How Can Compression Garment Recovery Kits Benefit My Healing Journey?

The Store features a wide variety of specialized Compression Garment Recovery Kits for a Thigh lift (thighplasty). These Recovery Kits provide a powerful way to maximize your healing benefits by having compression during both Stage One (initial 1-2 weeks of post-op) and Stage Two (2-8 weeks post-op) of recovery. Each Kit includes a Stage One compression garment and a matching Stage Two compression garment. Depending on your doctor, you may need to wear compression garments during both the First Stage and Second Stage of recovery. With a Recovery Kit, you have the advantage of having continuous compression for both Stages of recovery, which is essential for obtaining the best results during the recovery phase and for having the greatest degree of comfort. The garments provided in each Recovery Kit 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. The compression garments provided in each Recovery Kit also provide support to surgical areas for more comfort and help the skin fit better to it new contours. Compression garments are worn like long underwear underneath your clothing.

The following are explanations for each type of product found in a Recovery Kit:

First Stage Garments

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.

Second Stage 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.
