Full Review
I am a physician and I recently underwent a full abdominoplasty. I researched compression garments before surgery and had myself fully stocked! I bought this piece in a size large. Pre-op I was a size 6 pant ... and usually wear a small or medium, but I followed the manufacturer's recommendations STRICTLY. I brought this piece with to surgery and asked my surgeon to have this placed on me rather than the abdominal binder. This was a HUGE mistake! On post-op day number one, my friend/surgeon stopped by to see how I was doing. I was MISERABLE! The band on top was so tight that I couldn't breath very deeply. In contrast, the rest of the garment was not tight enough and not providing enough compression-- thus allowing an incredible amount of swelling. We removed this piece and placed the Marena abdominal binder (the one with three individual sections.) This was INSTANT RELIEF! I was so much more comfortable and the relief wss so appreciated! I warn you to AVOID this product and instead consider one of Marena's binders.

MakeMeHeal Surgery Healing Supplements & Vitamins Kit (Pre & Post-Op Formulas)

This Pre & Post Op Multinutrient Kit (no Vitamin E) has been designed specifically to help patients accelerate healing and obtain better cosmetic results following plastic surgery (as well as general surgeries) by providing all the vital healing supplements, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids that have been shown to be vital for preparing the body for surgery and for helping one have a faster recovery. Taken in tablet/pill form starting anywhere from 1-2 weeks pre-op or several days before the surgery up until 30 days post-op, the Multinutrient Kit helps build and maximize your body’s tissue reserves of nutrients that are important for the healing process, helps speed up recovery by strengthening the body’s natural healing process, helping reduce swelling and bruising, supporting wound healing, promoting repair and growth of tissues damaged by surgery, and by protecting the body from infection by enhancing the immune system defenses. Appropriate for both women and men of all ages.
