (also known as lipodystrophy). These garments provide support and compression to the upper back and dorsocervical area (buffalo hump).Following liposuction, your doctor will ask you to wear a compression garment. Wearing a compression garment after liposuction 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. Depending on your doctor, you may need to wear compression garments for a period of time that may range from days, weeks, and longer. Our store features a wide variety of garments. Compression garments are worn like long underwear underneath your clothing.
